Thumbs down Anywhere that will sort a buckled front wheel

Hi all, Yes I've been in hiding, but picked up myself a little (monster) project to keep me out of trouble...

Anyway, on it's safety check (thanks Saltire ) it came up with a buckled front wheel on the 2 page list of essential repairs.. it's the only thing on the list I can't do myself.

I haven't got it up on the paddock stands to see just how buckled it is yet as it's in storage until I get off work, but I can't see anything just looking at it, so could just be minor.

I have phoned five places in the central belt, with all of them saying that they won't touch motorcycle wheels.

Have people got any suggestions before I splash out on a new wheel...

"Why not take advantage of our ride in service...?"

Um, because my wheel is buckled?

That was my thoughts exactly..

Cheers everyone, I'll take a look next weekend and see if there is anything else that needs done with the wheels.
