Just trying to think ahead a bit here. I've collected many 45" parts over the years, so much so that I'm more or less in a position to build what I've always wanted to build, a 45" flat track/bobber style bike. I have a frame, engine,gearbox, clutch etc etc. The one thing I don't have is springer legs, I have springs and rockers etc ,I'm not sold on buying from India, I don't know what the quality would be like. So I wanted to find out if anyone has experience of fitting a telescopic front end?, and if so from what bike?. I'm concerned also about the rake/trail, I read the 45 stock frame is quite shallow 23 degrees , I think that may be too little for road riding, so am I committed to springing for springers?.
No rush because I'm still in the middle of my long time owned stock WLC tidy up
