I come here chastened and extremely mad at myself, but last night the opportunity arose for an hour's ride while my daughter did swimming training. Stuck the bike onto the roof and drove to the pool, deep in conversation with daughter about her impending braces, completely forgot about the 2m barrier at the entrance to the car park.
You can guess the rest...
So the upshot is that the chrome front mudguard is trashed, the front forks are bent and there is a dent in the head tube - although there doesn't seem to be any restriction on the steering movement.
So my question is - can I get the forks straightenend anywhere in the West Midlands, Worcestershire area and if not what do I need to specify to start looking for a replacement set. I've heard off another forum that 70s Peugeot forks are pretty generic and to a standard size. the bike I've got is not exactly like this but is based on one of these frames in 57cm and running 28 inch wheels.
Thanks in advance
