Your frame *might* be able to be cold-set by a competent frame builder with proper jig. If you headtube is out of alignment, that means that your top and downtube are likely bent/possibly compromised. Take it to a pro.

depending on your frame's headtube being OK, all-city makes a nice straight blade 1 1/8th fork. not super expensive, not exactly cheap....

Leader's straight blade steel fork is nice too (but a little on the beefy side). It's the exact same fork found on '07-'10 Schwinn Madisons.
