I had the same problem, my 71 Super Sport had a nasty pull to the left. My mechanic said it was bent slightly to one side. You could see the steerer tube was not perfectly aligned with the rest of the fork, although the blades themselves were fine. He put it in a vice and realigned it with a steel bar and some judicious pushing. Took only a few minutes, cost only a few dollars, and it rides great now.

You need to befriend a good mechanic.
