Went over and borrowed the reproduction Triumph 3HW girders this morning to offer up. It turns out the stem is not long enough for the headstock, so it's a non-starter without re-engineering. If anybody wants any dimensions or detailed pics drop me a line, they will be here for the next week.
Time for another look at the teles then, the two inch extensions were removed from the top of the legs and the yokes dropped. The legs were clamped on the bottom yoke only to take a look see. Amazing the difference two inches here and there can make, pulling the front down loses the chopper/trail bike look. It will mean getting two shorter adaptor slugs made up or the original modified but this could be the way forward. Sorry Steve.
Fitted the alloy front plates to make sure all was good there, popped straight on and look the part, so a bit of a result there then.
