Should have welded it man.

I need a raceface crank set 'bodged' if you fancy it.

I have access to a tig but I just felt like doing it this way to see if it'll hold 8) It's quite an easy bodge tbh

All I used was....... Grinder , file , vicegrips , chemical metal 8)

Nice job. Paint it purple, describe it as recently removed from your Zaskar and sell it on Ebay...

Sorry to say that fails as a bodge job repair on 2 points:

1, distinct lack of gaffer tape

2, not a single zip tie used.

Sorry this frankly shabby bodge has no right to be displayed now go back and do it properly :lol: :lol:
