    front end still ok??

    My bike got hit in the front while parked. Someone backed into my front wheel; broke a piece of fender off; pushed my bike back about 7 inches and the focker took off as I was no where to be seen. I guess the fender would need to be welded or something. However, I 'm more worried about the front end got tweaked or misalign. It did ride fine afterwards. What do I need to look at to make sure that it's fine. Thanks

    If it rides fine and you can pump the forks without then feeling like they are rough or sticky or anything then it sounds like you got lucky.

    A shop can use a dial indicator and V blocks to check the slider for straightness but it means taking the forks apart. If you have a long straightedge and some imagination on how to compare it to the exposed parts of the slider then you can check it yourself.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
