    Just finished these for a BMW R80.

    Leading legs are becoming popular over here, a more elegant and cost effective soulution than leading links, to solve the problem of heavy steering on sidecars.

    Looks good. How far was the trail reduced? Looks like the axle was moved 2-2 1/4 inch forward.
