The frame wouldn't have any problem holding the weight if the weight is transferred to the ground properly. Some people could design such a thing, I'm sure some other people would mess it up.

I rode one of the local rail trails with 25mm tires and I really wished I had 32mm tires. Probably larger tires would work marginally better, but 32mm seems fine.

They still make those tires, but I ran out of patience for maintaining tubular tires back in the early '80s. If you really want to use that bike it might be better to switch to 650c clinchers.
