Bad news. We pulled the frame down and threw some dummy wheels in it for a a test fit and it was a perfect fit for me.
As I was closely looking it over I found a crack in the headtube. It was about a 1-1/2" long and orginated at the bottom almost worked its way up to the weld. Viewing the headtube from the bottom it would be in the 7-8 o'clock position.
Thats a very odd position for a crack. Either the frome took a beating, it has a thin headtube or someone forcedd the lower headset cup in crooked.
Oh well, it was a good attempt.
