Hey guys I am wanting to run a coker replica tire on a 73 sporty. My question is how wide of a tire can i get on the stock wheel or could i get a wider wheel with mechanical brake so i could run a wider tire???

You can fit a wider 16" rim and run a 5.00-inch or 130/90 or maybe a 140/90 tire pretty easy.
Othewise the old 18" rims were usually good for about 4.50 inch. Dunno about modern tyre sizes on the 18 though.
In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is.
