Good points and thanks for the replies. Seems like it should not be the dumbest or most dangerous thing I've done. Future People: feel free to reply if you disagree. :thumb:

Fit would be hit or miss. If you can find another cheap frame from the same era, you may have better luck.

I've seen it done both ways in production bikes, but again, I am asking about retrofitting. Is one inherently stronger than the other?

Adding through mount rack eyelets

I've seen one, maybe two, 18 wheelers with road bikes behind the cab. Makes me happy when I see it. Stay safe!

This doesn't make sense to me. I've sold things where the highest bidder backed out and I am left to relist or offer a second chance. It seems like if you bid that amount and actually wanted the...

Beautiful Cresta! I had one once but sold it to get an '85 Trek 520. If mine had looked like yours currently does, I would have kept it!

I have one and love it. I tried to mount some Schwalbe Smart Sams in 40 or 45 and they wouldn't fit. I want to say they were 45s, though. I have some tubeless hutchinsons on there now.

Nice! I picked up a '72 in blue a while back. It had been modified over the years, and the paint is rough (only a head badge left). Is yours all original?

I was looking at one on Ebay a week or so ago. It appeared to be well made with nice lug details. I couldn't find anything about them but didn't try very hard.

Yeah, the corrosion doesn't hurt it quite as badly as it does steel. You could remove bubbled paint, polish to a shine, and wax if you didn't feel like using touch up paint.

I had one of those Crestas, but I think mine was a year earlier. Nice frame. Pretty slack angles, though. Go ride it off road and make your decision.

These come in 700x40, or you can run them in 29x1.75. :)
