    I've been thinking about putting a 21'' wheel on my 08 street bob and had a couple of questions that I was hoping someone could answer.
    1. My buddy has a 21" complete wheel from a 07 night train, now i know the hub won't work due to my bike haveing a mid-glide front end, the hub on the wheel is too wide. But can I use the drop center rim and spokes to lace up to my hub?
    2. Does anyone have a recomendation for a lowering kit for the front end? I have been told that I will want to lower the front a couple of inches to keep the handleing where it is at.

    I will be putting lowering blocks on the rear to keep the stock look so I am just looking for the front springs. I have looked at progressive springs but I'm up for any other suggestions.
