The only way a frame could crack, without substantial damage to other components, is a manufacturing defect in the frame or steel.

This is not a bus you want to be riding in, because without knowing exactly why the frame cracked you can never be sure any repairs are effective.

"crack in the frame that can easily be repair " lol

I love when people do that "it just has ____" "it would be easy to fix."

ahhh. then why don't you fix it ?

I would pay scrap prices for anything with a cracked or bent frame.
