Just looking back at your original photo of the frame on the table.

Frame is level. Girder touches the table top. Distance of rear axle plates to table top (less distance of girder axle hole from table top) is basically the amount you will need to raise the steering head if you keep the same rake and use a 19" front wheel with a 3.25 tyre on it... Less about an inch of sag in the girder you will get with the weight of the bike on it.

This Thread: P&P girder from a month ago on Chop Cult may be of interest; the original poster needed a new shock as the original by P&P was rusted beyond repair, and interestingly, the spring was interfering with the upper cross link spacer. Measurement information is posted, with options for replacement shocks.

Wow some brilliant information there TriNortcopz! I'll keep that handy when it comes time to go through the front end.

Thank you!
