And once I had the Phil Wood BB chemically welded into place, no more problems.

Maybe the better comparison is to British dental work of the time . . . .

Yeah, that's an odd one. It has twin laterals, but they only go down to the seat tube. I'm not sure exactly what to call that style.

Around the Cycle is a great local shop! They do most of my repairs. They have awesome mechanics and the guys who value/trade in the bikes know what to look for. They are very transparent. They've sold a few bikes for me and did a great job. I've also had them build up bikes from the frame up, and again, they did a fantastic job. I'd have no problems purchasing anything from them. They even pack the bikes really well...

That quick response doesn't surprise me a bit. I contacted her a few years back, probably after seeing someone on one of her bikes, and she was nearly as quick and I'm in no way a potential customer.

Late '80a I spent a year "reverse commuting" across Puget Sound on the ferry. There were two of us who rode all winter. Myself and a woman on a men's Motobecane. She was big enough for it but it was the usual poor compromise. The island end of the commute had a 50-100' hill from the ferry dock to the road and her effort on it was far from elegant. Well, one day she showed up on a 700c'd Terry. And that hill? Night and day!

I'm about 30 minutes southeast of Around the Cycle. I don't have experience with this bike shop as far as service only purchasing.

They are a consignment bike shop and pretty much have "no haggle" pricing like car dealerships these days.

If it were a different seller id been happy to facilitate.

Reach out to the Cub Shop in South Pasadena, a local bike shop that sponsors a number of events. They have experience with vintage and could likely put you in touch with a frame builder or repair person that could assess that frame.

Google says the Cub House is actually in San Marino, next door to South Pasadena.

(We expat South Pasadeneans are a bit sensitive about the border. ).

I would really appreciate if someone has a chance to look at this during the weekend. If the frame is just dirty and I can clean up the paint with some dishsoap and scrub brush or maybe a little citrus cleaner that's fine. If it's full of little rust pimples and looks like the paint is in really bad shape I'll probably have to pass.

It looks very nice. I'm pretty sure this is the same one I found at $75 and was sold a few months ago and the listing never taken down Now it's $200 and I'm not paying that.

The catalog page Georgena Terry sent me just say 4130 ChroMo but I suspect it is likely Tange tubing

I did and they seem to think it will clean up but a second opinion never hurts. It is a consignment frame so I may not be able to make a deal on it.

Likely an OA bath would really clean the paint up, as I'm thinking of Kurt's Moulton in far worse shape, but yeah, I'm inclined to think it is probably corrosion as well.

I was thinking about how to really address this one.
Bob Jacksons were known for pretty decent paint. This one does not present that.
I think this is the case where it can be saved but a money sink hole.
one would have a Mixtie at the end and a thin wallet.
