Almost a year ago to the day, my favourite bike broke. It broke because I had about a month prior crashed it whilst trying to ride home in the early hours after a very heavy night and put a dent in the downtube at the lug. Following the crash, I continued to use it but checked the dent daily, then one day whilst riding home there was a noise... It had cracked and I was about an hours walk from home. Cue a 4 pack and a slow and sad stroll home.
A couple days later it got stripped, the parts moved to another build and the frame put in the pile with the rest of the frames I had at the time gathering dust.
Tl;Dr - crashed my bike and the frame ended up cracking.
Earlier this week I took it to Winston Vaz and the following day it was repaired and ready for collection.
Awesome, what tubing did he use to replace it with? He works fast!!
So what's the plan of attack with this build? Rebuild it as a beater or bling it up for the NLTCMCMC track day in a few weeks time?
@HoKe, I've just lacquered the repair and am in the process of throwing together a build out of spares and some parts specifically for it. The end goal is for it to be somewhere between beater and bling.
And bar spin? ;)
