Hello. I am building a 1936 RLD 45 Bobber. I have a RL I-beam fork that has a bent rear leg. It isn't severe but it is bent in at least 2 places. The damaged leg is bent inward toward the hub and not for/aft. My question is whether to use heat, or just bend it back cold. Any advice?

The leg is tempered. Don't heat it.

Thank you. I thought as much but just needed some outside assurance. I appreciate the reply.
