Is there anyone in the northeast of USA that straightens snowflake wheels?

Thanks

Would you care to share with the rest of the Club ?

I thought I would wait to see what kind of job they do before I shared it. I’m told that they straighten wheels for the race crowd at Loudon.

Can you share with us the year of your bike ?

Or maybe even the date code on the wheel itself ?

OK, I'm glad I waited until I met up with this guy. He didn't appear very comfortable working on a mag wheel and suggested I go with the guys in Arizona. I guess that is what I'm going to do, as it looks pretty painless(two week turn around). My bike is a 1984 R65 and the date code is 4/84. I looked at some of the stuff they have straightened and mine is so minor that they will likely laugh at me!

Well, the wheel is headed back my way from Arizona. It was only out maybe .010” and the changes were very reasonable. The shipping was within $10 of the repair though. They would have to be in California to be any father away from Maine!
