    Hi This is my first post.
    Anyway i am looking for a new bike and i quite fancy a wide glide.But i want to modify to my requirements.
    I dont want forward controls.i want to fit mids.
    I want to fit fatboy wheels front and rear.Or two rear fatboy wheels.
    The forks i want to extend by 4 inches.
    Also minor mods like change the bars to 12 inch Tees.
    Could anyone forsee any major problems.

    You should be able to swap with someone that wants the forward controls in a heartbeat.

    The wheels should go as long as they are from the right year FB with the same size axles.

    The WG already has 2" over on the front forks (41MM) also.

    Bars should be easy but the cables may be too long depending on the rise of the new bars.

    You may want to start looking into a Fat Bob. You may have some fit issues with what you want to do.

    The idea of the longer forks is to make up the size difference in the wheels.
    From a 21 to a 16.
    I dont want to rake it out to much,with a bit of sag it wont be far off.
    Had a quote for fork tubes.Around £200.

    Check your outer diameter on the two size wheels, I don't think there will be a great difference between them. I went from a 21 to a 19 on a WG and the outer diameter was only about 3/8" difference at best.
