Hi.
Does Stingray 21" front wheel fits XC ?
I found one for sale here in Sweden.

Well I've fitted a 18" XC front wheel to my Vegas before and it all fits up (albeit with only one disc rotor, and have to lift the front fender a little)
Dont see why you couldnt go the other way, youd need to blank off one brake line and change or modify you front fender as well I think.
Let us know how it pans out should you go ahead .

Would think so but your going to have to find wheel spacers

That bike is a kingpin... Or no? It's not the best picture but it sure looks like a steel frame to me.

ya he only has a couple pics to look at, but no its a cross country with octane pipes and a vegas front wheel.

It'll fit I reckon, and look pretty cool, but,.. you'll be going back to just one front disc brake rotor.

ya, i think many that go big wheel go back to a single rotor, he said a second could be added but the hub needs to be drilled for it.

Without the crash bars and with the Octanes and Vegas front wheel; it really makes the bike look much smaller. Like Kingpin size maybe.

He's going to be a very unhappy camper if he ever drops it; even at a stop. I ran mine without the crash bars for a little while and liked how it looked but then thought about all the damage it might get if I dropped it and put the crash bars back on along with getting the bag bars. Glad I did. They paid for themselves one time already.

No way...have a good look at a 21" Stingray,
theres no meat on the rh side of the wheel to drill into

Yeah, I get lots of favourable comments on the stingray wheels on my Vegas.
Mostly off unknown people in the street.
Silliest thing they can do is then ask me about the bike, cos I just cant help but extoll all the virtues of our wonderful machines to them!
If they ride or have ridden in the past Ill generally tell em about Victory Austalias 'weekend escape'
Where you get the Vic of your choice, all fuelled up, and a $200 Best. Western Hotel card to go and put some miles on a Vic and have a free overnight stay in whatever town you end up in.
give em a card from the dealership if theyre interested.
Ive probably sold a few bikes for em!
Victorys certainly have the styling.

Hi guys!
Long time since I wrote something here..... :eek
I have bought this Stingray wheel and tested it today. Just Plug and Play :grin
Only thing is right brake must taken off. And little fix with front fender to make it fit.
Whats your oponion on 21" tyres? Metzeler, Dunlop, or other brand?

Regards Håkan

That looks great Håkan. I'm not entirely sure I'd want to give up a 2nd brake disk, but it certainly looks like a new direction.
