I am about to go through the same situation. I have a 1993 FXLR, 21 inch front wheel. for narrow glide. I bought a used wide glide front end. I hoped I could just buy a matching wheel, and put it on, and keep my narrow set up in the garage.
I guess I really have to measure, to get the proper wheel, and Bearing combo. I have the axle already,, How did you guys measure the axle,, do I put a tape measure against the outside edge ? or use a flexible tape measure, and wrap it around, measuring circumference.?
that may sound like a stupid question,, but Id really like to make this easy on myself.
So let me ask you-- GYMSBYJO
after you had your axle turned down (at a machine shop, im guessing) the bearings and spacers and everything you got with that wheel.. all worked out.? or did you still have to buy other parts.?
