Would hammering that shit back in its place work?

you could try to heat it up realllyyy hot and bend it back but I don't recommend that cause that weakens it further and would just bend back

I know people who have just bent it back without heat & it bent back after 1-2 days.

I wouldnt try using heat to bend it, that messes with the integrity of the metal and thats sketch. Maybe put the dropouts in a vice and clamp that ish make them as straight as possible. But id say the best idea is to get new forks hahaha

I'd say new axle but whatever. If it's your forks (probaly is) bend that shit inwards with a clamp. Worst case scenario, put your front wheel in the dropouts and vice/smash/bend the dropouts so they hold your hub.

Oh they're not Sundays? Well then no. I was wondering why Sunday forks would do that and I know that they aren't sunday forks.

wouldn't use heat. I used to use a long handled crescent wrench adjusted to the width of the dropout. Carefully look at the angle you'll need to bend and give it some gentle, firm/consistent pulls.

^ultimately, not much life in your fork after this.

Just ride till shit is completely messed up.
If it rides fine there's no need to change it.
Unless you have a lot of cash to spend.
