Could I have my 18" 1100 wheel relaced up to a 21"

Just curious, I'm wanting a 21" front on my 1100. So I'm wondering if I can have my 18" redone or should I do a Harley conversion. Any shops out there that do this.

I think Sick Mick can tell you about the HD 21" change over. Cheeper.

i did a harley 21" wheel. im in at under $400 counting the tire and powdercoat. i also over paid on the axle machining cause they were the only guys around to do it on short notice. its really pretty easy. just follow the KB.

What did your wheel come off? I found a few HD softtail 21" takeoff wheels for about $100 with a good tire. And axles on eBay with retry cheap.

Josh baker that looks really good👍 I want to do the same to my 1300. What's involved with replacing a stock front tire to a 21" HD tire

Here's a link to the how to on a 1100. Should be pretty well the same minus what axle you'd need.
I have different idea I want to try as far as trying to retain my stock axle instead an HD.

You may have trouble finding a rim with the right spoke count/spacing unless you have it custom made. I haven't checked prices for that lately, but it used to be pretty expensive.

Follow that link above....I did the write-up in the wKB on the process and have seen it done a couple other ways as well. But the method shown is tried and true.

That's my palm to do a Harley 21" swap on mine. But instead of the 3/4 shaft part my plan is to go up to 1" bearings(3/4",1", 25mm all interchangeable) and have 2 bearing reducers made to go from 1" done to 17mm so i can retain my stock axle. Just gotta find a nice wheel for a fair price.

thanks. my wheel came from a soft tail i believe. i unlaced it, had the spokes powder coated black, polished the rim and hub, and re-laced it myself. i gave $60 for the wheel on craigslist. i got the axle and spacers from ebay. planning on a different harley rotor soon.

I'm running a 3/4" to 17mm spacer on mine right now. Only have about 5,000 miles on it....so no idea of long term service life yet.
