The fork on my peugeot carbolite 103 is now twisted by about 5 to 10 degrees. Can I use the 2x4 pine boards and just twist the fork back straight? I am thinking about clamping the bottom of the fork so it can't move and then bolting a couple of 2x4's together at the top of the fork and then twisting everything back straight.
The reason that I am wanting to do all this work is because the quil stem is 22.0 mm in diameter and the replacement fork will be 22.2mm inside diameter. If everything will work fine with the larger replacement fork then I might be better off just getting a new fork.
If I go the new fork route I am guessing that I will need to cut it to the correct length since it will not be an original part.
This bike is not worth a lot so I don't want to spend much repairing it. If you fellows have any ideas about what I need to do, please let me know.
