have you thought about selling or trading for a custom?

my 2010 1200 low has 16" rear and 19" front wheels.
im gonna swap to a 21" front, cause i prefer the look of a 21".

i was under the impression is had less travel front and rear, but who knows.
i would love to know for sure.
That's something that I might just look into, swapping bikes if I can find one.
