So here you go Project still isn't completely finished gotta get some longer bolts for the front caliper then all done. I put a Vulcan 500 19 in spoke front on my LT allowing me to keep front fender. It's not an absolute direct fit nor is it a complete fab job. I picked the wheel up for $40 all it was is remove seals, retainers, bearings, then widen up the whole for the center spacer. Replace bearings and spacers with stockers from 900 and viola. More pics later.

thanks a lot I got everything to fit but after reading the service manual and trying a test ride I ran into one more issue the wheel bearings are one time install. If you remove them they're done. The bike will ride it just felt a tad stuck and now I know why. really surprised this doesn't have many views I bet most people think it means or I'm asking I if I can fit a custom wheel lol.

Looks real nice. I went with the 21" wheels from the Custom on my Classic. Kept the Classic fender, I had to move it up about 3/4 to an inch though.

Would like to some pics

Yeah, I'd like to see some pics too. I want to put the custom on my classic but thought that i would have to change the fender. How does it fit with the skinnier wheel? I think the custom is a 21" x 2.15 wheel, so i was wondering if the gap looks big with the classic fender.

Pictures are worth a thousand words. If you have some free time I would really like to see some pics.

Thanks
