Trying to decide if it's worth it to fix after a crash-
Bought a beater 02 919 a few months ago to commute, really liked it but unfortunately I got hit and runned in the Bay Area while commuting at low speed. I'm fine, the bike is not.
Basically, the front forks are bent, and I think the shift fork is bent as well (was in second when it happened and it wants to pop out under heavy acceleration) but this is less of an issue.
I posted it on Craigslist cause I don't really want to dump money into it but I looked at it today I'm thinking of seeing if I can just swap forks and get it riding again, especially considering how strong the engine is. Never done fork work before, but I have done most basic maint like removing wheel, chain, sprocket, etc.
Would the best course of action be to try and unbend the forks at a machine shop? Or look for a cheap used pair? Are any special tools needed for this?
Open to suggestions.
