Replacing chainstays on lugged frame
A car hit me and my Bridgestone RB-1 from behind, causing the rear wheel to twist out of the dropouts, breaking and severely bending my left chainstay and dropout, twisting the left seatstay slightly and possibly twisting the right stays and dropout. Before I relegate my old friend to retirement as wall art, I would like to look into the possibility of repair.
I would think at a minimum it will need a replaced left chainstay and dropout, realignment of other tubes and at least a partial repaint. I have not found anyone in Georgia who can do this for me. Any suggestions of how repairable this is, who could do it and what it might cost? Thanks.
