After looking at the pictures, you're probably okay - I wouldn't expect it to buckle on you all of a sudden. But there is that chance. And the frame probably isn't worth what it would cost to have a framebuilder do a little reinforcing work on it (if that's possible here, and I'm not sure that it is).

It looks like you're running RSX parts. If you just need to replace the frame, you could replace it with a Surly - I'd guess hard to find welded-steel Specialized frame by itself. (but maybe the Surly Pacer - their road bike - isn't the best bet, b/c you'd need threadless headset and stem, and long-reach brakes)
"c" is not a unit that measures tire width
