Default Re: Cracks weldable on Pre war frame ?

one thing to remember any metal that has begun to "stress crack" like that has lost its strength , i would clamp those shut using band clamps weld them from the inside finish those welds smooth an then cut small peices out of a scrap bottom bracket an lay them over the top side an weld them on for the added strength. I have seen cracks similar to that "move" to one side or the other of the weld in the past , if you repair it this way you will never have another concern about that area.
