Hi,

Is it usefull to conserve the inner sides of the frame tubes of a 57FL rigid frame and if, how is it done? Which of the tubes are accessible (the frame is completely stripped down).

Thank you!

Thomas

I would recommend a frame man for all major repairs, like wasco frame . They have all the proper equipment for repairs.

Thomas,
It is neither feasible or possible to get anything into the interior of the tubing. Most is closed off from the atmosphere and impossible to access. Don't worry yourself over it.
