A buddy has a 8 up narrow front end,with a 21inch wheel and brakes.He wants my wide front end.
My front end is really nice,you can't tell so much in the shitty pics.I spent a lot of time on those twisted spokes,it's clean as shit.the tubes and lowers are really clean and everything works .anyway I'm thinking about a trade for fronts,I like a narrow front on a sporty .we,ll see if his is as good.Anyone have any pics of an ironhead with a 8 up front on a stock frame? I've seen them I'm going for that early 70,s look,I guess I'm more interested in handling issues.

if you mean eight over on the front end, this is my friend JG's ironhead, built by speedmetal.

it's got an 8 over, but I'm not sure if its a weld on hard tail on the stock front or an entirely new hardtail.
