    Hi all
    The tourers got the 1" rear axle for the '02 models.
    Does anyone know when it was introduced on other models?

    I am looking for a new 1" axle 16 x 3 rear cast wheel, and need to know what years to look for...

    Karl; This does not seem as easy as I thought. I just looked online at J&P cycles catalog. It lists 1" for some 2006 and some 2007 Dyna series. A different 1" is listed for some 2008-2009 Softails, and some 2010-2011 Softails. Try looking at some online parts suppliers to figure out what will work for you.
    I have an appointment right now, so I can't look more. Good luck

    Thanks guys.
    Yeah, I got confused after a couple of searches. I thought there might be some 'ultimate list' but your answers makes me understand that it is not that simple.
    Btw, it's crazy that harley went 'Euro' on a size so close to 1" (1" equals 25.4mm!)
    Adding complication further as some of the later models got wider rims/tyres as well...
    I'll use your listings and search a bit to make a list - or I'll just give up and find myelf a '02-'07 touring wheel that I know fits for me.
