J R Weigle's  ' FRAME SAVER '


 


 


Low Cost Insurance
                        for Top Cycles Frames

Today's high performance steel frames are being made with extremely thin walled tubing compared to frames in the past. There used to be a safety margin should the tubes rust.

Not any more! Frame Builders who do repair work, painters and mechanics, are seeing a higher incidence of rust throughs these days. Even if you don't ride in the rain or cross streams, moisture will find its way into a frame. Cool moist conditions can pull in damp air past the seat post, threads and vent holes, building up corrosion over time. The cumulative effect can be devastating.

Why take a chance? Prevention is easy!
An application of FRAME SAVER will add years to a frame's life and peace of mind to its owner.

Developed by US Frame Builder J.R. Weigle to reach all susceptible internal frame surfaces and adhere for permanent protection. Each tin should be able protect on average 3 to 5 frames.
