I hit some Railroad tracks REALLY hard!!

I need a front and rear rim for an '02 954rr. PM me and let me know what you have and the prices. Also, if you know of someone that straightens rims, would you pm me the info??

Thanks

Re: I hit some Railroad tracks REALLY hard!!

Ouch, if you hit them that hard, it probably didn't feel real good. You've probably checked eBay but if not, that's where I always start. There was a thread on wheel straightening the other day, here's the link...

Re: I hit some Railroad tracks REALLY hard!!

I have a front wheel if you are interested. I bought an 02 54RR about a month ago and the guy had put Chrome wheels on is and kept the stock ones. [email protected] if interested.

I like to ride with my eyes closed and see how far I can go before I hit something.

Re: I hit some Railroad tracks REALLY hard!!

This is who I use to straighten rims in the midwest. Extreme Cycle - Repair & Service of Cycles, ATV, Dirt or Street

He's not exactly speedy, but very reasonably priced and does good work. Ask for Brian.

I do all my own stunts.

Re: I hit some Railroad tracks REALLY hard!!

If I knew how to post pics I would show you all what I am talking about. There was a 90 degree left w/an incline at the crest of the incline were the rr tracks, (already installed) with a HUGE pothole in front of the metal rail. I hit the pot hole thus causing me to strike the rail even at slow speed under 20 it almost flipped me over the bike!!!

I think you should ride it with wobbly rims like in the cartoons
