Yes, rusted frames usually are bad business. And cannot be fixed.

Not fixable? My shop plates frames all the time. It's quite simple really. Cut out the bad spots and weld new metal in....Trust me, I've seen worse.

Dude, where in PA are you? I can get you an appointment at my shop in Williamsport, Pa.

Well, depending on how many holes there are and where they are, Anywhere's from $300-$1500. That includes fixing the hangers and leaf springs and all.
