Re: ciao cock bung f up tank junk

Ugh I've had multiple frames that have been sold to me via ma that were like this. The real problem is when it's all fixed up then the frame itself fails structurally. The original bung is actually brazed in. The problem is that the metal where they originally brazed it was probably cleaned of all protective coating in order to get a solid braze. So the only coating keeping the rust away is the paint. This is a common fail point on ciaos. If the bottom is that rusty either weld in a crossbar or be prepared for the break while riding.
