8) Really pleased - I was so disappointed when I got them that they had the crack in them, glad they've had a new lease of life :D

I actually prefer the non-stickered, silver ring look, first image; very clean.

Doug, how bad was the crack?

Reckon your boys would be able to do something with my non drive-side RSR?!

Has a hairline crack across the BB end - not spread through to tapers.

Would be lovely to get them up and running again...!

The cranks look great BTW!

its good practise to cut out the crack as far as possible so that you can fill it with filler rod. this will give a stronger join, just welding over a crack will have no strength at all. it will never be as strong as it was from billet, but if you tread carefully, it should be ok?
