When I had a "heavy" tip over some 15 years ago I gave up trying to straighten the front frame off the bike... After refitting the frame and bracing the bike (against a wall) I was able to pummel and lever the frame into almost perfect line. I rigged up a straight line of string up the centre line of the bike and then measured as best I could to get symmetry.
