    I have noticed on some of the Big Dog Mastiffs (and maybe other models) the top triple Tree's are smooth. There is no bolt on top that would screw into the legs. Why is that?

    Most of them are probably inverted forks

    So with that type of triple tree the forks will have caps screwed into the to of the upper.
    The forks are threaded into the triple tree and held in with a set screw
