This is what I'm working on; need help in finding out the rake is on the front-end. I plan to go to a stock front-end, but I might use the current triple tree, stock leg sliders, but I'm think of using shorter forks. What do you guys think the rake is and what size of forks should I use.

hard to tell from that pic but it looks like a stock frame with raked trees. i would find a stock set of tripple trees and get the bike to set where you want it then do some measuring.

Yes, I guess a stock frame & rake with a set of those early Allied "Ten-Ten" kits, they had 10° rake built into them...

They called it "Ten-Ten" because the idea was to use 10" over tubes with 10° rake..(they said with those trees 8" over tubes with will keep your bike level, 10"-over will raise your bike 2" , and 12"-over will raise it 4"..and "your wheelbase was lengthened by 13" approx"...man I love those days..:D

The frame is stock, the tripple trees are raked and does bring the bike up a few inches. I want to lower the bike, but not sure of what size of forks to use with this tripple tree.


The lower legs are stock Triumph.

I'm going to fix that seat when I put on that hardtail.
