    Is the rear tire a 510 x 16 or a 500 x 16?

    Looking at that pic my eyecrometer says try the cups as there's enough extra rake to work with.

    I know the rockers should be kinda level but could you extend the front fork aliitle?

    What I meant to say was extend the front leg aliittle. I am thinking whack the front leg off about a inch and a half from the spring perch casting . Cut it at an angle so it matched the rear fork leg sleeve. Solid or thick wall tubing plug weld and braze. Cut the bottom off the front leg (maybe another angle or straight like a VL) drill hole plug weld and braze. Spacer and all thread to keep aligned. If it is a stock front fork will have to flatten the round stock to fit the pockets. Maybe buy a already over repop front fork leg?

    Installed the head cups. Bike is noticeable higher. Have much more space leaning the bike left or right.

    It looks nice but it's not that noticeable...... Glad you have a little more ground clearance......

    Agree, not that noticeable on the picture. But although there has’nt changed much it feels much better.

    Haven’t ridden yet.

    For what it's worth... you could have me draw it up and test the specifics for ya... and I'd be able to tell you, and show you, the end result (and rake/trail numbers data wise).

    PS - for someone a while back, 3 degree raked cups run backwards would increase trail (distance from centerline of axle to the intersection of the head axis meeting the ground). Still needs to be carefully considered. But yea.
