Need to replace seat stays
I have an 86ish Schwinn SuperSport that has 2 bent seat stays. One is a simple bend that can probably be bent back but I don't think I can ever get the other side straight. So...I'm thinking about replacing both the stays and maybe even putting some track dropouts in while I'm at it.
I'm not attached to the bike but I think it would be a good rider if I can do a decent job of fixing it. My main concern is finding the tubes and getting everything aligned correctly. I have an acetylene torch but was thinking of using mapp gas after reading about it here.
Is this a good beginners project? Any tips?
