I've been trying to convince my mate Joe to put an 18 on the front of this bike for about ten years. New stainless spokes front and back, new 18 inch rim on the front, new Avons front and rear, new drum on front to replace cracked one, front and rear drums skimmed on the lathe, rebuilt the starhubs, rebuilt the springer, new handlebars (thanks Brado for the bends), and a bunch of other little service things. The difference in the handling is astounding. #themachinefiles #harleydavidson #knucklehead #ilovemotorbike
