    Thanks for your help

    Thank you framebuilders for helping me with my project of modifying an old track frame for road use. You turned me on to Nova Cycle and helped me find the right brazing alloy. You especially helped me fixture the head badge for brazing. The bike is a tribute to my late son and it was important to fix his number to the bike.

    If I said anything that helped, you're welcome. BTW how did you hold the head badge during brazing? Andy.

    I used a tip I got here. I looped a a piece of 0.032" stainless safety wire around the badge and then looped a bungee cord around the seat tube and attached it to the wire. I adjusted the loop of wire so the bungee had the right tension. It worked like a dream. I could bump the numbers around until they were in perfect alignment and they stayed in place while brazing.

    As the British would say "it worked a treat".

    Ride Safe,

    Joe
