Crack on pannier rack - welding workshop Scotland?
Hi folks,

I am on the road towards Iceland. Unfortunately I just noticed a crack on my right pannier rack (Five Stars).
It is exactly in the middle on top where the fastener for the pannier is fitted.

I think it can be easily welded.

Can someone recommend a workshop in Scotland?

You don't actually say where you are but I'd suggest looking in the Yellow Pages. I don't think you'll be short of welders in Scotland.

I will be in Edinburgh tomorrow. Will check yellow pages.

you probably won't find a 'welding shop', as I doubt there's enough demand for a specialist up here. though there are a few blacksmiths in the towns and villages around you could try. there's an MG/Classic Car garage in Dalkeith (7 miles), and another in Cardenden (12 miles?).

I'd try the classic car garage, as they may be able to do it or tell you who can.

Just incase anyone searches the forum for similar information, I just put a pannier into these guys in Leith, Edinburgh for a bit of a fix up. I only needed some banging into place (technical term!) of a lock and securing clip to pannier rack as it was stretched a bit after coming off the bike. They were ready to trim the latch and do a tiny weld for me. Full workshops etc but they were helpful and said they do all sizes of jobs so it wasn't an issue.
