If there are no cracks or other damage it would be reasonably simple to straighten those forks with a large bench vice and a nice solid length of pipe. The trick is to gently ease the fork legs back into being true again and not to try doing it all in one huge heave. Rag stuffed into the end of the pipe around the fork leg will stop the fork leg from being marked as you gently apply leverage. If a mere woman such as myself can do it I'm sure you won't have any problems
