    I am rebuilding my sons beloved 2002 XL1200C that he lost his life on running into a car as a tribute to him. I am afraid that the frame is bent. Can anyone help with any recommendations on companies that straighten frames or should I replace it. I would rather use the original. I have found some companies that say they can do the work, but I would like to hear from someone who has used of or heard good things about the company. Thanks for your help.

    Ron, your a good father. First, I would try to find the original spec's on the frame first. Depending on what's bent, you may be able to cut and weld in a new section of frame. I can understand why you would like to keep it original as possible. I'm from CT. We have allot of good welders around here. Keep asking, keep looking, I know you will find someone that can help you. Good luck, may your son rest in peace. HOLLYWOOD.......................
