21 inch Harley rim

Has anyone put a 21 inch Harley spoke wheel on your vulcan? I saw one on a Honda Shadow and I liked how it looked.

I have been trying to find some REAL info on this as well. Looking to do at least a 19 if not a 21 on a 2010 Vulcan. Been like pulling teeth.
I KNOW for a Fact on the Harley's the difference in the year split. The axle shaft size changed. But on those we just use special bearings that change the inner shaft size to mate with the axle shaft.
I might just try it in the next week or so. The front rotor options for the Harley's are endless as well. Just have to figure out shimming the caliper back to center

That bike in the video they did a Cheapy install. I'm not gonna compromise and just delete the front brake.
I'm looking at buying This wheel and making it work. That bike in the video Also had the baby 2" wide rim. I don't like those on cruisers Specially with the pot holes we have back here in the MidWest.

How about a factory 21" Vulcan 800a wheel?
At least the bearings are metric also.
