Is the rake and trail of the cafe racer created just with the smaller front wheel or is the triple clamp changed from the icon?

It is the same frame and clamp. The rake and trail are achieved by the smaller front wheel/tire, a taller, rounder rear tire (Rosso 2/3) and a roughly 5-6mm spacer welded onto the end of the shock body.

I've been doing research on this and am currently experimenting with adjusting the rake closer to normal levels on my CR.

Aha - I guessed as much.
I rode an icon and found the handling a bit odd.
It seemed a little slow to turn, then transitioned to very quick to turn in.

I’m not sure the CR would need a longer rear but I haven’t ridden one yet -so - what would I know?

thanks for the detailed reply!
