Classic front end on Custom

I am looking at modifying my V Star 650 Custom
I also have a Classic parts bike and would like to put the front end on the custom so I can run a wider tire for the bobber project


any help appreciated

Isn't the width of them the same? You should measure the trees and forks. I think they are the same dimensions. Only difference is the tire. I have a custom front tire on a classic and I didn't change anything but the tire and rim.

It'll fit just fine. Dimensions are identical. Only the lower forks and lower triple tree are different as far as I know...that is to allow the fork tins to fit and different fenders to mount.

As mentioned above, you can just swap the wheel if you want.

Sweet thanks
I want to bob my bike out and wanted the wider tire with white wall, I think it looks better on a bobber

Thanks Ron
