Thanks to all the determining info about the added cost of the HD and other aftermarket wheel conversions. Too rich for my blood! Plus I like the classic spoke look. To me its worth the effort cleaning. And I commute 80 miles round trip to work and back.
Hey Rocketnoob, Fuck off & welcome!

Added cost for the HD wheel but sooo worth it!!! Losing that ugly drum brake really makes a big difference.

That rim will work if you're wanting to relace to your factory hub and keep the drum brake.

While that's a totally feasable route to take, it's going to cost more money than doing a straight wheel swap. The harley swap is a tad less expensive, but more work if you want to keep your rear brake.

What I'd recommend is getting the rim in the Ebay link below (same one I have) new sprocket from Sprocket Specialists (tell them you want a harley bolt pattern and 525 pitch and however many teeth you want, I have a 39 tooth, if I'm not mistaken)

If you want a brake, you can get a disc and caliper for harley rear, and use a master cylinder from somethign else, but I'm not too sure of the whole process. I never used a rear brake, so I just ditched it when I did the swap.


Now that I've given a brief summary, go read my "harley rear swap for dummies" thread. This mod is easy as hell if you skip the brake, if you want it, search for a how to, because I'm pretty sure someone on here has posted one. May wanna suggest a sticky if you find a good writeup...

Thanks for the link bud, that whole rim is much cheaper then the one I posted, I will have to read up on the Harley swap for dummies, I was just going to get the rim from Buchanan and relace to the stock hub, I really didn't want to mess with trying to line up a brake on the swing arm, but its worth a read to see what's its all about.

Did you use the same size tube for the 200?
