Default Street bob triple tree question??? Please help

Does anyone know of a company that makes the stock width and rake for a street bob. I want to get some but the 49mm mid glide ones that I have found all have 3 degree or 5 degree rake. I thought the street bob should be 0 degree rake??? I bought some on ebay from chassis design company that I like a lot and after putting them on, they dont let the fork lock engage. Can anyone confirm if its true that the rake should be 0 degrees on the street bob and if so, is there anyone out there that makes them?? Thank you for anyones help.

Are you sure you have not been looking at Wide Glide trees? That's the only one I know of that has any rake , all the other 49MM Dyna models including the Fat Bob have zero rake.

I saw the wide glide trees, all the triple trees that I have seen have had the 3 and 5 degree rake on them for some reason.

I did look up the loner industries but it looks like they only make the top triple tree, I'm hoping to find the whole matching triple tree with 0 rake.

Can you not find a stock factory triple tree as a take-off on eBay?
Or is there some reason you don't want a stock one?

Are you referring to the the fork security lock or the steering stop not working? If its the fork lock u would keep what you have. Those trees look great and I can only remember usin my fork lock 3 times in the past 3 years.

Here is my concern....
I have a 2008 Street Bob. It has Dave Mackie 103" megasphere heads and pistons, PM wheels, Pro Clutch, West Coast Tbars, Ness Fairing, Works performance front cartridges, Progressive 970's rear and a bunch of other mods. I have a lot invested in the bike and I know the fork lock wont stop someone from taking the bike, but I would prefer someone couldnt just roll it easily into the back of a truck.

Trying to replace the triple tree set to another set that will allow the fork lock to engage. I have West coast tbars, so I already got rid of the stock triple trees.


Here's the bike...
