Hello all,

I just signed up for this forum and ready to flood you with the questions :)

Anyway, few years back i accuired a pile of parts that used to be a 1960 XLCH in a custom rigid frame with custom made tank and fenders....
However, the top end was blown, carburetor MIA,
front end and wheels are gone. Yet i still decided to put it back together.... Man needs a hobby, all right ? :)

I got the motor deal down since i have worked with bikes for quiet some time, so i know what i am doing, now, the frame, wheels and so on is still a little foreign to me since i come from one of those Metric countries so rake degrees and stretch length do not mean anything to me :)
Somebody care to explain ?

I was able to find manufacturer of the frame - American Legend (some modifications were done to it.)

The one at the very bottom - P/N 95-004

Now, i am trying to figure out what is the max size of a rear tire i can go for and what i the wheel size... (i think it had 16" in it before).
And then, after i figure out the size for the rear wheel/tire i will have to pick the front end. I was thinking of going with Springer, since the look of those is absolutely stunning. But what kind of wheel should i get ? I still want the bottom of the frame be parrallel to the ground.. hehe

Anyway. Sorry for the long post. Looking forward to see your thoughts.
