"""""While perusing ebay I came across this frame, being sold as a 1974 Eisentraut: http://ebay.com/<blah> d=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1

Item # 300010402172

"Based on the photos it looks like a frame I made, a Limited. I would say that it is not worth fixing and I would not do it. Usually when an old frames cracks one place it is ready to crack another. It is very strainge for both chainstay to crack.

I don't usually chime in but... The Limited pictured is not from 1974 - it was built after 1976. I know that for certain because I built most of them from 1974 to 1976. The fork crown pictured with the sealed bottom was not made until after I left to start Bruce Gordon Cycles in the beginning of 1976. As for its value - I agree with Albert's quote completely.
