Will I have issues if I try to use a 16 inch fatboy Rim on the rear of my 79??

I'm doing a rebuild, my rear wheel is shot and I can get this one for 50 bones. I'm just wondering it if I'll have fitment issues. I can't afford to be nostalgic and go buy stock wheels and parts.

The rim where the tire seals is marred badly and also the lip where the hub seals/bearings sit is broken off so I def need a new rim
