It would only be better if it came with a double clamp stem yikes I could imagine how happy you are with it, I know I would be.
Was it posted somewhere for sale or did you spot a kid with it? what's the story on the find?

If you have a real problem with the section the guy "fixed", just get an OG Redline top tube pad and you got it handled.

Check out the pics, it came with a original top tube pad.  The area underneath is shiny.  The "fixed" area is the downtube.  It will take 39 years in a basement to bring it back.

The rear has 10g but the fronts are standard 2mm. Matching rims though.  I love these Arayas, I can't get over how cool they are.

I like this.  But love the bike more.

Killer.

This is cool. What's the story on where it came from?

Not an exciting story really.  Far out of my town CL find.  Got lucky, it came from the original owner and sat in a basement for 30 years.

I was pretty happy with it until you told me it would have been better if it came with a double clamp stem.  It's like I was just sitting there having a bowl of Wheaties and you came over and put your dick in it.  The next all original Redline Squareback I come across I will demand it has the double clamp stem or no deal. 
Just kidding of course.  The double stem would have been the cherry on top.

Thanks for your imput.  I agree wholeheartedly is should remain untouched.  The front tire still spins forever, it's unreal.
