Armstrong Frame

I found another lugged steel British ten speed frame today. This one has an Armstrong head badge in brass, and a bottom bracket set up for a cottered crank. The seat tube is 58 cm center to top. I'm thinking about stripping off the bad white spray paint and perhaps just clear coating the result. Then, some vintage drop handlebars, a leather seat and a set of 700cc chrome rims with a single speed coaster brake to finish things off. It will be kind of the rat bike of road bikes. This should be fun.
