Welding in/around Chicago

Anyone here that can recommend a good welding/fab shop? One of the tie-down rings on my cheap rip-off chinese motorcycle carrier broke off, looking to get a new one welded/fuzed/whatever back on.

Any auto repair shop with a MIG welder could accomplish what you need if your carrier is made of steel. If it's aluminum or alloy you may need to go to a specialty weld shop. For the best shop around I'd recommend Framecrafters in Union. It's a bit of a trip out past Elgin but, they're the best around. Totally motorcycle oriented and top line pros make it worth the trip.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

Thanks for the suggestions -- it is a steel carrier, so I went to the closest body shop, and they welded on and painted some scrap steel. Also got them to drill some license plate relocate holes while they were at it, too.
