Front alignment

Anyone with an inkling on how to align front end on 85 Aspy? Hit a dog recently and now it tends to pull to the left.

You can try loosening up the axle pinch bolts, bouncing the front end with and without the front brake applied, and then torquing the axle pinch bolts to factory specs and NO TIGHTER than that. If this doesn't work, you may have a bent fork.
