that's good procedure Chuck.i wanted the rare tire.the rim was of no use to me.that 18'' drop center rim had no business being on the front of my XLCH! it didn't bother me one bit to mangle it.

I have a correct alloy rim rounded up but no OEM spokes yet.

I would love to trade front wheels !

This 61 is about to go on the market if anybody cares. 7330 actual miles w/original dealer invoice from new.
Thanks. I had a similar discussion with Dr. Dick about why I only saw this combo on CHs . . . and his conclusion was exactly the same.
