well, that's been the traditional size of rear wheels for 3-4 decades;

what make bike ?? (cant say I've ever seen a d.d. 130x18 in a wideglide fork tho)

if it's something custom, you could always just use your choice of hub, a new rim, & send off to Buchanan's; that's their gig...... or buy their custom spokes & lace it yourself.

lotta unknowns here.

That was pretty vague, sorry about that.

I'm looking for a rear for an HD. I want to run an 18 out back, but want to stick with a 130 tire. Only thing I've seen for sale anywhere are the old Sportster wheels...and most of the ones I come across are in pretty bad shape.

I know there have been some bikes posted on here that look like they're set up this way. Was just wondering where folks got them. Thanks.

Here's 18x3.00 steelies front & rear with 130-18 Avons..
The black bike has a 18x3.25 rear aluminum Akront (Morad) with 130-18 Avon...
That's exactly what I'm looking for. I really dig that look. That a 21 up front on the black bike?

Hog...
I run Sun rims exclusively.
Have since my BMX days...and I stick with what I feels works. Twenty years on..and they've never let me down.
That, and they are the sharpest rim on the market...no dimples..just super clean.
Use Buchanan's...they powdercoat, lace...EVERYTHING.
Some of the only shit that's billet on my rides are the hubs...and I like to use precision hubs and nice bearings...have been running some sick ceramic bearings lately...really nice.
ANYWAY...I digress...Here's my bagger in the background with the exact set-up you require.

Running a 150 out back.
Hope it helps...and do post photos when you are done, and what your solution was.

Thanks guy. Like you said, I knew the name Sun back from bicycles, but don't know much about their motorcycle stuff. I might have to end up skipping the brand new stuff, and looking for some used wheel off a bagger or something to keep within my budget. I'll keep you all updated.

Yep, that's a 21" with a 3.00 Avon up front...

On the cream colored bike I used steel 18x3.00 rims... Akront, Sun or Axcel only had aluminum rims (at that time..) and that was not what I wanted on that FL style bike..
So it all depends what style your scoot is going to be to make the choice between aluminium or HD style steel rims..that's my 0.2 cents..
