I have yet another new discovery! The handle bars on the WLC are bent. I thought I had forgotten how to ride until I noticed that.
In the picture you may see that the left bar is bent where it fits the center forging. The forging as well appears bent outboard of the clamping area. The clearance from the forging to the springs is wider on the left which could mean the top part of the fork might be bent - or the springs might just be off center.
How do you straighten forks without breaking them?? Hot or cold?
(I am sure I am the only one who ever paid full bore for a restored bike that just needed cleaning up & spent the next 6 months & copious amounts of cash making it whole again.)
