Mack Hammer is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 1983 sportie front axle & bearing size

I looked though a number of posts but was unable to find what axle the 83 runs or bearings for the front wheel. If any one could guide me in the right direction I would appreciate it.
I want to use a larger spoke front wheel, other than the fender is there anything else I need to know, such as will it affect the handling of the bike ?
I’m assuming that most any Harley front wheel will fit my bike if I purchase the correct bearings?
I’m from Nova Scotia-any other blue nosers Here ?
Thank you in advance
