I've tried TryDNA after a recommendation, but they told me they couldn't make it. It seems impossible to me that there is no one on Earth who would be willing to lace an '01 Sporty appropriate hub to an 18"x3" wheel, but I haven't found them yet. I need to keep trying because I know it's out there, but if anyone has any leads that might simplify the search, I'd sure appreciate it. For the mean time though, it's gonna be whatever tire you have, ban2go, or Earl thinks he might have a used one that can get me through another season.
I'm certainly no expert , but I would have thought finding an 18 wheel for the most often modified motorcycle ,ever ,would be easy .
