Anyone have any info on these rims. What type of bike are they from and where can I get them?
I think they are from a later Road King. Thanks in advance.

Ok the 16" and 18" 12 spoke mag wheels used to be made by American Racing but Performance Machine bought the moldings and made them for awhile before giving up on them because of the labor involved. Not sure if the ones pictured are current or early model since both companies use the same castings.... A company called Radir currently makes a version of them: http://www.chopcult.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=32841&stc=1&d=1355367941
that you can find here: http://www.radirwheels.com/wheels.htm
and ET Wheels makes there own version..http://www.chopcult.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=32842&stc=1&d=1355368181
and you can find those here: http://www.team3wheels.com/gasser.html
So now you can find them used by name, or new. Good luck.

Wheels shown on the bike in the photo are Halibrand 12 spoke wheels. They were not originally made for bikes, but were modified to fit.

Ha.... yeah, those wheels are rare as shit, you're looking at $800-1000 for a piece for those original AR or PM cast wagon wheels on eBay.

Search "spindle mount wheel" And you will find the start of them. You will have a lot of machining to do to get them on a bike properly.

Oh, I had had coffee nose. Road Kings huh?

There is another wheel similar to the Halibrands that is bike specific. That would be the stock wheels off a VRSCR, (Street Rod):
