But of course; this goes without saying. Which bike of yours has not seen recent abuse?

Both common sense and everyone responding above have been trying to convince you of this.

I am not sure you need that sign; your first attempted repair should serve as a functional equivalent.

itís in this tunnel for long term storage and it looks abandoned. Honestly I might start moving more bike stuff into this tunnel if nobody moves this bike in a couple months.

just take the parts of and cut up the frame, you would not want to be responsible morally or legally if some grabbed the frame tried to use it and had a failure resulting in injury

accelerator? as in linear? radiation tunnels? I have this vision of the frame coming alive ..... think incredible hulk

Should we be concerned that LarrySellerz may also apply his McGyver techniques to the linear accelerator?

Just wait till he parks all his steel bikes in there, and then someone fires up the electromagnets.

Ride that bike with the tie wraps duct tape, and epoxy holding it together to the bike shop to use it as collateral for borrowing the bike to take out on the 2 hour test ride!!!!
