    Default Needed: Someone With Welding Skills

    I have an old-school Hutch bike frame that has a small crack in the seat tube I'd like to get drilled, filled in and smoothed. Anyone have experience in bike frame repair?

    Is it welded or lugged and brazed? 4130 or steel? (Usually there is a sticker) post up a pic... I fixed a frame a while ago and ailver soldered it.9

    it's 4130. I didn't get a chance to take a pic today, was swamped with stuff but, it's only about 0.5" long.

    Very similar to this but only on the one side, not across both sides.

    Cracks up there... I would let it buck. Drill some 1/8" holes at each end and moniter it, thats what I would do.

    No can do. Vintage 80's freestyle frame that's worth good money when repaired and refurbished.
