First of all welders or even welding instructors don't certify welds in structural members because they aren't qualified BY LAW. Engineers inspect and certify the structural integrity of welds on structural components.
Fairwaymike, I see you had a discussion with the mental midget who calls himself "Poop". Well....I've got to give him credit that the name he's chosen for himself appears to be the first thing he's gotten right to date. I clicked on the camera icon next to his picture expecting to see pictures of bikes. Instead there were Star Wars characters and other weird items you would expect to see in a 12 year old's coloring book. Quite frankly, considering the source none of what I saw surprised me. My conclusion ? The guy doesn't have all his oars in the water and I think that really is his picture.
Gentlemen, there is a relatively inexpensive solution to see whether your frame has structural cracks at the weld and is a candidate for further testing or repair and you don't have to wait for BBC to do it.
