Motorbike: Honda Valkyrie Interstate
Default front fork stanchion

Have a spare Honda Valkyrie front fork stanchion that has a bit of a bend in it.

Who around Dublin straightens them?

Thanks

Yes, if you drive around Dublin some of the potholes might eventually straighten them, the Quays are the best Northside heading towards the Point Depot

If I put a straight edge on it, the gap is about 4mm.

I bought the s/h fork for the upper tube, mine had bad corrosion. But I'd like to use the stanchion as it has very low mileage (16k miles), as against mine with 178k miles.
