    Are there any local places that can straighten a motorcycle alloy wheel?


    I have a front wheel that is usable, but not perfect. It has a flat spot and some runout. Are there any good places to take or send the wheel to? preferably within 2 hours from Boston.

    There's www.wheel-repair-specialist.com in Peabody right on rte 1 but I don't know if they do motorcycle wheels.

    I've been meaning to stop by & ask but the last time I did it I got there about 5 minutes after they closed and the guy inside looked at me like I caught him jerking off when I knocked on the window.

    ... so I watched for a bit, then left when he wouldn't come on the door.

    EDIT: TO the door. TO it... damn autocorrect.

    I know Wills Rim Repair in SC??? Has been recommended in the past, but from what I could find the guy who ran it died last year.

    Website for the people that used to be in NH... http://www.mcwheel.com/

    The trick must be to tell him it goes on a really rare ultra-light car.

    Yeah, you cum like never before while questioning everything you thought you knew about yourself. Pretty standard.
