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.

Yea that doesn't really help.

I saw a video of someone doing that but I don't know that is my problem.

I just don't get why everything is straight but the wheel. Is it because one fork is farther forward than the other causing the wheel to align at an angle?

You have to loosen everything, 4 bolts in the triples, fender, axle nut, then stradle the wheel and pull things straight, then tighten again, starting from the bottom up.

You might have a fork clamped in the triple at a cockeyed angle.
