Awesome bro!!
Thank you Sparky.

I’ve had the forks apart on this bike for a few days and I’m trying to decide how I’m going to take the rake out of the triple trees without making brand new ones.

What I’m probably going to do is use two of the top triple trees which have identical offsets, or use two bottoms.

Using the larger bottoms would mean less positive trail than using the tops & I’m trying to get some positive trail.

That means I have to cut the steering tube off of one and weld it on to another

I finally got back to this build a little bit.

I have studied these triple trees quite a bit and decided that I really don’t wanna work with them at all.

Each piece is slightly bent and I don’t have a top tree for the third bottom.

I have three sets of legs, so the best solution might be to make one top from scratch & make it the same as that bottom tree and I won’t put any rake in the assembly.

Or, I should say that I will take the rake out of the bottom.

With a welder and a grinder, so much is possible.
