Default Re: Broken Frame ? Poll..Survey

my first build was on a 1960's Rollfast frame i picked up for 40 bucks. it had two top tubes, using 1/2" tubing, and brazed to the headtube.

both tubes cracked right behind the brazing.

it was a crappy frame to begin with, but like i said, it was my first build, and i wasn't sure if this whole "motorized bike thing" was gonna be any fun.

3 years later and 10 or so builds, i'm hooked, with no more broken frames.

mostly, i've built bikes from the '40s, when quality meant something, and the bikes were built to last. all of them are still going strong.
