Got a 77 kz 1000 that I am trying to make into a 70's style digger. Where would one find a spinger or girder to fit the neck? Also anyone have any good dimensions for frame rake. Thinking around 45 degrees rake with 12" over forks. thanks

Definitely a girder front end. Lighter and less trail movement through the suspension travel. You can have one made for less than $500. Check with local machine shops and welders, especially young machinists looking for a challenge. If retaining your stock neck change over to tapered bearings. You may be able to reuse your stem if welded properly to your new trees.
Check out http://www.chopperhandbook.com/neatstuff/index.html and read the rake/trail articles as well as springer/girder tech pages.
