    if there are a couple inches below the break, you can fix it stronger than it was by cutting off 6 or 8 inches of an old seat post (the part that fits inside that frame tube & holds the seat), and hammer it down right to the bottom. Then drill 2 holes thru it from the side just above & below the break & put a bolt thru the hole & tighten it down.

    if you need to hire someone for that kind of work this probably isn't the right hobby for you.

    I would skip the bolts and have the guy weld it together personally. sticking an old seat tube in there is a good idea though

    you'll certainly break something else if you try to ride it that way - if you have a neighbor that owns a hammer & a hacksaw & a drill, have her fix it for you

    my post tells how & later post tells what's needed - hacksaw, hammer & drill

    I feel you are not cut out for this kind of work tho. See if there's someone working on these in your area.

    you might be able to slather the post with jb weld and shove it in there, but you'd have to work quick

    I might try it i'll go to homedepot tomorwow & get it. do you think jb wield will work?

    the post alone will stop side-to-side movement, but I doubt jb weld will hold against the force of the up/down movement - bolts will

    i would need to have drilling done in order to put bolts in right? if i decide to get someone to drill where do they start.

    I usually drill thru in a place that won't interfere with the rear motor mount.

    New frame time! Go to a pawn shop and get a cheap mountain bike. Start over.

    :iagree:

    your NECK :jester:


    this is an example of why i actually AGREE with the pending BAN on motorised bicycles in my state.

    are you just plain daft, crazy, or stupid?

    your FRAME is broken.

    get a new FRAME. before you DIE.

    :rolleyes:

    maybe with some luck, your new "bike" will have four wheels, and have a lil electric motor. and a joystick that you control with your mouth.

    on the plus side...youll never have to wipe your own rear end again! :jester:

    replacing the frame is a last option. i just need yall to give me all repair options. Wielding, or drilling & etc

    If it was my life, replacing the frame would be the "FIRST" option.
