Subject: [CR]Simplex frame ends

I've currently got a Flying Scot frame from 1957 with Simplex frame ends - nothing unusual in that - but - the right-hand side looks for all the world like a mirror image of the left-hand but with the hanger portion having been brazed onto the underside rather than a one-piece assembly. It doesn't look like a repair and would not be otherwise noticeable if it were not devoid of paint. Was this common on Simplex frame ends or is it just a well executed repair following damage to the hanger ?
