Default Re: It's dejavu all over again.

Checked the entire frame today in the daylight and the only other crack I can find is a real fine one in the seat tube right at the water bottle lug. That's where it gave to let the frame open up. Going to cut the lug off and weld up the hole.

Problem is Tom it's anodizing paint over gold (think candy color) and if I paint just the repair the overlap areas will be darker. I'm just going to strip the frame down to bare metal and repaint it over the winter. I think I'm going to try and find an actual candy paint because the anodizing paint (even though it's pretty as heck) is kinda soft, even zip-ties leave impressions in it.
