Can it not be sleeved and welded? Be a shame to scrap the frame, i could also find a home for that.
I don't know whether it can be fixed, my talents are limited to cleaning and polishing
If it can be fixed I wouldn't know who to approach.
Picture below shows the hole, the frame does have surface corrosion but everything seems solid, I wasn't bothered about the surface corrosion because I was going to use it as a commuter and it would have made it less attractive to thieves.
I was going to take it to the tip but if anyone thinks they can make use of it they are welcome to have it - the only condition is they have to pick it up (I am in Stockport)
If someone does want it and are prepared to pick it up can they PM me ?
