FXR Drop Trees, Dynamoto and choice of Touring triple tree options A few months ago we featured Cazadero, California based Kraus Motor Co’s 49mm Sport Performance triple trees, but that was just one design from a selection of application options that the company offers. Kraus says that its billet triple trees are at “the heart of our performance suspension system. They are strong, lightweight and precision machined from aluminum billet in California.” Described as being “the foundation of a strong, properly engineered front end,” their offer includes several styles of triple trees for OEM FXD and FLH/FLT fitments - available as part of their complete, turnkey performance packages, or individually.
