Classic & Vintage - The way the front wheel sits in the fork
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

I used to ride an '88 Pinarello, and I'm now riding a '92 Eddy Merckx. On both of them I found that I had to nudge the front wheel a little to one side to get it centered before closing the QR. On the Merckx its maybe 1/16". Has this also been your experience? Or is the fork bent somehow?

What happens if you flip the front wheel around?
If the wheel is properly dished then the fork/drop-outs are not aligned well. Pretty typical even for "handmade" race bikes.
A really good bike shop with the proper tools can fix it, or if you have a local frame builder they can as well.
