The First Piece To The Puzzle

I want to run Harley 9 spoke mag wheels for my new FXR project.  One problem, the frame I have is for a 200 tire, the rear Harley 9 spoke wheel is a 16x3.  You need about a 5.5 wide wheel to run a 200 tire, so I called Kosmans to see if they could widen it that much and could they make it a 17 also.  I talked to Matt out there, who was super helpful, and he said no problem.  So problem solved, my old 16x3 is now a 17x5.5 with offset lips so I don't have to run some crazy big spacers for the sprocket to clear the tire.
