Thanks fellas... toez71... that is a 21" RC Components Eclipse Hole shot... and I am running a 140/70/21 on it... I just acquired a set of 6 piston calipers and I am thinking of going single sided rotor to open the wheel up on the right side...

That 140/70/21 is a monster! it is the same size as a 23" wheel and tire... completely fills the HD Street Glide front fender up... I used a 5/16" fuel line to space the fender from the tire and fit perfectly... I am currently working on a metal extension for the bottom of the rear fender... I am extending it 5" with the same thickness sheet metal as the factory HD fender... then I will paint the front fender to match the rest of the bike...

yeah, the 140/70/21 is the biggest they make right now... that I know of... I dont know that I would want to go any bigger on a 21" wheel... any bigger and I would just go 23"...

very true,the 120 70 21 feels very unstable after any speed over 75mph at steady cruise speed, so im tempted on jumpin up to that 140 ,but yours looks like it sits nice in there,,may try it,,

BIG difference from the 120 to the 140 in stability... I know you will like it... a bit pricey though at around $175... that the cheapest I could find the Metz 880...

yeah, I have a 2" drop up front as of right now... I am looking at doing the air ride up front as well... I have a firestone single convoluted MC bag out back with a Viair 100c compressor... looking at adding 2 air tanks to supply the front and back... because, when I had to hit the brakes pretty hard the other day (when a blue hair pulled out in front of me) I now have a dimple in the top of my fender from the headlight ring retaining screw... DANGIT...
