    FWIW, a buddy of mine had Bruce weld a titanium frame. It did not go so great. Bruce remarked at how awesome the weld came out by noting the rainbowing. Apparently for titanium that is exactly...

    Listing frame size would be helpful. My gut says probably 50% of that price is more realistic for a used 105 bike. Maybe closer to $1k if it was Ultegra level.
