repairable top of seat tube?
this question about the authenticity of a Gios has been hashed over in Classic & Vintage
but I thought I would ask here about whether this seat post clamp can be repaired.
it seems to be a fissure at the base of that cut, I"ll have to check if it is all the way through or on the surface) can be repaired? my frame painter here was distancing himself big time from it, didn't want to touch it. But I thought steel could be repaired fairly easily without replacing the entire tube.
a larger version of the clamp can be seen over at C&V-I don't have the original here.
