I've tried a few different things to reduce the trail on my 84 Goldwing that I built back in 93. I've finally decided to just build a Leading Link fork for it and be done with it. This is where I'm at with it as of today.

The wheel I used is a 15" x 4.5" wide American Racing Torque Thrust D. It's intended for a rear wheel drive car so there is very little offset to it allowing me to easily make a hub with a disk on each side. Plenty of clearance for the calipers I'm using. I think this is a great wheel to use on the rear and or the front when using a LL or conventional forks. Not a CHS project but hopefully interesting to someone.
