I am planning a restoration of a 74 Raleigh Competition. The frame did not have bottle cage mounts originally but some had been brazed on to the down tube at some point. I would like to remove them for authenticity. If anyone has done this, I would appreciate some advice.
I had thought about heating and removing. Then I would have something like 1/4" hole to cover for both bosses. I have also thought of brazing in a screw to fill the boss hole and then grinding everything flush. The third option is to just leave them in.
Any recommendations would be welcome.
