I was given this frame, it is a '80-something lugged steel Viking. I want to build it up but I don't know if this small crack in the bottom bracket shell will be a problem. It looks like the paint is peeling back a little bit and there is a bit of rust and maybe a small crack between the left chainstay lug and the bottom bracket shell. Other than this spot there are quite a few paint chips but the frame seems to be in good shape.
Does anyone with more experience with these old steel frames know if this needs to be welded or just cleaned up a bit and repainted?
