After a few false starts with wrong parts shipped the new front end is on the Harley and now the bikes down off the work table. I'm pleased with the results, the reproduction adjustable trees from J&P Cycle have provided 5 degrees of additional rake going from 28 to 33 degrees and decreasing trail from 4.5 to 1.5 inches. 3 inch over stock fork tubes from Forking by Frank restored the bike back to level and now it's ready to start the sidecar install once my chassis and body get here. Thing is I want to take the bike for a test ride to see how the suspension works with the pre load and oil level I have chosen but the short trail number has me concerned. It seems to me that more than a few of you out there have taken your bikes with LL or raked tree front ends and have ridden them to the repair shop or the like solo with the car taken off. Just how squirrelly was it. It seems that at relatively slow speeds, 50 mph and under shouldn't be a problem. I'm looking for input here before I take it out this Saturday morning for a shake down cruise.
