Given the acquisition price there's a far better chance that might happen!

Please post the process if you decide to repair it.

Before we get to splicing in a new section, Skip and I can roll the tube in a wood block and then in an aluminum block just to see how much of the dent can be removed. My guess is that the dent is too big to get the original tube looking round so we can get more aggressive with the repair. It has several issues that have to be solved.
So spot weld pins never an option? Too much weakening, tubes too thin?

Mods, please excuse an idiot, if I accidentally flagged this thread. 🤭

That flag button is clearly too close to the link, for more pics. Especially on a dumbphone. 😉

Pretty sure as long as you didn't write any complaint in the comments it will be ignored.

That's what I kinda thought, but figured I'd make sure. Heck, if anything, they probably oughta flag me, sometimes. 😁😉
