Having a Nightster, and knowing the back-end is rough, making the front-end rough might shut down an organ or two. Nice!

Looks good man, go for it if that's what you want to do! I love the Nightster's ride too... very involved and lots of feedback. But I also would miss my turning radius if I had a chopper front-end. To each his own! It'll look killer though!

You have to be careful here. If it is a bolt on kit then all the rake is in the trees. Usually raked trees are used to correct rake/trail problems with forks that are raked at the neck.

You can create some inherint instability by throwing a bunch of rake in the trees.
