Yep , and the sad part is I have bought many custom trees of all variences of rake and heavy beefy ones from all steel to aluminum when i had my shop any where from 150.00 to 300.00 I guess its supply and demand.

i wonder why you couldn't use a chopper style custom tree on the goldwing with the rake you want, the stems the same size on the 1500 i think?

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

I am new and I am watching with great Interest.
Here is a copy of my responsr to from my welcome letter.

I am in the process of building a Trike composed of the goldwing frame,a Jaguar Independent rear Suspension and an Engine and Automatic Trans from a Mazda RX-7.

The Rotary engine will be slightly modified and should put about 200 HP to the ground. The Auto Trans will be setup with a push Button shift so I don't have to let go of the bars to shift, and the Jag IRS will be modified so that when I go into a corner the frame will lean into the corner and the Rear Wheeles will also LEAN into the corner.

It's an ambitious project. I understand the Rotary engine and the Jag IRS, BUT I know little about the Frame and Fork and wheel of this particular Bike. AND that is where you nice people come in.

I am going to need help rebuilding the fork, Breaks and front wheel.
I will be needing the handle bar controls.
I have the Master cylinder and the 2 front calipers from a V-45 but I don't think they will work on the GL1500, If any one knows please let me know, Thanks.
I am not planning to narrow the axles as my trike will be much longer.
It's late here and that is all I can think of right now, but I will be watching and listening.

By for now,
olstnikon3
