'How to Straighten Bent Cranks Arms'

 

If your chopper has a Bent crank arm chances are it has fallen over at some stage.

This results in the Arm being pushed in towards the frame and catching on the rear frame drop out arm or the chain guard during the revolution of the pedal crank.

The following information shows how to pull the bent arm back into its correct position.

 

 

 

Firstly remove the pedal from the arm to be straightened 

and move the arm into the position shown in the picture below

 

***********************************

 

 

 

Cover the Crank arm with a piece of cloth for protection

 

*********************************

 

 

 

 

 

Now slide a length of tube over the crank arm protected with the cloth

 

*******************************

 

 

 

 

Now grasp the Chopper frame down tube and pull the tube on the crank arm gently away from the frame. This must be done a little bit at a time, removing the tube on the crank arm to inspect the new position of the crank arm. When the crank arm is parallel to the chopper frame the tube on the crank and cloth can be removed and the pedal replaced.

 

*******************************

 

And there you have it! 

Any comments greatly received.
