I want to start collecting parts for my triumph so when the weather get's shitty i got what i need to mock it up...
Right now it has 18's front and back...
What i want is to run the 18 in the rear and a 21 up front..
Probably use a 40 spoke Harley rim and lace it to the trump hub out back...

I want to build the bike around the wheels/tires and stance..
And those are the first thing's i'm going to get..

so...with all that said...

Good idea or should i go with something like a 18 rear and 19 front..

18" out back, and theres no need for a Harley hub. Keep it Brit. 21" up front sounds good as well. Michelle says the same thing, so you have to.

Thanks Jay.
I thought that was a 21, but it's hard for me to tell from pics..

I think my initial plan is what i'm gonna do..
18 rear with 21 up front..

Thanks, and again thats a nice bike!

Check out the recent post about triumph wheel/tire sizes. I run a 19" front and rear w/ avon ribbed speedmasters. (3.25f-4.5r) (does a nasty burnout, but not good for stability/corners {especially w/ a hardtail})

Just build it with part that are cheap...

thanks, i'll check it out..
And building it cheep it what i'm after, but i also don't want to cut corners on how i want it to look and run....
i'm sure i'll end up getting crazy on this like i seem to when i build cars :D
The 19 up front looks good too, so if i can't find a 21 i can afford i'll do that instead.

Pardon my trespass and blasphemous nature. But may I suggest as well keeping an eye out for a Jap 21". They're usually cheaper.

also be aware that a lot of Japanese rims are 36-hole, so make sure you can use it...

...bone stck 19' on the back, $15 swap meet 21" on the front!
Damn, Jay. $15 for a 21" front? I must be going to the wrong swap meet. Even though I'm doing a 16 on my trump, I have always dug that bike. Is it still around?

Guy's, thanks.
I'm new to triumph's, well not new as far as the bikes themselves, but rather building one, and learning as i go.
So the info given will be put to good use.
