I'm not giving up on that bike; I'll look for someone who can weld, and who can perhaps make small but relevant changes to the frame, where the rear wheel is attached! I have asked the local garage owner; he wanted to see the bike before he made a judgement. I'll have to get that bike down one day (one of those days that allows walking to work) and I do hope he then comes up with a positive message! He was repairing several old timer cars; he might be able to do miracles on an old timer bike too... And if not I don't know who to ask, but I have a garage, so I can afford to keep the bike there until I have thought of something. The last word is not yet said about this issue!
