Listers and Listees,

I recently have been assigned as the custodial care guardian of? a 1975 (I think) Teledyne Titan frame with the ORIGINAL FORK.? It's a 58cm frame.? Unfortunately, it was temporarily under 9 feet of seawater when Katrina hit the Biloxi/ Ocean Springs, Mississippi area.? So?the components ?on the frame with steel bits are very corroded.?? As the future caregiver for this frame, I need some info from the Titan experts on the list.?? 1)? Are there decals / transfers available out there?? 2) I have a 26.8 seat post in the seat tube right now but appears a?just a tad?loose.? Is that the right seat post ?size for the frame?? 3)? The tiny cable guide that mounts on the drive side chain stay.....where can I get one of those?? 4) I have not looked for the serial number yet.? When I find it, I'll post it to Dale's database on the CR page.? 5) I'm not changing the FORK. Thanks, David Allen Marietta, Georgia near the Big Chicken
