Is it my ageing eyes ?

Or do the front forks on this Rory O'Brien look too straight ?

"it was immaculate until I let a family member use it while his bike was off the road and he didn't look after it too well and it got a bit scratched."

Scratched ? . . . . . . . I wonder if someone has run into something.

You are right, they rally really don't look right, the gap between the back of the forks and the downtube looks all wrong!

Having said that I can't see enough detail to see if the DT is bent, so maybe lucky with that and get away with just replacing the forks.

If I was going to bid (and I'm not) I would want close up pictures of 1) the back of the fork legs and 2) the downtube, 6" or so from, and up to, the head tube.
