    Please be aware that you should do a REVs check to make sure it hasnít been declared an unrepairable right off if you are going to register it. If it has you will need to get an engineering certificate before you can register it.
    In the worse case scenario and the frame is damaged and has been repaired in a back yard, if the bike is on sold and repair fails, you will be liable for all damages including manslaughter.
    The best intentions can turn very nasty if caution is not taken.
