You're right, although I like those frames and the opaque blue paint. I know the bike won't be worth what I put into it but I'm old and just chase what I like plus, as most can tell by some of the questions I've asked, this be my first attempt at putting a bike together without its original parts. I'm learning from you all. As an added bonus, the weather here in Detroit is still nice so working conditions and my beer supply continue to facilitate my attempts at finding or building the ultimate vintage ride!
