I am somewhat overwhelmed by the many parts required to build a chopped bagger.
If you were to start buying and stacking parts for a 26'' SG, where do you start. Most expensive or hardest to get? I am sure this topic has been beat up many time. Anyone has a link to this discussion with list of parts and vendors.

This maybe a dumb question, but do most guys buy a mathcing set of wheels for their bikes or do they not make matching wheels for the larger wheels 26'' wheels. I never here any talk of rear wheel or see pictures of rear wheels other than talk of using a 200 in the rear with the 2009-13 models.

Rear wheel doesn't show much with stretched bags, especially when air ride is used and dumped while parked. Just an additional cost that will be seen very little.

Would go with the wheel first as well if you had to start with the most expensive part you are going to be buying for this project.

But for the times it is seen, a matching rear wheel looks much more finished and professional. The least a person should do is match the finish. If running a chrome front wheel, at least chrome the stock rear wheel. Same for powder coat. That finish HD puts on their stock wheels looks like shit IMO.

Easy Zach.. I have that shitty stock black wheel... No one sees my wheel!
:) I have 8 inch bags I'm less then 2 inches of the ground
I will powder coat it when tire needs replacement until then. That bitch can stay there and get dirty! Lol

If you're going to powder coat it then you must agree a little that the factory finish is shit. LOL

I agree, and no offense to anyone who hasnt replaced rear wheel, jmo, I see bikes that are out of control sweet lookin, in the upper $50,000+ range, I dont care how much u c the rear wheel, the minute I see that it doesnt match, its an instant turn off to the bike, lacks attention to detail imo, if I was a guy that said yay or nay workin for a mag, it would b a nay for the bike, if you spend that kind of money on a bike why not finish it? Not tryin to offend anyone or bash them, im just giving my take on that. Attention to deatail is everything....

I know how this feels...

And this doesn't include the wheels, rotors, HHI brakes, extended bags, lids and custom liners.

I agree. Unfortunately for me, I bagged a softail. So I had no choice but to match the rear wheel, brake rotors, calipers and pulley. I have no side panels to hide anything, even with air ride dumped all the way down.
