A picture would be helpful so that we can see exactly what's going on.. But my thoughts are that you're going to have to get new triple trees or handlebars..

your tubes moved in the trees just loosen the top clamps then straddle the front tire grag the bars and twist in place tighten the clamps and take for test ride.
