True to my name, I picked up another junker yesterday. Not a terrible deal really, as I ended up with a nice collection of Campy SR/NR bits. However, the frameset has seen better days. Not sure of the year; SR rear derailleur is Pat. 81, but it may have been a replacement. I've found some photos of early 80s Personals online, but none have the internal cable routing.
What are the thoughts on the top tube near the seat cluster? Caput? I know the ends of the tubes are butted, and I know the top tube doesn't take huge stress loads, so maybe it's salvageable.
At 58 x 57, the frame is a bit smaller than my preference, but I'm toying with the idea of a prep and paint (not by me). Or maybe pass the frame onto someone else. But I don't want to spend the cash on something that is structurally compromised.
