Anyone done this? And I don't mean with the stock 21 inch wheel. I mean with a smaller diameter front wheel and wider tire. Similar to a HD Fat Bob. Pics would be cool and thanks in advance.

I plan on doing this. Mean cycles has a 21" 120/90 rim i think for about $1100. Our 80/90 21 is just too narrow
Wow that's a lot of coin for a wheel! I agree it's too narrow. That's the only reason I didn't buy one. I couldn't get past the skinny wheel.

I would assume a classic wheel would fit. Just wondered if anyone has done it.

Bigworm is right a classic wheel will fit, and they are alot cheaper and easy to come by. That is if you are trying the bobbed out look. :D

You don't need another rim for a 120/70, just the stock one.

actually the stock rim is 2.5 inches, and the minimum sugested rim width for that tire is 3.5 inches
