    I have an 04 Heritage Softail and want to put a set of 05 Harley Touring bike mag wheels on it. Does anyone know if the axles are the same diameter, is the wheel width the same, and are there any fit problems?

    Here is an update. The axles may be different. Some are 3/4 and others are 1". The sealed bearings are the same outside diameter, so they are interchangeable. The spokes and the mags are the same hub width, no problems. I will post pictures of the finished product soon. :bigsmiley12:

    Well, the project is done. :bigsmiley12: As stated before, the bearings are the same size, the axles are 3/4 on the Heritage, the wheel width is the same so no new spacers needed. I put new rubber on the spoke wheels, found another right front hub cap and had it powder coated in "Black Chrome" and installed that. I added chrome brake rotors front and rear. Polished the outer rim of the stock rear drive pulley, painted the rest of it flat black along with the washers. I polished the bolt heads and mounted it onto the rear rim. I also polished all the spacers. It looks different than any other Heritage Softail that I have seen. :small3d031: However, it looks really nice. Pictures to be added later this week.

    Here the pictures of the finished wheel installation. These are 2005 ElectraGlide 9 spoke cast wheels, 16" with Dunlop 402's mounted up. TheBrake rotors are chromed aftermarket with chromed hardware. The front hub cover was powder coated in Blask Chrome and all spacers were polished. The drive pulley was painted flat black and then the outer edge was polished to match the wheels. New bearings were installed as well. I like the look and the ride is noticeably different. It was a simple change at minimum cost. I have not found another Heritage Softail Classic that has anything close to this look. :bigsmiley12:
