Raked cups would be your only option without chopping the frame.

Be careful with only using a set of offset trees! You don’t want to put your front wheel into a negative trail position or you find yourself in the ditch.

I was under impression that the cups do actually rake the neck as opposite to the raked trees so the effect on trail is different.

As for a racked bolt on chopper kit- I have heard many positives about these:AME Chopper Kit, chopper kits, 9 deg., 14 deg., and 18 deg. rake, bolt on chopper kits.

Those 18* trees must put the trail WAY into the negative.

Actually blew up the picture and trying to wrap my brain around it, is that a 2 piece lower tree with uniballs or something? Doesn't look like theres any way a bolt runs through upper and lower trees?

No, those kits have bolt on raked necks several degrees +raked trees both in combination increasing TOTAL rake to the indicated numbers. They claim to keep the original trails.
