To rough check a frame for correct alignment see Fig. 2E-2. The dimensions shown will provide enough information to determine whether a frame is far enough out of alignment to require a major re-aligning job or replacement.

Straightening a badly bent frame requires special tools and fixtures for holding, bending and gauging. If frame straightening facilities are not available locally, damaged frames may be returned to the factory for repair through any authorized Harley-David-son dealer.

A frame that is badly bent or damaged should be replaced. Do not return them to the factory because it is questionable that they can be repaired economically.
