Default Whats bent?

Hey guys, maby you can be of assistance. My bike was in a front end wipe out, nothing really bad. One of the forks got bent the other looked ok. Anyhow I have put new forks in but the front end is still pushed in. I have cheacked everything over and nothing looks bent. Could it be bent triple clamps? Or maby a bent frame?

Strip down the front cowling and see if there is any buckling to the neck of the frame, it will be very obvious, addtionally, get a long ruler, broom handle, something like that and line it up with the forks, all the way to the TT and see if it is straight. Other than that, try a frame and body shop and have them look at it.
