    I have an 07 Street Bob and would like to beef up the front similar to the new Fat Bob by going to a wide glide tree and
    a 130/90 tire. Will I need to change hubs as well?:dknow

    Your gonna replace the front wheel rim with a wider rim to fit a 130 tire & swap to Wideglide trees? If so it will work but it the spacers between the hub and forks will have to be changed .
    With the right wheel (aftermarket) you can run a 130/90 on the stock front-end.
    A V-Rod front-end is the way to go if you want to do it the High performance way, you'll need a FLH 11/16" bore master cylinder for the duel front breaks. The whole V-Rod to Dyna front-end swap takes about an hour, both 49mm forks.

    Thanks for the help and suggestion. I'll let you know how it turns out. I've got a 3" rim and will relace it to my stock hub first before going on to the wide glide trees.
