Post war frames generally have lower bottom brackets and weaker welds but other than that

Go for it. If you dont like it, turn it back to the street.

Here is a 56 Hornet straight bar. Looks good to me - this may not be a hard core off roader but plenty of fun to be had. This is not one of mine, however I have a 57 Spitfire which is a great all around klunk.

Those are nice bikes but the builder is off his rocker on price. I see them all the time on craigslist getting listed constantly. Most of these hes asking like 850-1k for. Not worth that at all in my book.

Yeah- I just wanted to show an example of a similar vintage Hornet that was klunked.
