Has anyone had a paughco frame break in half, when driving it? As I have? Take a look at my album. What frame won't break on you? Paughco, is no help!. I e-mailed them. Thay responded, so sad, too bad, your life sucks dude, we will sell you a new one at a good price.

welcome to 2WM! now about the frame, you have a good over all pic of the frame? how old is it? where is it broke at? did you butt weld it back together?

your pic's are hard to see where it broke at. i've seen frames break before, most were bad design or just old. either way, there repairable. where are you in michigan? maybe i can help if you need it.

Nice bike, sucks about the frame.

Is the bike all custom? Looks kind of like a Dyna, but maybe a Deuce tank, and are those air shocks? What's it based on?

Welcome aboard, where are you located?

I love my Kraftech frame! Not only does everything fit perfectly, but the welds are awesome.
