I have a front disc brake iron head wheel with 3/4 tapered bearings. I'm trying to put it on a front end with a 5/8 axle. I've taken it to HD, and a couple bearing shops and no one can seem to find a bearing that will work for it. I know i can't be the only guy to do this. So any help? Someone have a link or something to some bearings that would work? Thanks.

Might could try these. I have used reducers to go from 1" to 3/4 axle on my brothers build.

I don't know about the brass ones. The ones I used were steel .

vxb.com I got bearings to go from 5/8th to 3/4 maybe you can find the opposite. cheap prices and fast ship times.
