Old Skool Extra Narrow Triple Tree

After the fat tires excess, the custom motorcycle industry made a 180-degree towards building from the ground up with skinny tires. Front ends went from wide glide, to mid to narrow and now to extra-narrow glide. It will be difficult for anyone to propose a narrower triple tree than this one, 1,25″ (31,75mm) narrower than the stock narrow glides. It is designed with 5,75″ (146mm) wide center to center tube holes and accepts 39 mm tubes.

The 1st style is designed to be used with risers with center to center distance between risers being 1″ (25.4 mm) narrower than stock distance. The second style is designed without risers’ hole, for example for race style clip-on handlebars (ribbed fork tube caps in raw steel with M34X1,5 thread are required and available.)

Both  Extra Narrow Triple Tree styles come with an external fork stop system and are already drilled for internal fork stop system. They come with complete hardware and steering stem to fit all frames with 1″ (25,4mm) bearing. In billet aluminum with 2 finishes, polish or satin. Kustom Tech Italy.

    Thanks to the extra-narrow triple tree, when handcuffed you can still ride your bike. LOL.

    And just what do these do for handling and stability?

    For all those narrow minded builders?

    What a great idea.

    I vividly remember flopping a stretched out Pig with this setup 40 years ago. I think everyone should have the riding experience at least once before they Die!

    What saved me wasn’t riding experience but just pure luck. Have at it. All you have to do is look and seek out little gravel on a turn and game is on.

    So how long until someone does a tree with 1 shock in the center and the riser holes flank it?

    Custom Cycle Engineering of Oceanside Ca. has made those for years.

    Lonny. You are wrong. Cycle Eng. does a narrow glide, like hundreds of other companies. It’s 6 5/8” centerline. The one Cyril talks about is much narrower. Check fact before commenting.

    Hey Nobody, soon I hope!

    @ Rick Fairless..

    Bonus points if who ever does make a mono shock front, makes the whole bike nearly as wide as the tyres?

    Not something I’d ride, but would be wicked looking

    Custom Cycle Engineering (@Lonny & Brett?) yes, has been making one for years…it to is hella-cool, narrow AND MADE IN THE USA BY AMERICANS FOR AMERICANS! Support American made products, or there will be no America. are we gona split hairs about an inch or some insignificant amount that this one is narrower? whatever….gotta go…and RIDE.

    Buy the best product for your money. That’s it. Protectionism doesn’t work. There is international competition and competition creates innovation.

  13. 13 Rick Fairless Aug 30th, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Hey Nobody…I’m ready & I would & will ride it!

    these things look like turds.

    Mullins Chain Drive has this shit locked down. Narrower, better looking, made in the USA.

    I’ll pay five bucks to see Rick ride it. I’ll drop by Strokers.
    He has to do a burnout first.
