Couple Questions Before I Start Brazing....
Back story. I bought (from a forum member) some random old frame bits--tubings, fork crown/blades, lugs, bb shell, rear dropouts...various other parts. I planned to use this stuff for my first frame and he sold it to me pretty cheap but after cleaning and soaking in oxalic acid yesterday I discovered something interesting:
The BB shell and fork crown are both Cinelli. (I knew about the BB shell)
At least one of the tubes is butted Reynolds 531 (he thought they were all higher end, butted Tange). I can't find markings on the other tubes though.
Also the rear dropouts are Campagnolo, which I also knew already.
Not sure what the lugs are but I don't think they are anything special.
Question 1: Is any of this stuff rare/expensive enough that I should save it for a later frame when I'm more experienced or is it fine to use it for my first build?
Question 2: Anybody know of a source (or have for sale or trade) for Campagnolo fork dropouts with a single (or double) eyelet?
I'll update later with pictures of the BB shell and lugs and such if that will help determine anything.
