I'm trying to visualise these trees on the bike. Typically the section that clamps the forks faces toward the rear of the bike. So I'm thinking either the clamp section is facing forward or the trees have a negative offset putting the forks behind neck stem. Have I got it wrong or are you doing something funky with the trees?

This motorcycle has trees.

The pinch bolts for triple clamps can be forward or aft. It depends on how they are designed.

Motorcycles don't have trees, fenders, gas tanks, tins, or bags that you put oil in.

Pre chopper movie era (ie pre 1969) in Australia they were called fork yokes. Since 69 the american influence has most of us calling them triple trees or triple clamps. Call them what you are used to and we'll all understand.

Most aussies do still relate best to mudguards, petrol tanks and oil tanks...

Tis fun though to still use 60's/70's terms (US inspired I guess) such as righteous, right on, far out and cool. A great ride was a real blast. Aussies never fell for the US term 'putt' for a ride.
