Looking for a Chrome Solid 16x3 rear wheel

I've been scouring the good old inter webs and can't find an answer so I figured I'd ask the knowledgeable Brethren of Our Great Forum.
I would like to put a Solid Rear Wheel on my 2012 Custom and wanted to know if anyone knows of a brand or Harley OEM that will fit?
Thanks, in advance, to All that reply.

Are you going to be using a 25mm axle? Are you opposed to using a Fat Boy wheel? I’ve seen a number of them on eBay and I had gotten a set for ‘77 FL. Are you still wanting to use Cush drive? Chain drive?

I have the stock axle from my 2012 Custom on there now Bro.
I wanted to keep the Cush Drive and Belt but not opposed to changing if it's necessary.
I wanted to go with the Fatboy Solid Rear Wheel in chrome but didn't know what I would have to do to make it work.
Thanks for your assistance.

To make the wheel work, the easiest way would be to get (2) 25mm bearings and use the center spacer from your existing wheel, since it’s the same width as your current wheel. That should allow you to use the wheel spacers that you already have.

As for the Cush drive; I can’t remember what year had the bolt on Cush drive cup versus the molded in style. If your has the bolt on style cup, it will have the same bolt pattern as the sprocket that would have bee on the Fat Boy wheel so you should just have to bolt the Cush drive cup onto the Fat Boy wheel.

Thanks, once again, Bro for all the information.
I'm probably going to give that a try and see how it goes.
