Revived Orbea

Customer Alex had an unfortunate accident which resulted in a severely kinked chain stay.  What to do?  Trash it?  Recycle it?  Turn it into a decorative house ornament?

No way!  Peter Dreesens to the rescue.

Left chainstay with severe kink in the tubing.

A close up of the kink

The new chainstay, left side, with MUCH smoother brazing work.

Bike stripped, chain stay pulled, new chain stay brazed on, bike repainted and assembled.  Good as new!

If you have a damaged steel frame contact Peter Dreesens and revive it!
