Have come up against a possible major problem!
I had the frame & a few other bits & bobs shot blasted so that I could get them painted & start the build-up, but when I got them back the frame & swinging arm now resemble Swiss cheese in some places!
You may remember that I found some holes in one of the pressed steel brackets on the lower frame which I had repaired & that the swinging arm had been poorly patched. Well more holes have appeared in the same bracket & the cross brace on the swinging arm will need replacing. The swinging arm isn't too much of an issue but the frame could be.
I am going to see if the frame can be further repaired at the weekend but I have a horrible feeling it may be too far gone! If it is it will mean sourcing another frame, or possibly another bike in better nick, but don't know if I can run to the cost of another bike!.
I know that is what I should have done originally but I hadn't appreciated just how shagged this one was!
