I've been thinking about picking up this frame, for $45, looks like a deal.

Has anybody built one up, any comments?

for that price, if you dont like it, just hang it over the fireplace as chic decor.

I thought of getting one, powder coating it and getting decals to spell my last name with a vowel added to the end. 15 years ago Tange Prestige was good enough for some very highly regarded frame builders.

I looked at it awhile ago. Can't go too wrong. I was thinking that with horizontal dropouts it'd make a fine fixed gear. Still make a real nice SS and with a brand new frame that probably didn't cost you much more than the old beater frame that usually pops up in such projects, you'd look pretty good.

Would appreciate opinions. I checked out Chucks.bikes site and found a mountain bike for $400. It seems too cheap. Full LX with pedals. I was going to re-build my Giant, but at this price, it does not pay.
