Easy usually the businesses they buy were already making money. The problems are when they start doing their changes and screw up the already working formula, by say let's go cheapest in materials as we can and things start failing in the field. That's just one example. People used to buy reed bits and they were great, they screwed them up, a bunch of stuff failed and they did a great job of ruining the reputation that was built.

How long is each piece?

After pulling my sidecar off the bike I realized just how worn out the forks are due to the extra stress, so I'm going to build a leading link front end. This will be my first structural fabrication.

Maybe 36"? I still need to work out the design, but haven't measured the bike to get final measurements yet.

As soon as I get a design finalized I'll start a thread and send you guys a PM.
