Mathlete Sweet, thanks for the advice dudes. Yes, I did have an audience - my wife, who jumped over and killed her back picking it up before I was ready to lift. I'll never hear the end of that one...

TheBoy You could have twisted the triple tree also which would offset you front forks. I had my dad back into my bike while it was in the garage and thats what happened to mine. Just losen the bottom tree and hug the front tire with your knees and twist the handel bars until straight again. Just like you would on a huffy as a kid. Atleast thats what i did and im riding staight as an arrow!

fergy Did you have an audience? It always helps me to learn if I have an audience.

It's the handle bar, duct tape the bar and a few wacks with the sledge hammer should take care of it.
