I have bought a steel frame for a build I’m doing inspired by some I’ve seen on here of late. I’m putting modern componentry on a older steel road frame.
I found this frame and bought it for $30 due to a small crack in the rear mech side drop out. I plan to have that fixed. However I’m trying to figure out what I’m willing to spend on the frame to get the repairs and paint ect done. The gent I bought it from wasn’t sure what make it is but was convinced it was Japanese steel. It’s been painted silver but a quick sanding reveals a pink underneath.
The geometry is tight. 1mm-ish tyre fork clearance with the 25mm gatorskins and not much at the back either. The ST is 62cm, TT is 57.5cm. In discussion with the seller (older enthusiastic gent) we through around that is might be an older custom made frame?
Anyway I’m here for the wealth of knowledge on this forum so I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking. (1st time I’ve posted pictures so bare with me if they don’t work 1st go).
Thank for any and all info
