*** Finally a FAT TIRE swing arm conversion kit for older Sportsters ***

You see so many custom Ironheads out there, but how do you see running a 200 Series Rear Tire??

This kit is for Sportsters from 1954-78 and includes:
Heat-Treated Offset Sprocket
Two Shock Studs
Spacers
Two chain-adjusters
Bolt set for chain-adjusters
3/4" Stainless Steel Rear Axle

You will be able to run a 180 tire on a 6" rim or a 200 tire on a 5-1/2" rim. This kit is high quality European made, not some crap from China. I spent almost 6 months of research and partnering to come up with a Kit for Fat Tire conversions for older Harleys.
I am not a commercial retailer, but run a small shop that only does older Harley customizations. The kit costs are $875.00 plus shipping. There is a min imum two week delivery time.

I had to agree to a small limited production in order to get mine fabricated, so if they are well received - there will be more produced, if not - that's all folks...Thanks

Alright, to those that kept asking me for a picture of the kit...here it is as promised. I'll get some pics of my Ironhead with the kit, Quickbob tank, Drag bars, LePara solo seat and the rest of the "goodies" I have on it soon. The swing arm is heavy duty thick steel and machined nicely.

Dang! Don't go putting functionality in front of form.
Gotta look cool when you cruise the Jr High School and the Dairy Queen

Ever ride an Electra-Glide before the redesign? There is a very good reason the chopper guys back in the 50/60/70's HATED swing-arm frames!! Compared to those things a Sportster WAS a TRUE SPORT-TOURER.
