Broken frame

Post by Maz »

Hi chaps.
As you may or may not have read on here, I replaced the frame on my 1000 last year due to the dreaded cracking at the ends of the support tube for the mainstand. I did take pictures of the damage but, due to a corrupted SD card in my camera, I lost the images. I write articles for Tansha, the VJMC magazine and have submitted a report, detailing the work on my bike, but the editor has asked me if I can find a larger, Hi res image of the actual damage on the frame (the image I supplied was the one displayed on the Wingovations website but it is only a small file).
If any of you have such an image of the typical cracking at the ends of the cross-tube, I would be very grateful if you could let me know.
