Hi guys,

Is there any way I could do some simple additions to a frame without welding? I was thinking about making a double bar on one of my projects, but I dont have a welder.

Suggestions?

theres a guy on one of these bike sites that built an entire chopper frame with PC-7 epoxy, :lol: :shock: says he has ridden it for years with no problems.

I have a freezeplug in the back of the head on my pick up that started leaking and I slapped some in there for a temp fix, the new plug is still in my glove box 10 yrs later.. :roll: good epoxy should hold anything non structural in place..

Ummm what about brazing? No welder needed and it's got a pretty long and good reputation. lol. Just pick up a bottle of MAP gas and torch head. It's fully capable of building a complete frame with it and some brazing rods. There's quite a few videos on Youtube of guys building complete frames in their backyard with that.
