Frame rusting on my 1100

Drat. I noticed that the frame tube that the center stand is welded to is rusting through. I pulled the bags and took it to a welder but he did not think he could get at it to put a new one in unless I pull the tank, the exhaust, the driveshaft and the battery box. I guess this puts a bit of a cramp on my riding for a while.

Anybody ever just cut that crossmember out and keep riding?

I welded some bracing to my 83 with the bike intact except for the exhaust. If you don't need to use the center stand just ride it like is is until you have time this winter to take it apart and have it fixed.

I may end up doing that. I have to head out of town for a few days so I have a few days to think it over.

Thanks,
Andy
