    Good Morning,

    Owner of a 1971 TS185 that's been sitting for quite a LONG time. Come across an ad for a 1976 TS185 in nice shape but no title. What I hoping to find out is if its possible to strip down the 76 and move 'things' over to the 71 frame?

    I've had one response who said if the 76 is a single downtube frame it should work, would like to know if anyone else believes so with a bit more certainty.

    Appreciate any input.
