I may have found an almost unmolested '66 frame within driving distance, but to remove the spring someone has taken a torch to the seat post, from the photos it looks like it got pretty hot. Do you think this could have caused any 'stress' damage to the metal? I know, probably depends on how hot and stuff, so I guess I'm just asking for some opinions. It does look like it got hot, but I'm not too awful ascared of it, but what do I know, I was a smoker for 30 years. What do you guys think?
Also, this frame doesn't have the 'gusset' added to the left lower rear leg, if I end up buying this frame should I add it?
Thanks for your time.
