Radiator repair

Ok my 2nd post today.
I have started sorting out the cooling issues on my 2007 MV F4 today. I have come across this ( see photos ) can anyone recommend a good radiator refurb company in the UK that could repair/replace the thin aluminium vanes/fins.
Thanks in advance.

Ugly....that looks like damage from high pressure washing.

Can't help with UK based recommendations, but shipping to Mylers in the USA may be worth it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I have one that has been repaired. It isn't the best looking repair but it doesn't leak. you can have it for the price of shipping if you want it

That is very nice of George. Looks better than the OP's radiator. Looks like some serious corrosion. Do you live near the beach?

Thanks for the offer number2, but I will find a repair specialist in UK.
MV Arthur, I bought the bike from someone who lives in Fife Scotland. I think it's near the coast and the roads are heavily salted in cold conditions, hence the corrosion.

High speed on a wet gravelly road......shot peens the fins down on the lower part of the radiator
I packed my Aprilia RSVR radiator about full at low speed.....took hours to get the gravel out
It was the size of bird seed ......royal PITA
