Ducati frame welder needed

Anyone a certified welder with experience welding and painting ducati frames? My 1098 was involved in a low side a couple months ago where the rearset ripped the tabs together with it from the frame. I bought replacement tabs and was wondering if someone could weld it back on and repaint the frame. Would the swingarm or engine need to come out? I'd like to get this done professionally and not have to worry about it again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

To bad 4&6 wasn't still here they could have done it for you. Painted or not ducati or honda it doesn't matter. You need someone who knows what they are doing.

I belive to weld the taps on in a good matter... it should be welded from the inside of the frame... so the engine needs to come out.

Pilot X can weld really well.

Although any grade of weld won't prevent the braking of these taps again.

AMS Welding in Lyons. He knows his shit. He was doing all the welding on the Goldwing frames when Honda had the recall on them a few years back. They will probably want it taken apart to a bare frame though and you will have to take it elsewhere to be repainted.
