Frame welding

Hate to open this can of worms, but since I find myself in this predicament I gotta ask.....if I have the frame repaired via welding, does that make it illegal to import back to the states......original frame, but repaired......

Cheers,
Andy

Nah, just an outrigger and a patch on the rear piece that connects to the cross member

Did any of the threads you researched say anything about patch wielding? In my opinion I would just take tons of pics of before and after, keep receipts and have at it.
