    Hi all.
    I ve just joined this forum and it looks great.
    I have a 1990 Harley sportster 1200.
    The front wheel is a standard 18" not in great condition.
    Will a 21" wheel go in without too much modification or expense?
    Im sure this has been done before!
    Cheers Don.:newsmile061:

    Front fender from a softail custom or a wide glide could be made to fit as they are for a 21" wheel so should be the right profile and just need a wee bit of tweeking to fit onto the forks
