Hey guys I've been switching over to a 300 tire with a 10.5" wheel. I am almost done.....There is enough space between the belt and tire to see through that's about it!!! I will post more of the finished product :D :D :Dcheers



PS I have no idea why the pictures are all sideways Ive flipped them every which way but no luck :(

wounder if he will look like this
Hahahaha I might....but my hair isnt that long :D

I didnt get any studs for my new wheel where I bought it and Victory wanted $70 for the 5 studs...A little ridiculous so I went with bolts that my chrome caps still fit over and they are the same strength as the studs that Vic uses for the 05 Hammer. Only paid $15 and thats including some locktite!

It takes guys a long time that hardware stores auto part store sell the equivalent to what Vis sells.
I worked for a local H-D dealer selling parts and you would not believe how many came in for turn signal bulbs. Of coarse they only went past three dozen places that sold the same bulb for a lot less.

Looking great Gcash- keep the pics coming. I've only done about 300 miles on my new Avons, but so far I think it has better feel than the Metzelers. Heaps better than the dunlops.

That photo of your old rear tire (the visionjohnny "upright" photos)- you've either got a lot of left handers around your place lol, or the photo doesnt show the left hand side properly :) nice big bald patch in the middle though- that's those dunlops for you.......

Hey I notice you are wearing overalls- is that because it's so freaking cold?

Man it took me all day to find bolts that were appropriate for what I needed. Checked all auto parts stores (they told me to check with companies that sell compressor parts for bolts I need :S) finally home depot was the place that had what I needed and I was giving up!!

Ya I was noticed that awhile ago Kris when I had bought the bike the tire was already deformed looking and I thought the wear pattern was very odd. Thats actually my brother in the overalls but yes it is FREEZING cold here...-27 deg celsius today
