I totally forgot about that. I believe I also used a 9/16 spacer.

My very first sticky! You guys rock!

Ok, now, I don't plan on going with the Harley front, because I don't want to mess with the speedo crap. Doing the 21" VTX rim with the stock 54 spoke rim, what would be good for the rear? Would a 60 spoke look fine?

I found an 18" x 5.5" for $191 shipped - http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/CHROM...ht_7 45wt_819. However, it's a steel hub with steel spokes. Do you think it's worth it to spend $200 more for the billet hub and stainless spokes?

EDIT: Correction, it's $263 shipped for a Kustomwerks billet and stainless spoke wheel - not bad!

I am using a slitherin seat with a steel fender. Save your self the hassle and just get a steel fender from the get go. With the stock fender the 180 looks a little offset to one side. I tried to keep the stocker and ground down a shit load of the sub frame and still rubbed a groove into the tire. now running a 200 looks much better.

With a billet hub you will most likely not need a spacer for the brake rotor. As for the spokes does your bike stay parked out in the weather alot?

Nope, garaged. Probably won't even see rain. Are Kustomwerks decent quality wheels? If not, what's a good wheel brand to go with?

No spacer needed for the rotor.

I'm running a 2009 Night Train rear. I believe it had a 25mm or 1" (I've been told they are different) axle. I swapped bearings. Polaris/Victory run a 20mm axle and the bearings are the same O.D. as the HD rim.


Here is a list of HD model,axle size and wheel size. I can only post link, some one should convert this to a picture and post it in case the link turns to shit. I'd do it myself, but I don't fuckin know how.http://www.box.net/shared/kqmbzdh99i

Heres a good place for brake line.

He will make any length, fitting combination, and has different color options. He made mine quick! This is where I will continue to go for any brake line I need.

Another to keep in mind is the chain guard wont fit with a 200 tire. You will need to use washers to move it away from the tire or shave it so it wont hit the tire. Just trying to think of some little problems I encountered. Every little problem was easily fixed.
