      I'm so freaking jealous !! That's my dream is to use that set up. It's just they want so much money for it. Did you get it new ? Or from flea bay ?

        Got it from Midwest Customs of Madrid (Shawn Gibbs) in Iowa.
        It's not really very expensive - Cost $550 custom made to my spec.

          For those interested in a custom swingarm made for your Roadstar to fit any size rear tire you want at a GOOD price:

          You can also choose what size rear axle you want based on what wheel you plan on using.

              Yup & you pick what width & axle diameter you want. Any size, same price.

            So Bubba when you say to your spec, what are you doing exactly. Is that a Raider rear wheel ? And are you changing the rear fender ? 550 is an awesome price. You just painting or chrome or ??

              I'm using HD front & rear custom billet wheels and told him how wide I wanted the rear.
              Front tire is a 3.5" x21", rear is a 250.


              The new swingarm is 13" between the axle plates, stock is about 11.5".
              Test fitting the SA I have more than 6" of travel with no frame interference.

              I'll be making a custom fender from scratch & powder coating the swingarm.
              If I can find or build a big enough oven, I'm going to powder coat the entire frame.

              I'm also making a custom gas tank, long forks, probably making a seat as well.
              Might even put a big honking chrome HD nacelle on it just to piss people off. LOL
              Except for the transfer case & giant pushrod tubes, this isn't going to look like a normal Roadstar at all.

              My main focus is price, I'm waiting for the right parts to come along as cheaply as possible to see just how low of a budget I can build a custom bike for.
              Not a stock bike with a couple bolt-on doodads - a true custom with as many hand made parts as possible.

                  Personally having had a 240mm tire on a chopper and a 200mm tire I would choose the 200mm tire on a 5.5 inch harley wheel.
                  You can stay with a 3/4" axle too. The handling will be better. That 40mm is not that much extra. Only 1.5 inches
