Good to know! I got one of them and it should be easy enough to find matching front.
And while I have no idea how cost effective it may be, if someone wanted an 18" mag rear to match the factory 9 spoke front, but wanted one a little wider than the older narrow stock ones, there are companies like Kosman that can widen the rims, and most likely make the bead seat area more suitable for tubeless use.
How's the tire selection for 18"x 2.5" rear rims? Been a few years since I've looked for 18" rears....
Plenty of brand choices for 18" rear tires.
Avon, Dunlop, Bridgestone, Pirelli, Shinko, Continental, Kenda, etc.
Amen to that, although I have to admit Bronson's looked OK with a 21" front.
God that's gorgeous ...
Wow! Love that bike, hated the 2.2 gallon tank
I'm pretty sure the Bronson bike had a 19'' front wheel. HD never made an aluminum rim 21''...
It always 'bothered' me that the bike had a alloy rim on the front and a steel wheel on the back.
The "Interconnected duals" exhaust is one of my favorites though, and they are getting really hard to find,
This one was built by Smokey Mt. HD in Maryville Tn.
The wheels weren't stock. Here is a list of the mods from an issue of Motorcycle Classics:
The original Bronson Bikes were modified 1969 XLH Sportsters. They were not radical customs and used standard engine components, but had a number of visual changes including: 21-inch alloy front wheel with ribbed tire Peanut gas tank from the XLCH model Special handlebars Bobbed and chromed front fender Bobbed rear fender Slim custom seat Chrome chain guard, voltage regulator and oil tank British aftermarket tail light Earlier small air cleaner Chrome Bates headlight Schwinn bicycle sissy bar Special Bronson Red paint All Seeing Eye tank logos

If and when you decide you need some space, pm me. That is THE Sporty I want (that I can afford, the CR in the flea market speaks to me but I can't swing the entry price). I'll be on a plane pronto.
Sorry if this has been posted. I just saw this in the Police section of H-D's web site. I like it. 883 Police model.
Finally got my XR1200 front brake mounted and good gord does it like to stop!! Should have done this a while ago!! I will post up pics when I get a chance. By the way, thanks Randy for pn and your original writeup.
Yep, for a relatively inexpensive and straight forward mod, it makes for a pretty significant improvement in braking.
Glad you like it!
Nice. I like these scramblerfied Sportsters.
I just picked up a pair of rear shocks from a fellow inmate...thanks Tom!
I won't have time to mount them this weekend but they should give me more travel and ground clearance, I might need a new longer kickstand though.
Got and installed the supertrapp stainless pipe today.
Looks and sounds much better than the old exhaust
Looks good, man.
I like the sound of the supertrapp on the Sportster. Way better than trailer park straight pipes.
Yep, sounds good, actually helps performance especially in the lower end, doesn't set off car alarms.
Looks great! Love the two into one look and sound.
