Street Tracker Front End

Here's some seek peek pics of the front end of a street tracker I'm building up. T100 legs with billet triple trees, front number plate/headlight and fork brace.

The headlight is not a HID unit, but rather uses a traditional H4 bulb. All the bracketry is billet anodized aluminum and very-very stout.

Mike,

That's trick. I'll be watching this space.

So will the triple trees be offered through your not-to-be-disclosed store?

I'm thinking a single Acewell guage tucked-in nicely behind the number plate will look trick. And dropping the whole plate mount a smidge to fully conceal the rect/reg (and reason for the vent holes). I just mocked it up for the pics.

Risers will take some thinking. You'll notice that the top tree is not drilled and tapered for the stock rubber bush mounting, but merely two 8mm holes. Someone correct me if I'm wrong at this late hour, but I think the stock riser bolts are 10mm. I can envision drilling (if needed) the top clamp and using whatever stock risers you have, sans the rubber bushing and such. Direct fit in other words. I have some 7/8" risers and K&N flattrack bars.

Ideally I want to run 1"-to-7/8" tapered dirt bike bars and just a Magura throttle, Brembo m/c and a clutch lever. No switchgear. Which means I need a custom guage bezzel with micro switches and buttons.
