Thanks DisTech.

If it was mine, I'd be trying to drill and tap that hole, or get some help if you need to.
Thanks for the link; it's a great write-up.

As to getting help, I am - from Kientech. I went back and forth for a while, but I really don't mind drilling and tapping (well, I do mind chipping out old bolts). In the end, I'd just end up with an equally lame bolt in a hole that might end up if anything slightly oversize. This way, I'll have a stronger bolt there.

One of the reasons I got this bike is that it's a good one to learn wrenching on. Parts are still available, and it's not my regular ride so if I take a while I'm not left high and dry.
