Below are an assortment of Park Tools used back when steel was the deal and frame and fork damage could be repaired with some leverage and a gauge. Most of these devices are no longer offered by Park. Anyone want to guess the retail price for a Brooks Pro saddle in 1986?
I recently used a couple of these tools to resurrect an iconic 80s touring bike. Back in July, I purchased a 1982 Trek 728 frame on eBay. The paint was great and the seller gave me a discount on the shipping because, despite its collectibility, he had been horribly unsuccessful selling the bike. He had listed it several times with a Buy-It Now price of $50.
One look at the frame and you can see why he was having difficultly unloading it. The fork and headtube had been re-contoured with the help of an oak tree. Having access to most of the steel-bending tools featured in that 1985 Cycl-ology catalog, I thought this would be an interesting challenge.
As you can see from the before and after pictures, the effort was successful. Now I've got another project for this winter.
