straightening a frame?

theres a BMW /2 that I'm interested in for a conversion bike (putting a 1970's R90 engine in) but the frame is bent. I have seen it, but I don't have any pictures. If you look along the spine of the frame you can see the bend. Goner, fixing too difficult not worth it, can be done, or other?

Anything can be done with enough money...

That said, look for a straight frame with a title and get it powdercoated and buy yourself an expensive sixer with the money you save not buying the bent frame.

Can be done without spending a fortune.

thanks y'all. It's not something I'm likely to take on, but its an opportunity, so I thought I'd at least figure out what was involved.
