This frameset was rescued from a western Canadian (Calgary) dump, shipped to Portland OR, straightened and aligned by a local framebuilder, and is now ready for a rebuild.

ooopps - pics are reversed from my intended order.

Here's the Canadian before and the Portland after at Le Atelier Gugie.
The fork needed some tweaks as well.

Oh, BTW if anyone can help with year of manufacture I would be grateful, thinking 1970s. The paint is so thick the serial number on BB is obscured (no intention of removing paint).

It's a 531 butted main frame. Sloping crown fork. No braze-ons for shifters, cable guides or bottle bracket. More pics available if needed for id'ing year.

Looks great--I love it when someone saves a frame from the trash.

(My favorite was someone who saved a Medici touring frame in CA--on the street for trash pickup!)

I saw a whole Zeus component set go cheap on eBay a few years ago--they were great value, just not as well finished at the Campy stuff, but this will be a cool build.
