Hey:

Anyone know if a DID rear hub and wheel from a 77 will have a fitment problem on a 73? Offset issues that Can't be resolved?

Thanks,

~Rev Mike

Not to answer my own question. But I have an answer for my own question -- but it's Ken's answer from Cycle X change.

Ken says yes and no. The wheel and hub off a 77 (which is stock 17 inches, sez he) will work with the '73. The off set on the motor and wheel in the 77+ years is built into the sprocket assembly. So a person has to take their pre 77 sprocket assembly out of THAT wheel/hub and put it into the 77 hub. Then everything should (in a perfect world) line up. Since we all live in a perfect world -- Piece O'cake.... right?

I'll let you know.

Difference is in the sprocket.....77 ran a 630 and early model ran a 530 chain and the sprockets were offset so a swap would work....with the swap of sprockets
