What parts of frame to keep?
I recently cut up my old steel frame which Iíve had since 1979. This was my primary bike for many years and was a beater/winter bike for a while, then it became my one legged fixer. It had lots of rust, so I didnít want to sell it or give it away.
It was interesting to cut up and I learned a bit about industrial-steel bike making in the process.
Iím curious what parts people think would be good to keep as souvenirs. As Iíve cut the bike up and held the bits in my hand, some parts just seem to have more significance (power?) than others.
Tell me what you think.
