180 front tire installed

After a long 2 month wait, wheel finally arrived!! Put almost 300 miles on her so far, all I can say is amazing. Handles like a sport bike, loves corners, like a freight train on rails.

That looks awesome! What size rim did you use and we're you able to use the stock forks or is it a replacement kit? Everyone's head would explode when I tell them them I already have a car tire on the rear and I'm toying with the idea of putting a rear tire on the front

Thank. Rim is an 18x5.5. Used PM forks custom machined by native custom baggers. I thought about the CT on the rear. How does it handle in the corners?

Looks fantastic.

Mind sharing your parts list, vendor and cost for the mod?

Yeah that definitely looks badass with that fatty on the front. As far as the CT on the rear, I've got about 600 miles on it so far and I have no complaints with it in the corners. I just rode about 220 miles round trip this past sunday running about 85/90mph on my way out to New York for the day. I'm actually glad I decided to take the plunge and try it.
