Default How do you extend a bike frame?


As some of you know, I have built this bike and the rear wheel bearings have seized. My bike has also been tempered with, causing the engine mounting frame to shift, so its not in line with the bike. That is why I am trying to find a bike to mount my engine on. Buying a new wheel is not worth it, its like $40-50.

For those of you who don't know that is a 100cc 4-stroke engine and its pretty bulky.

Here is the bike that i was thinking to extending the frame on.

I have questions:

Why do some people braze instead of weld bike frames?

Where do i get the tubing/metal to extend the frame? Could Home Depot or Lowe's help with materials?

Where could i have some pipe bent? if I need to.
