Frame ID?


Just bought this old frame and I’m hoping for some information about it.

Thanks in advance for any input.


Thanks for this input. So the consensus is they should be straight? No rake?
Yes, what @2old2care said.

If I'm understanding what you are asking...the rake is determined by the angle of the head tube, and does not seem to need messing with.

But the fork lowers appear bent toward the frame.

The lowers need to be straightened so they are on the same plane, as the upper part.

Do not use heat. Bend them cold but slowly. @FOMOGO has a great article about the topic, with good pictures.
