Wrap around, progressive monotubes, and heavy duty fork oil(a little overfilled)

07 Glide with a few goodies

I agree with Swagzilla, i got two buddies running 23" with progressive monotubes, 10wt fork oil, and wrap fender installed. They have not run into any problems smooth speeds at 80+. I dont believe all this you need racked triple trees for a 23" but they will try to sell you on it. Dont let um.. peace

Twisted. They didn't rake or tree it?

2012 RG gloss black. Part of the 26" club now.
2008 fat boy. Loved her but had to let her go for the glide I've been eyeing for a while now.

they did not , the only thing that they both did was tighten up on the neck bolt. besides installing the progressive monotubes and different fender they rolling good. I have a 23" wheel on the way and have already installed the progressive monotubes can't wait to get that rim mounted up. Bike on jack in the air with no front tire lol am glad it has been raining here for 3 weeks now.
