Don't drink beer and buy parts . . .

I purchased this case when I was drinking beer at a swap meet.  It appeared to be a good deal, at a good price.  Then, with proper eye-focus . . . I noticed cracks, bad threads after a good cleaning.  Lucky for me, Pat welded up the breaks and cracks, and McFarland machined, drilled and tapped for the new stud.  A couple more adjustments and it's almost perfect.  Everything I ride pretty much started out as someone else's "put back" or the part you pick up, see it's bad, and set it back down.

I feel like I too have had a lot of these "put backs." :)
