As the name says I am new to this (British Bikes). So I am thinking of changing the front end on my 64ish triumph chop. It has a little more rake than I want, so I am considering cutting off the neck and rewelding. My existing front forks will be to long, (and need a rebuild) as well as new neck bearings and probably wheel bearings, brakes etc. I foudn a deal on a newer sportster front end, and was considering changing to it, wheel, forks, trees etc. I know lowbrow sells a bearing conversion kit to do the swap. Has anyone done this, anything I need to look out for? Any help would be great, thanks

my dads putting a harley girder on his '68 T120R and all he had to do was buy the bearing kit, the sportster forks should be the same fit so long as harley hasn't changed there neck size
P.S. where in ontario do you live? maybe i've seen you around

I did it. Went easy, but thinking back, I thing I had to shorten the stem by like 3/8. It was a while back so I'm not positive.

I put an 39mm narrowglide on my '70 frame. I just got the Timkin bearings from a bearing supply place and I don't remember having to put a spacer in.
