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.
I haven’t used one before. What dramas have you had? It’s by to late for me to change direction with the saddle. I’ve got plenty of others available in the parts pile.Great looking build is coming along. Looks like it will be quite cool when it's done.
I look at that saddle and it makes me hurt a little. I hope you have better luck than I with them.
