is my front wheel missing something!

So I finally noticed my un-aligned front wheel. I always noticed a slight angle on my bars but I assumed the tank wasn't on straight or something. Between the right fork and wheel is there supposed to be a collar or spacer? I just have the axle rod to a rubber bushing in the wheel.

I took everything off at work and I could swear something is missing to make the forks twist or something. Nothing has any marks of a bend and no welds have stress cracks or rust so what's up here. I'll post pics later.

Probably doesn't apply here, matter of fact I'd be surprised if it did, but with my dirt bikes it wasn't uncommon to be all messed up in the front after hopping off a bike and letting it fend for itself while you rolled.

We'd simply grip the front wheel between our knees and pull the whole thing back straight by the bars.
