Airhead rake & trail

Anyone know what the rake and trail is? I'm guessing that they are all the same, but it is a '71 R75/5 if it makes any difference. Thanks, Jan

Hmmmmm, doesn't anyone know what the fork rake and wheel trail is? I'm thinking about changing the forks and would like to know what the stock geometry is.

Easily available on the net. 27 degrees of rake and 3.5 inches of trail on a BMW R75/5. Hope this helps in your search for handling Nirvana...

Further research shows 28 degees of rake on /6 bikes with the aformentioned 3.5 inches of trail.
