Trendkill rake??

I'm working on building a mini chopper from a 125cc Honda dirtbike motor. I want to put a pretty radical rake on it, but am not exactly sure what sort of angle to go for. I was on the Martinbros. website and saw that Trednkill and Green Discovery have some awsome rakes. If someone could give me any clues as to what angle either the neck, or forks are at, I could probably get everything from there.
I know I am going to be going for a 4" trail, and will definately need to be putting some corrective angle in the trees to account for the rake and bring the trail to a managable amount for somewhat of a decent ride.

Thank you

I would stay 50 deg. or under with 7 deg. trees. Seems to wok for us.

50* or less? Where is the neck rake measured from?
I thought it was measured from the ground out in front of the bike, angling up to the bike. That's probably the harder way of thinking about it. If it's 50* from vertical, that will be quite a bit easier to manage.

Thanks for the help. I'll try and get some progress done and post some pics of my affordable version of a chopper.

I used to work at Easyriders Dallas a few years back and remember you guys having an old purple bobbed pan. Still got it?
You probably won't remember but I had the red chopped 57 pan with skulls on the tank.

You can be safe using a 47 deg. rake in the head tube & using 7deg. in the trees.
