threads are no good on my bottom bracket, but i must save this bike
I have a used Motobecane from the late 70s, i think. it has been riding well for three years, but after a small accident the bottom bracket has become very loose. I took it to the shop and they cannot seem to find a new bracket that will screw in tight enough... the frame looked like it could be re tapped to fit a new bracket, or just held in by some jb weld...the loosness wasnt that bad really and I could still ride around on it alright.
this is worth fixing to me, bc i cant afford a new frame right now, and because i like this frame a lot. and the bike just means a lot to me
so my question is... how can i hold this bracket in place?
will it be safe?
already tried teflon tape...
beautiful gorgeous gold frame, with lots of miles and memories...
thanks for any help
