Offset front wheel-need help

Put a new set of forks on the fiddy and the front wheel isnt centered in the forks like it should be. If you are standing in front of the bike looking towards the rear, the front wheel is slightly off center to the left by about 1/2''-1''. My spacer is on opposite of the brake drum, forks legs are same length, and everything seems in order and right, except for the wheel is off. The wheel spins true and straight, just off centered. Normally when riding if you let go of the bars the bike stays straight, now it leans left and then starts to pull left. Any suggestions

The gaps between the forks and the tire are different?

And all you changed was the forks?


Sandman may be right. The bearins in the wheel wouldnt have been shifted etc. If the wheel is turned one way or the other, loosen the forks and knock the wheel straight.
