Bonneville front wheel on an America?

Hi all -

I have a '07 America with the standard 18" front wheel. Would a '05 Bonneville front 19" wheel fit ? I know that I'd have to delete the fender, but otherwise (and brakewise ) ... would the new hub fit ?

- Fred

I need to know if a Bonneville hub fit on my bike because I'd like to get a 21" front wheel by using British Customs' wheel kit

You need a Thunderbird 900 Hub or wheel. This is not the new thunderbird...the hub can be laced to a 21"...

Hi
A mate with a 07 speedmaster was asking me about that yesturday, he wants to put a spoked wheel on it.
He parked his speedy next to my T-100, there is alot of differance's between the two bikes, more than I would have thought.
I should have thought some one would have a conversion for the cruiser's, I think a 21" wheel would look flash.
Cheers Doug

21" Wheel

Hi Grzeorz
Yeah that looks flash.
An I know you said don't ask, but,,,,,,,,,,,,
I took a Tiger XC for a test, nearly ran off the road @ 140ks, on the first real corner!!
Looked at your flicker page any chance you can put some words to them?
Cheers Doug
