    Hi CNC,
    I charge $75.00 for a bracket.
    Most people just buy another bike frame and cut the bracket they need off it and then sell the frame.
    This leads to frames without any brackets or not the original brackets.

    How long does it take you to make one of these brackets? $75/hr is not to shabby. At my rate, $75/3 days is not feasible.

    Hi NoogaD,
    I took me about two hours to make this one.
    So I made a loss on this one but now I have the pattern I can make one anytime I like for a client any where in the world.
    I would say I could make one in around 1.5 hours now.
    The problem is that people will not pay to much for this type of repair. If you charge to much then they just use a mate with a MIG to weld on a 1/2" plate that they grind to shape and tap a thread into, or as previously stated they just cut the bracket off another parts frame.
