jroberts1968 wants to know Dino or Syn?
Just got my Softail back togther

Started life as a Night Train, did a little of this and a little of that.

First set of pics I had a Dyna Wide Glide Front End on her with a 19" 40 spoke hoop


.



Second set of pics are it's current front end Fat Boy with a 21" 60 spoke hoop. The wider taller tire carves the road nice. I also changed the bars, risers, and mirrors. Installed 2.5" froward control plates, and wrapped the pipe.

Why did you swap the front end? It looks out of place kinda like it was put together out of a couple wrecked bikes. The bars just don't look right. I don't like it at all. Sorry. I'm sure it will get looks though.

I hate the narrow look of the original HD front end. I wanted a more robust look. There are two types of rider Traditional and Non Traditional. There are two types of gun guys as well shooters and tacti-coolers.

Kinda like a below

The bottom one just don't look rite, nothing wrong just not for me.

Kinda curious about what you meant in the first pic about the dyna front end. The stock front end on a train and a WG are essentially the same. WG doesnt come with a 19" hoop.
I want to change the back fender at some point too. Just havent hit on the setup I like.

I installed the 19" hoop first and didn't like it. Changed back to a wider 21". I miss spoke.
