Anyone have a Crashed or otherwise damaged frame to get rid of?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of starting a little project, and am hoping to find a free or very,very cheap frame to start with. Road or mountain, and condition doesn't really matter, tell me what you've got. All I'll end up using in the end is the BB, head tube, and where the seat tube, top tube and seat stays meet (does that have a name?).

If the top tube, down tube or seat/chainstays got messed up on your frame then it is perfect for me.

I'm contemplating a project like this:

If you use a one-piece head tube assembly instead of separate top and bottom head lugs, it will immediately restrict the size of the frame you can build.


and where the seat tube, top tube and seat stays meet (does that have a name?).

"Seat lug"

Allow me to observe that you will probably also need the rear dropout assembly, and that the angles of each of said lugs will also be rather  a controlling factor in the specs of the frame you can build.

One of the nice things about lugged frames is that they're eminently repairable after the sort of crash you describe.
