Never seen one go that bad before and I'm in the UK, Rust is something we are good at .Found a BB donor. Was kerbside pickup. I didn’t see how rusty it was until after it was home. Really only picked it up for the rim and BB. Put some measurements on the pic prior to cutting it up. See the gap between the chainstay and the seat tube, and the hole?

It’s just sitting there for now, not connected or finalised. Yes, will probably need to change the shock mount as well as the wheel is a fair bit bigger than the original.Looking Cool!
How’s the rear wheel clearance once the shock is under conpression? Looks pretty close from the pic, but may just be POV.
