Default Harley Mag in a frame made for Trimph??

My plan is to run Harley mag wheels in a frame meant for a Brit. I'm just wondering about the width issue. Has anyone done this?? Got pics?? Or I could go with a custom frame to make it easier. Thanks guys.

Then plan to have the rear wheel be too goddamned wide. I don't mean just a little, but "sprocket teeth hit the frame" kind of too wide.

Shit, we have a hard time getting chains to not hit a 130 tyre...

Might be easier to reconsider your wheel choice. What about some nice alloy rims, or you could be part of the scene and put a 19 on the back.

I have done it all you need is a MACHINE SHOP !

Like Benway said they are to wide , the sprocket is not inline with the engine so the [poor way is to run a dished sprocket backwards with a 120 tire then just havce the rear wheel offset a hair in the frame .

If youre not going with a rigid you could change the width of the rear sub. And if you are going rigid, you could widen the rear before attaching it. I ran a 175 back in '92 on a '67 Bonnie frame with a weldon. You just have to know what youre doing (I had expert help) and a frame jig dont hurt. Alignment is the key worry on this modification.

Nah Dutch I'm sticking clear of "the scene"......

I think dbkp has got a line on some stuff for me with lots of good info. He pointed me toward an early Morris mag that can be trimmed down some.
