Re: Repairing a broken seat mast

+ 1, Chip.  This is a thread to show a repair for guys who have this similar issue.  Kinda turned into a little bit of an advertisement of its own though, huh?  Hey, no problem with that.  Just don't jump on anyone else (ie Chip, or framedoc) for presenting their input on how it could be handled. 

This is a FORUM.  Last time I checked, forums are for discussion.  If this guy or Lou wanted an advertisement, I am sure they would have gotten a banner ad.  I am also fairly certain that the objection does not reflect Lou's view of the input, because Lou and Chip are friends.

Just my 2 cents.  Not trying to put words in anyone's mouth.

Not a bad idea.

You don't HAVE to build every frame and fork you own... right?

Re: Repairing a broken seat mast

Bringing back an old thread. Would love to see how this resto turned out. I have an '80 Torker that needs this same repair.

If you haven't seen the magical stars floating around whilst lying face down in the mud you ain't lived.

Re: Repairing a broken seat mast

Since the original weld needed to be replaced anyway, why didn't you simply cut the original flush with the gusset and replace it from there up? It seems like that way, you could have gotten by with a single weld...and without the grinding required to smooth out the upper weld?

That's not a critique, I'd really like to know the thought process. Maybe I'll learn something big_smile
