Ok, first post for me on this forum. Last month I picked up a 99' Vulcan 1500 Classic and have been enjoying the ride, weather permitting. I did a pretty stupid thing and now need some advice on how to correct it. The chrome tubing above the right fork must have been ever so slightly misalligned because there was a smooth, worn spot on the fork about the size of a quarter from the tube rubbing on the metal. In my infinite wisdom I thought that I could use an emory pad to roughen up the spot but it did not do much good. Then I thought maybe I could use the pad on the rest of the forks, right and left and even things out. What a mistake!! It basically looks uneven and where the forks were once a kind of matte finish on the alloy (not sure if they are aluminum) it now has ever so tiny of scratch marks. Who could I go to in order to get the original factory finish back on these forks and what kind of machine would be used?? I imagine that the forks would probably have to come off the bike in order to do this. I would appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.
