Neck Rake Kit For Bagger Big Front Wheel Conversion

Misfit3Misfit2Love it or hate it, many wish to size up their bike front wheel. From cruiser to bagger. In most cases, depending of the taller wheel size you decide, it implies raking your bike neck, a task requiring skills in cutting & welding that should be accomplished by a good professional. But the job is much easier with one of the several neck rake kit options offered by Misfit Baggers.

Their latest release is called the “Short Neck Slip Fit Kit” for Baggers (patent pending.) This weld-on conversion kit allows you to run up to a 30” wheel on Harley-Davidson touring FL frames . Stock trail 1.5” lift 2” out.

If you are skilled with cutting, welding, and familiar with the exact positioning that will be required for installing this neck rake kit it is perfect for you. If not, no problem, ship your bike to their facility to their Harley Neck Rake Service. They will send it back on completion.

By the way, Misfit Baggers is also offering a choice of 30″ wheels. Contact on my behalf Dylan Hoey ayr 877-647-3489 or visit Misfit Baggers to know about all their Neck Rake Kits. .

    Now I know what those old bastards were thinking while they were shaking their heads at us as we we cut up our Knucks and Pans.

    Thats really nice, that you can run a big wheel without having to have the front end of the bike sit way up in the air. I never really cared for the 30″ wheel on a bagger until I saw one with this kit.

    is this really made by Misfit? I got an email from our vendor American Suspension and it’s the exact same kit. What’s with all these “companies” that take other people’s products and try and claim it’s theirs? We have been using HHI and American suspension parts for years raking baggers and putting big wheels on them. Never heard of Misfit

    Have a 26″ on my Harley Bagger. Big enough for me. No complaint.

    Bagger bob Misfit designed the short neck and American suspension is building the triple trees. Vince and I have been working together for many years and we have a patent pending on the product along with many others.

    Compared to raked trees this IS the only way to go, but it’s still like arguing the correct way to add a moustache to the Mona Lisa :( There’s gonna be a helluva lot of hard to sell used baggers on the market in 10 years or so. Sigh, great product, but a horrible fad.

    I would not want to go 100mph on a bike welded without a JIG. This should be done by a pro. I would select the: “send it in option”. Just my 2-cents

    I can honestly say it’s nice to see that Misfit and American did NOT copy anybody else with theirs, and instead of just buying somebody else’s and throwing a couple different detail cuts on it, actually did their own engineering.
    I can agree with Woody on the 10 year comment, but hey…strike while the iron’s hot!
    While you wait for your bagger to sell, you can go back to riding your $60K…now worth $10K Pro Street that you bought 8 years ago :)

    @Supreme Team-good one, got me ☺

  11. 11 Tobby May 20th, 2013 at 1:09 pm

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but I remember seeing these integrated neck conversion kits way back in the early 80’s.

  12. 12 Cam May 20th, 2013 at 4:01 pm

    This looks just like the kit that American suspension offers. Does anyone know if A.S. is making this kit for Misfit Baggers?

  13. 13 Chris Eder May 20th, 2013 at 5:09 pm

    Cam, Misfit Bagger makes the necks and A.S makes the triple trees for our kit.

  14. 14 RUB May 21st, 2013 at 12:46 am

    went on misfit’s site , 45 K to 85 K for a big wheel bagger that will be worth 10 K in 5 yrs ? It’s the chopper craze all over again with out those big named builders cashing in .

    Significant depreciation is part of the price you pay for having the (currently) coolest bikes around. But while your particular trend (Fat wheel choppers/Board track replicas/Big wheel baggers) is hot, you are one of the coolest guys around! Isn’t that why they/we do it? Latest and greatest rocks! And anyway, what motorcycle doesn’t drop in value over time? Just sayin . . .

  16. 16 Josh M May 21st, 2013 at 1:07 pm

    would you be cutting off frame numbers with the neck, and need to re-title?

  17. 17 Chris Eder May 21st, 2013 at 7:14 pm

    Josh M,

    The frame numbers not compromised, the kit does not come in contact with the VIN.

  18. 18 RUB May 22nd, 2013 at 12:45 am

    Doc , there is a very fine line between cool looking and stupid looking . Some don’t seem to care as long as there looking ……………………..that being said , I’m very impressed witht he talent of the builders .

  19. 19 The Supreme Team May 22nd, 2013 at 10:59 am

    Look at it this way…it will cost you $25-30K for a “decent” resto job on a 65 Mustang, and you’ll be lucky to pull $15K for that thing the day you pull it out of the shop.
    Part of the fun of being cool! Compliments aren’t cheap, and the compensation to your ego is priceless. Buy shiny, don’t buy cheap, and most important…BUY AMERICAN!
