Cracked my frame

Yep I cracked my frame.




I was jumping my XR50 a little to hard this weekend and cracked the frame. I still rode and jumped with it cracked and it didn't really crack much more. I cracked the neck and thats kinda the important part. If it broke I would have been in deep doo doo. I'll spend today bead blasting it and tig welding it back together.

Got it all welded up and primered. I TIG'd the neck then mig'd over the tig. I wanted to use the tig so I know I got good penetration. Then I also mig'd in other places because I felt pretty good about my welding today.

Me too. I took one look at the title and thought this has to be one hell of a story.
