Busted Bike

Top frame bolts snapped on my klr (They were upgraded high tensile??)

Tied the klr frame together with chord and rode it 40km back to a town, standing up, to keep the weight off the back.

The rawness of Chilean backyard mechanics was exposed when the bolts were drilled out on a 30 degree angle.

So we hammered/forced a big bolt right the way through both (now large and obscure) bolt holes and welded it permanently… Touched up with silver paint, It was never going to brake again.
