+1 the gusset has rust holes in it???? yikes  What about the rest of the tubes??

This must be a carpet queen build, I sure as heck wouldn't ride it!

It’s actually pretty solid and I’m building it as a rider I’ll go out on it with my boys check out the recent update it’s now in bare metal (blasted no other holes in it had some pitting underneath pics including of them too

These frames are super beefy and strong so that little bit of repair wont be any big deal.  I'd ride it hard and wouldn't worry.  I like your build cool

I would love to find a destroyed frame set like that to just leave alone and build up with fresh parts. 

You are doing a great job saving it this way aswell!

Go down to your local creek or canal with a hook and rope,  I'm sure you can drag one out.   


OP-nice work on the frame restoration

Wish I could do that. This is going to be a great thread.

You can...no need to wish! Get a cheap welder watch some youtube videos on how to weld and start practicing...smile

+1 actually pretty easy, invest in a cheap set up practice a little bit


I have been gone for awhile though I still love Bicycles. I’m looking for either another OM or something similar. Please hit me up with what you have! Hope everyone is doing well.

If you haven't seen the magical stars floating around whilst lying face down in the mud you ain't lived.
