Here is a pic of the break in the frame. Preparing the frame for welding, cutting reinforcement steel, and grinding, took 2 1/2 hours. With these repairs I was able to transport it home. The 200 mile trip took 5 1/2 hours since the frame is still in very fragile shape. The wheel bearings stayed cool and the tires (very old) performed flawlessly. I towed at a maximum of 40 MPH or less the whole way home on NC backroads.
