Head tube crack on a rat bike I've loved to (its) death. If money were no object (which, I mean, it is), might it conceivably be repairable? Cheers.
In theory yes if the head tube has been brazed/soldered in and not welded...... it "might" be as simple as sweat out the tube (melt the filler brass/silver) and insert a new one.
If the crack goes into the lugs then new lugs etc etc.
Just a case of finding someone who will do it and how much. Argos might even have it as a repair item in their price list.
£150 at Argos :) maybe cheaper in London with one of the smaller frame builders.
thank you for looking it up! Will have a look around; the frame is stored in Hereford at the moment so maybe there'll be someone in the WMs who would take it on. Thanks again,
Easily fixable, it’s just a metal tube. It’s brazed in so another can be put in its place or weld up the crack.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
