Looks good, too bad with all that work it's going to crack again. You should of staggered your gussets so the ends are not in the same spot on the tube. All that welding is going to make the tube super weak right there.

well im not going to stress about it! :lol: wasnt planning on welding them soild but i see your point. im thinking if i ever get it back together that i might get a few miles out of it before it cracks again and then i just might have to get a big boy quad as ken says :lol: or make a new frame but first i need to get it together! :roll:
