Tuesday afternoon I put my Rambouillet in the work stand to check everything over before the inaugural ride of the neighborhood coffee shop group ride and I noticed my rear brake caliper moving way too much when I stopped the rear wheel. I thought that my mounting bolt was loose.

Upon closer examination I realized the tubular bridge between the stays has completely broken its brazing and is free to rotate when the back brake is applied. Not a little bit, a lot.

Scientific analysis couldn't determine a worse day of the year to be looking for frame repair/repaint or get a new one. I know the paint alone is going to be big if I have the original finish replicated.

I'm just sick about it.

I deeply sympathize.  If yours is one of the 1st gen orange ones, I don't think there's any way you're going to replicate the original finish.
