That seat is valuable just like it is. Don't toss it!

Re: Vector which was "living in bike-hell" score !!

After having contact with the Vector man Joe this frame is a Vector Mark II 3rd gen.

Breakdown and mentioned it had a stucked seatpost. With some attention the seatpost could be easily removed with the slide hammer

http://i784.photobucket.com/albums/yy128/spartacus-css/Vector%20mark%20II/2012-10-29-142.jpg

When I was starting removing the paint I mentioned a strange welding on the left side of the frame. Could be of a sidehack bitd ?

Pic so far for now, Stripping the paint
