Hi it looks great and will be better when you get the bend out .First thing is to get a piece of wood cut to the right size and place one end on the seat just under the handle bar cover and the other end just near the pod forcing the front up a little and keep it there as long as you can . .Next thing is to test it out making sure that the back whees are of the ground . Let us know what happens when you get the battery connected up Bye for now Chas

I used the wood to straighten it and then I used a heat gun to stress relive it at the point Of bend The bend is now out and I keep the wood In place when not in use to prevent it happening Again You can try it with just the wood and see how it Goes

Hi A piece of wood and a nice sunny day, leave it overnight if not repeat and you could try a little heat off an hair dryer . Be careful if using a heat gun, this is ideal but don't get too close for too long and melt it.
