OK, that's acceptable. I was curious if it was playing a major role in the owners decision to have or not have the frame repaired if say he was 6ft and bought an XL,  that by todays standard isn't even a size SM. Agree, the bike looks absolute MINT. That's the thing though, when you know how to service/repair your own stuff vs pay someone to do it, it opens up a whole realm of possibilities. Because a lot of times the cost to pay someone's time to fix/repair/rebuild a product, is almost what something new costs, but when it's your time and you can pick up the part/product for next to nothing and fix/repair it for minimal parts, you can get a lot for your $$.  Last new parts I think  I've gotten  for any of my bikes is rims and then I just lace them into existing older wheels with narrower rims, reusing the old spokes and nipples if possible, but getting a substantially better wheel because of the newer, wider rim for a fraction of the cost of a new wheel/wheelset AND I know that they're built properly.
