HELP: I need a Source for a Custom Triple Tree.

There's no way I'm gonna fit the Brutale headlight on my bike, without having a custom triple made.

Anyone know any machine shops that can fab one up for me?

Nope. It's the shape and height of the Brutale headlight, and the 919 triple has the ignition switch at the top of the triple. I need to move the headlight up, and back, and the housing for the ignition is in the way.

I'll need a triple tree that has a concave shape up front, to make room for the top of the headlight. I'll then have to relocate the ignition switch, which for some reason is huge! Why does an ignition switch need to be so big, anyway?

I'll mount the headlight to the forks, most likely.

I think the stock Brutale headlight brackets mount to the triple, so maybe I can go that route when I get these custom triples made.

Does the top and bottom triple need to be changed or just the top where the ignition is?
