    Ive wanted a project for a while so going to try doing my own trees. Starting with the top tree for invert forks with custom offset. Everything is ready just waiting on the stock.

    Pretty cool fatcaaat. What is your motivation for making the trees?? Are you just interested in the challenge? Do you want different style, or custom spacing?

    The ones i have on one if my bikes are chinesium and 205mm wide and 30mm offset. These will be 190 wide and 55mm offset mimicking the gcraft trees with the ksr forks. My fork legs are fastace dual adjustable so not replacing those

    Yep...it's already designed. I want to see how well my machine handles the top before I try the more complex lower.

    That will be awesome when you get it done! Be cool to even remake the k1 and up lower tree to replace a stock steel tree.

    Pretty sure you can buy this already. The lower trees for the K1+ shocks are readily available in cheap through functional jewelry level quality. I'm making something that cannot be purchased in the form I desire.

    Cut the slots and pinch bolts. Looks to be a winner
