  • I want to put a 26" or 30" front rim on my Road Star to give it that bagger look

    Hello fellow forum members! If anyone has suggestions, advice, instructions, or feedback on my topic please don't hesitate to help me. I would like to put a 26" or 30" front rim on my bike to give it the bagger look. First off do I need to extend my fork length and if so what's the best cost effective way? Second do I need to rake my front and if so what's the best cost effective way? And where is the best price for rims of that size for my road star?

    THANKS Y'ALL

    I think Brian veeney? Has the parts you need. I have heard anything over 23 inch doesn’t ride very well. Looks nice on the trailer tho.

          Maybe check at choppedbaggers.com in the metric forum.
          In particular look for strike3s bagger projects. There is lots of ways to spend money over there.

            I went with the 23" Fat Chrome front and 18" rear. No rake she steers much better than the stock setup. I also added a train horn above the gear shift mounted on the front frame rail.

              Looks Much better than a 26in or bigger... Does it turn in nice or sort of flop fast left and right? Big fat chrome spokes look Very good on the bikes.

                I use beach bars that are wide. That coupled with the 23 make it where I can actually steer her like a bike at slow speeds. And at moderate speeds her steer much more nimble and quick. Absolutely no complaints.
