      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:
          https://www.facebook.com/midwestcustomsofmadrid/
          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

                    How much can
                    the rear axle travel up from normal stand ? Stock Suspension. I know rider weight effects this .

                          Yeah it looks like it's been a couple months since he's been here. I'm sure he'll be around before too long. Would be interested in what this build is doing. I'm sure he's like me with snow on the ground so can't ride bikes, just talk about them.....
