A couple zip ties and my bike tracks perfectly straight. It makes me wonder if some bikes have zip ties when delivered. I post a couple pics of where I put the zip ties when I have a chance.

Thanks for all the help.
Looking forward to the pics or additional explanation as I am not sure how you were able to fix it. I have the same issue. When I put the bike on the center stand and put weight on the back wheel, the front wheel lifts off the ground and immediately swings hard full right.
