Re: Project Bike

Now when it comes to things mechanical, I'm about as useful as a eunuch in a sperm bank. So the bike went to the Wizard of New South Oz. Before doing so, I tried a set of Ape Hangers but the bike would not fit through the gate. This is what we (he) started out with 00x.JPG First to go was the Apes a...

Re: 21" Solid front wheel

Thanks

I've swapped the front solid wheel for a spoke 21" rim, and an 883 Sportster tank. Sold the rear solid wheel for $400.

21" Solid front wheel

I've been trying to find similar to this photo on the internet I do search on "solid" wheel or "cast" front wheel but no luck I've found similar for a 16" rear wheel but no 21" front wheel.
