    Could some photo their Colnago Piu Forks with a straight edge?

    I recently took a flyer on a sight-unseen steel Colnago which seems to show signs of a crash. (the whole thread is over in Bike Mechanics.) I believe it is a Piu model.

    I took these pictures of the forks. But I don't know if the gap showing under the ruler edge means the fork is bent or if this is the normal shape.

    Could someone else with a good condition Piu maybe take the same shots of their forks so we/I can compare?

    many thanks

    Peter

    Front of the fork is supposed to be absolutely straight; the taper should be from the rear only:

    (Not my pic, not my bike):


    Nothing that some cold setting can't fix.

    I can't find the thread in Mechanics. A link would be appreciated. EDIT, found it: http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...=#post10969025

    P.S.: The paint cracks are evidence enough. Bent.
