Done it .... It pretty much just plops right in there - ALTHOUGH the fender stay bolt holes MAY need to be slotted for good clearance. It adds a degree of rake or two to the bike - it does enhance the stability through this and its larger diameter (gyroscopic effect). Sadly - the bike was not able to be "muled" as much as I'd like one to be before it got snatched up for a "trailer queen", so I can't tell you any more than that about it. Right off the get-go, however, it was fantastic! It fills the front mudguard ALL the way and looks rather custom, BTW ....
ScooterBob, Did you post a pic of it? I think I read some where that you did, but can't locate it.

Sadly - I haven't seen that bike for months - it was SUPPOSED to be loaded up for a demo bike - and then brought back. I'll bet SOMEONE out there has it - and doesn't even KNOW what they have ...... sigh .........  :(

Yea, brown would work nice. Do you guys have any of those 19" wheel set ups in stock? minus tire, laced up to a hub?

The part number is Z90541 - and you get to put it together. Wheel building service IS offered - but I'm not sure of the part number or the price - Tim, The Parts Man has the angle on THAT end of it ...... ! The price is $139.95 - it's on page 7 of the N-Field Gear catalog.

OK, parts all ordered. Rim and spokes from Nfield. 90/90- 19" Avon roadrider, from Dk to match the rear. As scooterbob said they do offer wheel building at a pretty fair price, considering labor involved with lacing.You'll have to send in your hub, which I would recommend. Me, I do it, and the impatient type so I'll do it myself.For those or us who do not do it everyday its a time consuming tedious task. Not many guy's around who do it anymore, so if you find someone near by and he's good, use him. It' s dying art, and a good wheel guy will fly through the lacing process.
