Got the Bug again or should I sell the bike or Break it.

Post  Dave Weller on Tue 24 Nov - 5:22

I was a bit disappointed the last time a rode the bike last year, so put it away and brought a Honda City Fly 125. The bike was pulling a bit to the left, but it had an MOT, so I used it until it ran out.
I have rebuilt the front forks and have yet to fit them, but I don't think that will cure it, can you check the fork alignment and make any adjustments, someone suggested trying to bend back the yoke by using a metal pole through the headstock, but I would have to remove the forks.  
Any checks I could make? The distance between the upper fork mountings seem about the same each side of the wheel.

Sounds like a scrapper to me, I assume its been in an accident to have bent the frame. Or maybe frame rusted out as with oldskoolpulsar's bike.
