    I think what you need would be hi rise offset dogbone risers.
    They smooth out vibrations in the bars too.

    Set of 8" risers will do it and make you feel like you are in the bike more rather than riding on top of it.Click image for larger version.

    It looks like the top of the riser is about 1/2 inch from the top of the tank. But where the riser goes into the top tripletree its about 2 or 3 inches from the bottom of the tank. What about dropping the handlebar riser clamp (dogbone) down to right on the deck of the triple tree. Pull a riser out turn it upsidedown turn the fork and see if the clamp part now has enough room to miss the bottom of the gas tank instead of the top? If the riser is threaded cut it off about 4 inches and thread it right to the bottom of the clamp. Think of it as welding (which you could do also) the handlebar mount of the riser (the clamping part) directly on top of the tripletree. Just a thought.

    Whoa... I know you're frustrated but first off you need to own this mistake because as Tattooo says you assemble completely before paint. You may have some reason for doing it backwards but it's not the right way.
    Second, there are only so many options at this point and you may have to sacrifice "looks" and compromise. Figure out all your options and pick one. I would probably sell the tank if you can't find a risers solution.
    Would another option be to raise the front of the tank?
    There is always a $olution.

    You need the wider triple trees and risers . Your best looking and cheapest way out of it. I know you want the skinny look but anything else will look like an afterthought and a compromise .

    Sell that front end and get an offset one.

    Well actually it will reduce the tendency to speed wobble with 16" front tires on old frames. Won't affect the handle bar location though.

    ugh i have the same issue with my current set up. low biltwell risers on a springer combined with fatbobs and a panhead style speedo cover. The risers hit the cover at full lock so its a pain in the ass. I am converting to dog ears and flanders risers to sort it out when cash becomes available

    The flanders top triple trees have the ear part that the dogbone/risers bolt to forward of the center line of the triple tree. Some aftermarket style trees have the stub sticking out inline with the rear leg not forward like the flanders. bewarel

    Very good point. Since those are the only ones I have I don't think about the later aftermarket versions being inline with the rear legs.
    Nice catch.

    What about a riser adapter plate?
    It bolts on the top of the fork legs, can be installed to put the risers closer to you, or turned around to put them further away from you.
    Gives you the 3 1/2" standard mount for risers.
    Here is a link to TCBros Choppers and what they have.

    What about fabbing up a top tree with the holes to mount the risers offset forward a bit. Just a thought, don't know if it would work for OP

    Well, maybe I’m using the wrong terms or am misunderstanding what is being said.

    When I look down from the top at the neck tube/stem (the 2nd pic in OP), the fork legs and dogbone mounts are horizontally in line with the neck.

    When I view my springer (old Denver’s) from the same position, the tree is essentially in a “V” pattern, pushing everything forward of the neck.

    Now I understand that it may be apples to oranges since my front end doesn’t utilize dogbones but instead has the handlebars slide directly into the rear legs but I have the clearance I need whereas I would not with an in-line.

    So, Tattoo, help me “learn something.”

    Ok your logic is correct but when you said buy an offset springer that's what I was responding to........

    The top tree is exactly the same on an inline or an offset the hole where the stem comes through is just offset about a 1/4"...... So buying a different front end won't help him just lighten his pocket book........

    What your thinking is what the top tree on my Pan that I posted a pic of previously looks like........

    Hopes this helps if not ask again and I will try again differently.......

    Perfect explanation. My error was using the term “offset” to describe my springer. Thanks.
