    If it can be fixed, Laurie Alderton can fix it.

    Dr Bob Martin in Melbourne

    He used to straighten GSXR rims every time

    As they say if it cant be done in Melbourne , it cant be done

    I think he died.
    (Although someone else might be running the shop now)

  7. Coupla things wrong with that, Melbourne isnt in Sydney (which is quite
    good), and Bob Martin is dead now.

    Yep, Bob the man passeth, Bob the business continueth. Unto his
    sons, or something.

    They just straightened one of my fork legs for $55 and didn't
    charge me anything to measure the other one and declare it
    straight. Good guys.

    His son Steve has taken over the business (no not that Steve Martin and not
    the other Steve Martin and probably not any other Steve Martin you might be
    confusing him with). I think he'd taken over the general day to day running
    of the business a few years before his father passed away because Bob had been
    ill for quite a while before his death.

    I also have a slight bend in my front wheel (BMW K1200RS) and my local
    BMW dealer recommended:

    Laurie Alderton
    Smithfield, NSW
    9609 2889

    Cost is approx. $75 apparently.

    Note, as the bend in my wheel is minor, I haven't taken it to him yet,
    so this is not a personal recommendation.

  15. My wheels are both bent all the way around,into a circle...

    XL600RMG,and was happy with the results)
