Derailuer Hangar Welded - "Puch"

Frame did not have a derailuer hangar and the SIS bolt on hangar was just way to bulky - Cut off the top of the hangar to line up along the bottom of the drop out and tig welded it in place - A little grinding and done... SIS bolt on derailuer hangar $5.48 - Local Bar-B-Q pit builder welder 6 pack beer... All cool...

I do believe in kittens! I do believe in kittens!

Yeah, those welders will do a lot of cool stuff for beer!
It doesn't look like a uber perfect weld, but it doesn't need to hold much weight, so some paint and a little filing will make help it blend in.

Woot for resurrection.

Cool. Campagnolo used to offer part #80/1 for just that purpose:

Did you have this "repair" done after you broke up? 'Cause that's a real slick way to get back at someone!

Though the idea is novel, I must wholeheartedly agree. It isn't pretty, and it looks as if the hanger bolt is now MUCH lower than it should.

Just as you can Drew by hacking things off, you can do the same if you weld things on like a slob. This is ugly - but it does look like a cheap frame.

Yes - I intensionally made it lower to line up and allow for a newer Shimano Derailuer which needed to hang a little lower than the bolt on hangar allowed - That campy weld on is really something - And by the way - After paint this thing looks seamless and is really strong - I would recommend this over a bolt on hangar or for a hangar you can't find at derailuerhangars.com - And Thanks - This is a Zombie Bike...

Are you talking about her car or why you broke up ?

Cool fix! I have seen pictures of several (older) British framesets with the same treatment.

Cheers,
Chris

Any photos? Did you grind/file the rear edge smooth?
