Hi folks, broke my ty175 front hub at the weekend. The brake plte says magnesiun on it, is the hub also mag or aluminium. Cheers, just wodering if it would be weldable.

Probably repairable, but welding up hubs is something that is an (expensive) last resort on rare bikes that you can't get replacement parts for.

Front TY hubs are still being made and if you have a decent look on eBay you will probably find new hubs available ex Thailand. Apart from that there will be plenty of second hand TY front hubs available. I'll sell you one if you are stuck.

It's quite rare to break a front hub. I'm interested in how it was achieved.
