Well... I like it... a lot.

How did you go about it and how much did it cost.
THANKS!

Purchased Covington Cycles 3 degree raked triple trees. I know how everyone dislikes raked trees but the 3 degrees still keeps the trail in check.

Bike is actually more stable at speeds over 55 now.

I like the subtle look of it, very classy bike...How much is that lowered? About 1 1/2 2 inches it looks anyway....

very nice... Makes the bike look stretched out, sleek etc, yet suttle to the casual cager/onlooker.

That is very sweet! I was looking into using the 3* trees on my Heritage. After discussing the mods I wanted to do to it, the wife told me I should just buy another bike and give her the Heritage! Mean wife!! I now have a Night Train that I'm working on. After seeing your bike, I might still do the trees on the Heritage.

looks cool

The rake job looks real nice. By the way...for some reason your bikes factory paint is one of my all time favorites. Sweet!

The rake does look nice! Must be a sign. I was wondering how trees might work out on my bike earlier today. Good job!

Thanks everyone for the compliments!

Cost of the trees were $599.00. If you go to Covington's website they are still listed at 699.00 so I suggest calling them if you plan to order.

My mean wife must be related to yours. She complained about riding as a passenger with me so I had to get her a sportster..... NICE!

Here is her Sporty.
