    Call Rick Harrett at Highway Cycle. 905 690-3966

    If it's really bad, consider a replacement with re-stamping - (talk to Rick) Or... if you absolutely have to keep your original frame these guys can help. But be prepared to pay large! They have a frame jig with hydraulics. They require your frame and "empty" engine cases to perform the work.

    Charles, Here is the chap who can look after your requirement that is close to you. Couldn't remember his name at Norwood. He is Denis Curtis and you can contact him at 613 967 8112 or denis@cmrracingproducts.com. Congrats again on your trophy win at Norwood.   Bob....

    Check with Roger McHardy, he does a lot of frame straightening on British bikes or what ever you have and knows what he is doing. His email is romchardy@golden.net or phone # 519-887-8141. I hope this helps you out.

    Hi George Schwarz here...[ formerly S.S. CYCLE in TORONTO ] 416 996 5940 
        I've been repairing BIKES over 40 years . Used to have a salvage contract with " STATE FARM ". I've straightened many frames , even for other BIKE SHOPS . I've done HARLEY , BMW , HONDA , KAW & all BRITISH . FLAT rate $500....
         It is dome with hydraulics. Rarely is heat required for stress relief . The BIKE must be completely together , so alignment can  be checked & controlled , because all metals have a certain amount of " SPRING BACK " ....
        IF interested or just want more INFO , please contact ?
