Bent Mongoose Frame?

I have an 83 Mongoose frame and dropout spacing is wider than my other frames.  There appears to be a slight bend.  My thought is to stand on it and flex it a bit.  Do I have better options?

The nickel frame is correct so you can see gap.

yup, when a wheel is in it will pull it tight - do both side up in stages - left right left right, this should pull it equal
standing on it might put it out one side hmm

Did the trick, waiting on a set of tires so I never mounted a rim.  Was under $100 on the Bay, chrome cleaned up nice.  Thanks again.
