    used to be quite a few aftermarket fork manufacturers out there. I have been looking all over and really not seeing much available anymore.
    Not looking for a springer front end but I have looked at American suspension? Anyone know of some other quality manufacturers out there?

    Not too many left.

    Just a thought just swap out your trees for normal ones and get new tubes. Keeping your current lowers. I imagine they are 41mm forks?

    They are, I will probably end up keeping the ones i have. Love my triple trees. I am taking them into a local shop on Tuesday to see what options are out there

    When I did my bike a couple of years ago I bought a set of Hog Legs lowers for my bike. The chrome is nice and the have the hidden axle option. I will see if there is any contact info on the box they came in.

    Yea usually those designer trees have the tubes thread into the tree to it doesn't have the top cap. I can see that is a bitch just to change the fluid. Hell if I were you I'd rebuild them while I have them off. I usually try and rebuild mine every 8k
