      Can anyone help with locating a shop that can straighten a bent Shifter frame?  I live close to Nashville TN. Willing to drive and drop the frame off at the shop. Frame is only slightly bent, the front spindles are 3/4″ difference from what I can measure.  Frame is a CRG road rebel.


      Thanks for the help

      A variety of dealers and shops offer frame straightening, so I’d ask around and see what’s close to you in Nashville. You might also check with the local club to see if they can recommend someone.

      As for a recommendation (but it will be a drive for you), I use Second II None Racing in Indianapolis. Bill Hamble has a massive flat-plate and is extremely methodical in his work. He’ll take a full week to straighten it because he twists it, lets the metal relax, then repeats this process several times to ensure the frame is as close to perfect as possible.

      I take my stuff there every year before the season starts…

        Thanks for the quick response. I have delt with CKT on engines but it is a bit far for me. I will give Bill a call.
