New member, old biker, looking for a front fork 'repair' resource.


I recently moved, and somehow, the front fork of my 1985 Fisher Competition got bent out of true. There are no outward signs of trauma, the paint is intact, but the dropouts are not aligned and one fork is visually about 1 inch 'behind' the other.

The frame is 531, but the fork has no designation on it.

I am located in Chico, California, which is about 90 miles north of Sacramento.

I would like to find a resource to repair the fork and was hoping someone here may know a trustworthy repair facility, if this is something that can be repaired.

If repair is not an option, are there any know 'replicators' of a front fork from that era?

Thanks for any help, I am feeling like I lost a family member.
