'worth restoring' is very subjective.

If you are talking dollars and cent...the answer is, not anytime soon.

If you are talking preserving...sure.

Truly, it is an uncommon frame without any real collectors value at this time in the condition you state. This makes it perfect for customizing...BMX, muscle bike, city bike, road bike... whatever you want.

However, when it comes to chopping it up...I can't get behind that, as I've been trying to get one to fall in my lap for MANY years without luck. :shake: So, for purely selfish reasons, I would prefer none of them to be cut or scrapped until I get one for myself! :grin::thumbsup:
