bent frame

So I bought my bike a while back and I'm wanting to fix it up a bit. I bought it from a guy who had a wicked wipeout. And the tail piece is bent a little bit and kicked over to one side. Does anybody know how to fix that mess?

Re: bent frame

you may be able to use a lump hammer if it is only bent slightly. The only other way really is to heat it up and bend back to original position

Re: bent frame

You'll never get it properly straight without a jig, heat and lots of time. You'll be better off replacing the rear frame. Best hope the main frame is straight!

What sort of bike is it?
Most sportsbikes have a removable rear subframe and it's usually far easier to replace it than to try to straighten one.

Re: bent frame

Ya I was hoping you could replace them. I didn't know if it would be easier to replace it or straighten it. It's an 02 954

Re: bent frame

you should be able to find a subframe on ebay that'll fit nicely.
