U got two is the frame - which is set and cant be changed. the other is in the trees. So - to answer your question, u are going to have to purchase aftermarket trees with the rake u want.

I'm just getting started with gardening. What basic tools should i buy?

Basic set of good quality hand tools. Two shovels. One could have a narrow one with a ruler if you want to measure depth. I use a mallet a lot to pound stakes and fence posts. And a broader one for everything else. The fork is one I rarely use. That's it. There are a lot of hand tools but that is all I use. Other tools: spade, standard rake, 18 inch rake, manual tiller, pitch fork.

Bikes too low

Your bike has had major changes to the geometry. You already know this and are probably very careful when riding it as a result. I am presuming you are not able to ask your dad for advice on this matter now. I am sorry for this. He must have been a very cool dad.

I dont think I would make any structural changes to your dads design unless you could revert to an earlier version by changing the fork. I would consider different tires, however.

Good luck with your project.

1984 had 32 degree rake instead of 29. one model had 2 inch over fork tubes. I added extra 6 degree rake (tripletree) and 6 inch over forks. still have the old clamp and fork tubes and would like to know...

You didn't say which model bike had the 32° rake with the 2" over fork tubes. This is what my book tells me for all the 41mm fork tubes:

1949-early 77 FL, FLH Fork tubes - Part #45950-48 length 20"

Late 77- 84 FLH, 1980-83 FLT, FLHT - Part # 45825-77A length 20 1/2"

1980-83 FXWG, FXD, Part # 45417-80 lenght 24 7/8"

This is all the information that I have. Hope it helps.

I have a yamaha xs 1100 shaft drivin want to strech it can i do that what do i need to do?

There are kits available in Europe that install a lower triple clamp with a different rake angle from the stock forks. I have seen them on cycles before but do not know the name of the company. If there is one that is designed to bolt on to your bike , that would be the easiest way to stretch your frame with out structural weakness being a factor. Start with the article at roadstar clinic :
