Re: bent handlebar?
I purchased wrecked LT. It had been falling down to left side. Mainly plastic damages. And all plastics were removed when I got it.
When I was installing tupperware, I found out that handlebar was bent. Not much, but I could not install plastic cover to leftside well.
There is no way to adjust handlebar in bike itself. If you try to do any tricks, you will get problems with plastic parts in some another place. They won't fit anymore perfectly.
So Utopian, if your handlebar is bent so much, then best choise is to buy another one. There are always some used ones also in eBay. What I did? I took my handlebar off, pressed it a littlebit with hydraulic jack from that point where it was bent and it straightened into right position. It is made of steel tube, so it is possible to adjust, if right tools are available.
