I have '95 Indian fire trail frame hanging in the garage. It was cracked on the headtube. I had it professionally repaired but as soon as the headset cups went in the crack came back.
Having had a set of forks go due to metal fatigue(5 stitches) I'd say hang it up or cut it up so it cant be built up.

Hi,

Looks like a very good job..might ride it first before polishing to see how it goes.

Thanks for all the work.

ha I always thought it was probab;ly originally some guy, but got taken over by some big corp (not bike related)... but it's good to see that he is still making stuff...


Chris King is a a very vocal advocate of eco-friendly manufacturing, and was part of a recent discussion on the state of manufacturing in the US at the White House

Who does deep headset cups :?:


They're worth more than the frame, though.
