83 Yamaha YT175 frame

If you look at pic closely, you can see the frame has a slight twist in it. The handle bars have been leveled and now the motor is sitting higher on the right.

When it is sitting on all 3 wheels, the front is then lower on the right.

What I have done is already taken in to shop and heated and pulled the majority of the bend out, however, it doesn't quite straighten.

The down tube in front of motor looks as though it was broken by PO and welded. Should I cut this and attempt to take twist out, or do you think this is driveable the way she is?

The difference is about an 1/8" off level at the top of steering tube with bare frame on table, but looks worse when sitting on all 3.

Just looking for advise, before going any further.

Thanks
