I bought an 80's Swinnerton with a full (except wheels) C-Record group on it. The frame is Columbus Max tubing and has some beautiful weld finishing. The fork and chainstays are chrome, but is a bit worse for wear, but I can clean it up nicely, or repaint with new decals, which I can make at home.
My only concern is a rust hole on the bottom of the non-drive side chainstay. It was covered with foil tape so I didn't see it when I bought the bike at an auction. As I have never heard of Swinnerton, got the bike for the C-Records components anyway.
Can this be brazed closed, or welded? I'l, file it smooth then repaint the area.
Thanks for the info,
