Help again. Rear wheel bent too.

Hit a pothole last week and bent the front wheel rim on my R60/7. Thanks to this forum, I found a new one, which is being shipped to me even now.

Alas, I now see the rear wheel rim also is bent. This is the wheel with the drum brake. Anybody have one?

I wonder what other damage i have yet to discover.

Oh that sucks!!!! Since you didn't notice before, maybe it can be knocked back into shape?

I banged up my front wheel a while back and a local motorcycle shop referred me to a local wheel shop where the guy fixed my bent rim in about 20 minutes. For about $100, including paint. My tire was losing air - good as new now. I betcha there's a shop near you can straighten out a bent wheel if it ain't grossly bent.

I straighten wheels, but that's a long ways to ship it. Woody's in Colorado could probably fix it for you as well.
