We Have First Stage Separation

Frame

Well it's taken longer than anticipated because of seized parts, crummy weather and other things taking up time but finally I now have a bicycle frame and some forks as separate elements. If the weather's nice tomorrow morning I might get some paint stripper and get the frame clean ready for sanding. Then I can decide whether to saw off the gear and rear brake cable guides to create a cleaner look.
