This is probably a very stupid question but I will ask anyway. I am in highschool and for metal shop am considering building a frame. It will be lugged steel. My question concerns matierals. I have a much to large Schwinn Super LeTour frame. As I would like to keep costs at a bare minimum I was wondering if it would be possible to unbraze this frame and shorten the tubes then rebraze basically recycle the tubing and lugs. Would this work? Thanks for any input as I'm sure this is a stupid question.
