Default Re: Frame material questions

Thanks Culver. .065 wow that's thin but I never been accused of underbuilding anything. We don't have real bike shops here in hooterville but I found a scrap pile of old bikes and frames in a pile ten feet high and thirty feet across. I pulled an old ten speed frame no wheels just a three piece crank with alloy chain rings and noticed it was tig welded so I gave it the ping test and I think its chrome moly it pings like a bell.

I guess I have the start of a rat rod. The back half anyway. I'll practice welding mild to the rest of it and use 70 s2 filler and beat it with a bfh see how it holds up.
