V Star 650 Rear Wheel

I was looking around the 'net about the Harley 21" front wheel mod and came across this.

I was wondering what bike that rear wheel is off?

He says its "18" rear wheel conversion mod" as if it's something common but he's literally the only person I can find with it.

Obviously, my bike's a soft-tail so I'd have to harden the suspension a bit.

(As well as lower the bike using a baron kit or by doing J-Slam but yeah..)

So could anyone identify that wheel or just point me in the right direction for finding one that I can swap the hub from my V-Star onto?


EDIT: Just found it's a custom made rear wheel. Oops.

If anyone's interested, here's a "build" video:
