    I recently purchased a papered frame off eBay, was gonna take it too get powder coated. Before loading it up I did another inspection on it and realized it’s missing the metal tab / brake line holder on the bottom right of the frame.

    It’s a 96’, I compared it too my 93’ and was quick too realize it looks like it was sheared off or torched off the “new” used frame.

    Any vendors that make a kit for the factory cable rear brake / parking brake line holder? Don’t feel the need to upgrade to hydro, cable works fine for me and I already have those parts…

    thanks in advance

    its looking like it lol I damn near think I’ll cut the old one off as clean as possible, have my local metal fab shop weld it on the papered frame followed with the sandblast / powdercoat

    DO NOT sandblast where number is, and only clear coat that area

    I would just fab a new piece, otherwise it decreases value of old frame, either to you or someone else.
    Seriously consider gusseting frame, at least the bottom where they bend when you run into something
