I was wondering if any of the solid wheels from other model Vstars will fit a 01 Custom as I'm not looking to spend a grand on a single wheel for other custom wheels .

Classic and Silverado wheels were mostly cast..... Customs were spoked. Not a big difference to me.....either will work.

the front wheel on the 1100 custom is narrower and taller (18") than the fronts on the classic or Silverado (16"). not sure if front forks and fender are wide enough for the different wheel. think you would have to measure to make sure it would fit.

I can say that I was looking to pick up a windshield from a Silverado but it wasn't going to fit my custom without some modifications.

Hmm yeah I will definitely do some measuring first and I will look into the newer 950 front wheels to

Classic fronts will fit just fine on a Custom. The overall height is almost exactly the same with the tire mounted so you can even use the front fender of you want. It's just a little fatter.... and doesn't create any issues at all.

The reason the windshield won't fit is because of the fork tins on the Classic. The tree and forks are interchangeable.
