Removing bottle bosses on my frame

Posted on
  • Hi Chaps,

    so I picked up a frame that i'm currently in the process of stripping (paint-wise) so i can get it resprayed at armourtex, I want to remove the bottle bosses that are on the frame and also the hole for the rear break. The bosses for the bottle rack are quite small so I was considering filing them down until they are just holes in the frame and then filing said holes with cold weld epoxy, the same with the brake hole... then filling/sanding it all down ready for re-spray.

    The frame is steel and solid as a rock but i'm wary about the epoxy coming loose once its been resprayed or perhaps weakening the frame.... anyone have any experience with this stuff? is cold weld the best stuff to use?

  • It has to be filled with brass if i am right - check out this website (their re-sprays are also very good):
