frame building/modifying question
I have absolutely no idea but something popped in my head this morning,since i cant find a proper sized vintage road frame for myself.
why not simply debraze (desolder) the tubes from the lugs, shorten them and rebraze ? (its an old 20$ frame btw) I would have my 50 cm seattube and a little shorter top and downtube who would suit me well.
the probleme would be the rear triangle, what to do with it?
anyways my question is , is it doable, would be fun to experiment (i have the oxy acetylene torchs and brass/silver rods already
