Big Frame Repair
Kenevans Track Frame
This is or may we say was a beautiful Kenevans track bike. That is until Dan hit a car.
He won a frame in a bike race so that fixed the problem. We waited a few weeks and started to fix the Kenevans. We started by
Andrew cutting out a section of the damaged tube.
As you can see Andrew got a small part of the frame pulled out so we can start the next part
heating up the joint and pulling the damage tube out.
Now it is time to let the fire out to do it's job.
The top half of the down tube came out very easy being that it was silver soldered the first
time so the heat I needed was a lot less.
The lower half was a bit harder as I forgot to look and found out it was pined together.
The whole down tube is out and now I must look at he head tube as the top lug was cracked it the crash.
The head tube is off and the cleaning up of the new lug has started.
The down tube goes in very nicely.
You do not see all he work that Dan and Andrew did to clean up the lugs but they look great and the tubing was hand mitered for a perfect fit by the same two.
All most done now Dan will bring it in on Monday so I can cut and face the head tube and bb shell.
Of course what you do not see is all the work done to get to the point of brazing the tube back in. What was fun for me it to have Dan and Andrew there to see the work and experience it first hand. Fun for all around.
So nice all painted and it is ready to go. With a nice before and after photo shoot. Dan will need to get some decals now.
