For real, more info is needed. Steel, Aluminum? slightly bent? A lot bent? Tubes crimped? How did the frame get bent? Will you trade me pizza for repair service?

80’s steel nishiki frame. The three main tubes are not bent as far as I can tell. It appears that the rear section of the frame is bent a few degrees. I have a feeling that the guy who gave it to me wrecked it really hard once? No tube crimping visible to me. And yes, I will gladly trade food for repairs. :)

All the rear tubes? The two small ones coming form the seat are seat stays, the lower two are chain stays.

Which way are they bent?

I’m guessing this probably isn’t a big deal, if the frame really is bent slightly, bending it back into acceptable alignment will not be hard.

PM me if you want me to take a look at it and/or if you want my bike fixin’ resume. After all, I know you make good pizza, you know nothing of my bike skillz.
