Really great work there with a solid engineering approach for the original design of the frame, so you don't end up making some repaired piece too rigid for the joints that surround it, for instance.

Being in the shop really made me want a Kirklee frame too. It's a total slobber fest in there.
I sent them an email earlier for a quote.
