Hi ,I have spent thousands of hours dressing welds,at work,and realise just how difficult it is to get it right using a grinder freehand.That is bloody fantastic!.I admire your determination and attention to detail,not easy to get it right.I love the bike and can appreciate how gutted you must have felt ,after owning for so long to discover the crack,I can also be like a dog with a bone at times,my non bike mates tell me "It's just a bike",,But we know better...Top marks dude!
Thanks for the kind words
That first moment when I picked up the angle grinder and turned to my mate and said 'Right, I'm going in'
was a heart in mouth moment I can tell you, but slowly-slowly-catchy-monkey proved to be the best plan of attack, probably took me about 4 hours all in all and many tea breaks to build up courage after each grinding session
