Hi Guys,

We currently offer a billet top tree for the gsxr fork conversion. What do you guys think about these for stock CB forks?

Would you offer them as custom pieces for those with non-standard cb's?  I have a 175 but would love one eventually.  Or would you stick with the 500, 550 and 750 and such?

If you know the fork offset I could tell you if one of the models I have work. I usually give a good discount for folks who lend me part to use for design.

Personally I love the retro GSXR top, as I put the front end on my SR500 project.  Only thing I'd be looking for is some way to mount risers.

What does the underside look like?  Would want to see if there's enough meat for me to just drill a hole and bolt on risers or if I'd need to back it with more material first.


"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

I think all the CL/CB175s have the bolt thru style triple tops instead of the pinch for 31mm tubes. I have a 71' CL and a 73' CB and believe both have the same triple top. Could totally be wrong though...



Your product looks superb! I'd be happy to offer up any of my tops for you to use for demo. I have the two listed above and a 69' CB 350 (bolt thru) and a 73' CB 350 (Pinch). I could live without them for a few days.

I also agree with Tim. Your top, risers, and a set of superbike bars would look clean has hell!

You can flip them.

I thought it was pretty cool. It's neat to see stuff on others motorcycles.

Perfect timing for this question and something I have been thinking about since I saw your clamp on Facebook.

My question was riser mounts as well. So will you be offering the clamp predrilled for your risers?
