Hello, I'm fairly new to this site, and I was wondering if you could help. I am converting an '87 Schwinn Traveler to a fix/ss, and I want to remove the downtube shifter lugs to give the bike a cleaner look. I also want to remove some of the cable guides and the derailer hanger. I'm planning to repaint the bike afterward, so what is the best method to remove this extra steel? I am trying to do this inexpensively, and I want to do it myself. It's a 4130 True Temper Frame.
