Just some quick pics, cut the neck jigged it up and fired the tig up. HHI neck kit adds 9 degrees rake +2 inches up and +2 inches out. The billet triple tree is for a trike also adds 9 degrees rake for a whopping 18 degrees puts it at about 44 degrees total! Plus a 2 inch extension for the downtubes.
My buddy sent me these pics. He just had the rims powdercoated and the exhaust painted up. He is runnin a Cole Foster tank, Austin Martin Originals exhaust, A.M.O. fender struts and A.M.O. wheel spacers. I extended his monstercraftsman chain tensioner an inch and fabbed the brake linkage for him.
