    This is a 1935 Wards Hathorne Duralium "Window lug" frame.

    I have a few ideas kicking around, so we'll see which direction it takes, but here's the beginning.

    Those TA cranks are rad! Does this frame have a provision for a seatpost clamp? The one I had needed one of the internal wedge ones (like a stem).

    Yes, it has a traditional clamp, although it currently has a crack in the sleeve.

    As we secretly observe this
    RatRodBikes society and it's said Build Off, we have seen
    you're not at all restoring an aged Aluminum bicycle, you are definitely being Naughty.
    If in any level of quandary as to naming your machine.
    We have held a secret vote
    and humbly submit our new suggested moniker for your
    consideration:
    AlumiNaughty
    Regards, Build On Brother

    In Poland we tend to refer to Aluminium as "Amelinium" from a stupid movie where a drunk farmer was trying to explain why you cannot paint it, and that it needs a special paint.:21:

    Also a friend a of mine tends to call it "Anomalium" from the word anomaly. :rofl:
