My '73 wrecked Pog that sustained a Chuck-issimo type of collision last fall makes this bike look like it was in a minor fender bender. Brian Baylis is going to repair it. The rear triangle is the only thing that survived. The rest is way more crunched. I think its worth fixing because its a scarce and relatively early Pog, and insurance is paying for the repair. I'm sure there will be a wide range of opinions about its relative worth compared to pre-crash state, but for that bike, I couldn't see just tossing it. If insurance wasn't paying to fix it, there is no way to economically justify the cost of the repair. If they didn't, I doubt that I would.

Clearly, the person that owned the Eisentraut decided it wasn't worth it.
