You can straighten just about any kink in a rotor. They actually make special park tools for it but you can do the same thing with wide duck bill vise gripsI forgot to get a pic of my recreated brace before we slapped it on. But, if you look at the brace I bought you can see that I just essentially traced the pattern, then I kicked one of the legs out to reach the seat tube. Cut it out, smoothed it out, drilled out the holes, then tacked it all in place and checked the fit. It allows adjustment of the caliper, so it's set. For those of you wondering, I cannot weld. But I run a trailer manufacturing plant, so I have lots of welders working for me. Anyway, while playing around with it, the disc has a very slight wobble in one spot. Not a big deal, but I want to close the distance of the pads so that the caliper will engage the disc sooner, with less pull. So I may try to straighten that out. If not, there will just be more play. I'm just concerned with how it will work for the drag brake.
