Here is my first "build" post... I hope it all works! It all started when I went to pick up a 64/5 Spaceliner I found on Craigslist and the guy offered me this


The seat tube was bent and the welds broken. I decided to cut it low and replace it with a new post, but first it needed a little character...



Then I put a couple tack welds on the cross brace between the top tunes and down by the bottom bracket...

I totally missed this build earlier this year.
I love what you did with the seat tube!!!!
Great looking bike.
By the way, it's actually a Flightliner frame and not a Spaceliner. It's equally cool, just different.
