    Looking for frame repairs in Western Wisconsin willing to go to Minneapolis

    I need a rear dropout replaced on a '62 Legnano and a cable guide brazed on a '84 Masi.
    Any suggestions?

    Should be lots of options in the Twin Cities. Otherwise, if you're ever in Appleton, I could do it.

    John,
    Here are a few pics of the work I need done.

    I feel both of these bikes are worth saving.

    1st.
    '84 Masi Gran Criterium...
    Middle top tube guide. I have the replacement guide from the PO.




    2nd.
    '62 Legnano Roma Olimpiade
    Campy rear drop out. I do not have the replacement drop outs. I would like to stay Campy but there is no need for the eyelet.

    The top tube guide would be no problem.

    What's the issue with the dropout, though? It looks status post repair of some sort. FWIW, it's a fairly rare dropout with the drilling for the spring of the single-pulley "Sport" derailleur, and depending on your plans for the frame, might be worth trying to preserve.

    The dropout was welded back together. Not sure how it got tore but it was a serious repair done well before I received the bike.
    I don't think I would ever hang a Campy Sport on this bike, I am more of a Nuovo Record or Record type a guy. This is no way a museum piece but I don't want to ride a ripped and welded dropout. I intend on re-chroming the dropouts and refinishing the frame. I was VERY lucky to get some original varnish type of decals from a friend of a friend in Italy. Nothing against Velo Cals or any of the other guys but nothing beats original. Just made contact with a pinstriper in the cities today.

    I'll add a second plug for Chris Kvale. He does a LOT of restoration work for clients on quality vintage frames of all kinds. He can source decals, and does his own paint.

    Chris Kvale has both frames at his shop now. Thanks for the input.
