Hello custom fighters.

I came across this forum via a google search. I was reading this thread about triple tree/ CAD designs.

http://www.customfighters.com/forums/showthread.php?p=838720

I am looking to find someone who would be willing to help me design some triple trees for my next project. My girlfriends father is a machinist and can make them for me I just need to be able to get him a blueprint or file. I am more than willing to compensate the person for their time.

The bike/frame:

1984 bmw r80rt

I'd like to keep the stock handlebar risers and still have a small cutout to see the speedo (if needed)

The front end:

2004/05 gsxr 600/750 Showa usd forks
gold/chrome legs, gold calipers
300mm rotors
850 springs
30mm offset, 54mm lower clamp
Right offset ignition top clamp, 25mm bore

Calipers:

Custom hub:

Cognito motors gsxr spoke conversion hub

21" Rim barrel and custom stainless swaged spokes.

All balls also sells conversion bearings so that I can use the gsxr triples. My concern is that the offset and trail will be off. Thus making the bike handle like crap. I have looked into the math myself but get confused real fast!

Help!
Tom

At this point I can get the entire front end together and working using the gsxr triples. Does anyone have any experience with figuring out what the correct offset/ trail would be? I'm looking for frame specs for the 84 r80rt frame.
