feel free to shoot me an email if you ever are looking for advice on the market, pricing, what distributors want, etc etc... I've made every mistake possible at least once... if I'm doing well, not more than once, haha!

Thanks LTgeorge, Roc City I really appreciate that.  Would anyone be interested in a full triple tree kit for a gsxr front end swap? The kit would include upper and lower triple with stem.

Ideally the kit would include everything needed to do the swap, minus the fork tubes, brakes and wheel.  Maybe make the top triple with handlebar clamps for those of us who prefer club mans to clip ons?

On most bikes its usally only a bearing swap,I'm in the process now of building a top triple for a customer with risers for mx style bars. So probably just the top triple.

I'd be interested in a double gauge mount for 2.5" gauges  ;D

would the lower triple already have the appropriate size stem for a CB?

Mearly a suggestion... but it comes from personal experiance. Even though the aftermarket for early SOHC CB750's parts is over run with vendors, the 79-83 DOHC CB750 custom parts suppliers are scarce.
 Cycle-X has some stuff although very limited...  and Benji's shit is WAY overpriced with reportedly shoddy workmanship and customer service. Other than those two it seems it is an open market for the taking. And those bikes were the staple of the Honda line-up in those years, turning out tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of C, K, and F models. They seem to be rapidly gaining popularity in our circles.
I may be a bit bias, but knowing other owners here have the same concern. I belive custom seats, knee-dent or CR style tanks, upper triples, and side covers would sell like hot-cakes.
Pick up a DOHC frame and start bangin out some parts that fit. Just a thought.
