Managed to get a 2nd hand frame for £42 delivered so the rebuild is on.
I'm off work mon/tues so hope to get stuck into sorting the new frame. Ive ordered the swinging arm bearing kit and want to get stuck in. Think I will keep a running total of the costs just to see what it ends up at. Current total inc bike £665 ( best not let the wife see this )
The plan is now a total restoration, my OCD could be tested
