If you look closely at the mess of black paint on that bridge, you can see what appears to be a horizontal split running most of the way through the back of the bridge. I suspect that there is a vent hole on the underside and this bike was stored outside, upside down, and the bridge filled with water and split when the water froze. That probably also caused a crack between the post and the bridge, and someone knew a guy with a welder that could fix it.

It still wouldn't concern me from a structural standpoint, but I would replace the bridge if it were mine.
