Brian Van Baush alludes to a good point: A NOS fork that is poorly aligned has a good chance of not being brazed well either. Please have it checked out.

I do quite a lot of fork straightening here. In most cases, the straightening process itself does not harm the fork or its finish, unless it reveals some hidden flaw or damage. The process involves centering the blades to the steerer, and as much as possible, leveling them to each other. The dropout faces are then brought to parallel, and the rake checked and corrected. Then repeat the process a few more times to make sure correcting one thing hasn't affected another. The time involved depends on the extent of damage or misalignment, but we usually end up charging between $25 and $50, sometimes more.
