Hello Cabe'rs.

While at a very cool garage sale yesterday that had many tank bikes, cruisers, and hot rod parts I spotted and brought home a Hawthorne duralium frameset. In my enthusiasm I didn't quite look the frame over as closely as I should have and only noticed the broken rear drop when I got home. Bummer but I hope to fix and make it a functional bike once again.

Has anybody had repair work done on these frames, are they weldable? I assume they are 6000 series alloy? I have a friend that is a very competent welder and before I contact him about repair I thought i'd ask the pros for guidance first. I sure hope to proceed on this build.

Thanks!

Just a quick update for those with interest.

Welder did a fantastic job, no issues so far.

I will post repair photos when I receive them.

Cheers.
