So I bought this bike from a guy that got into a front end collision with it. The entire head unit was destroyed. The one problem that I am stuck on is the front end of the frame. It was bent in the accident. How would you go at making it straight again?

That's the frame? I would not try and straighten it. Sorry to say thus, but I wouldn't have bought a bike with a frame like that. It's permanently weakened. Maybe someone else can help, I'm not familiar with a way to safely "fix" that.

Buy a straight frame with title (possibly off craigslist or ebay) and swap all known good parts. Good luck!

def not worth trying to straighten that. Call up a local bike salvage yard and have them sell you a frame with a title. or CL. Either way, if you wind up parting out PM me, i need lots of parts ;)
