I was told you can only straighten a SLIGHT bend on forks. I just buy new ones if i bend `em.. don-ohio

As I understand it, the chemical make of the metal is changed and it would be much weaker if straighted. They are not really bent, more of a twist in the front so the wheel is going a different direction.

No............not much weaker if straightened only once,really. To make for metal FATIGUE, it takes a second or third correction or more, UNLESS it's brittle like cast iron or brass OR bent severely over a short radius. don-ohio
