    I don't particularly want to go down this route but I just can't find a 56 spoke five and half inch rim in the UK.

    I ran an 5.5x18" rear spoke HD wheel with a 200/55R18. If you go that wide you'll need to widen the fender and grind the brake stay. Used a 1"dia x 13.5" long (if my memory serves me right) axle with assorted spacers to get the correct alignment. HD rotor with the stock brake caliper.
    I also ran a 65 tooth rear drive pulley. It was definitely a highway cruiser with that setup.

    I think Smokescreens did one with a HD rear but it wasn't easy

    None without a lot of work. I don’t recall anyone doing it.

    Depends on the year of your bike. A '99 - '03 hub won't work without changing the inner bearing to one without the extended inner race. All I had to swap out was the pulley because of my wider belt.

    What about the hub, is it the same? Will my old hub still work?

    Yup, use the cast wheel spacers with the cast wheels & they bolt right in.

    If memory serves, I believe that that it is almost a direct swap. You will have to use the original spacers and your drive pulley assembly.

    Spoke wheel to mag wheel swap.

    I know this was touched on once before on the old forum. What is needed to swap a factory rear spoke wheel with a mag wheel?
