    Default ironhead wheel offset

    Does anyone here know if the rear wheel on an early ironhead has an offset hub? I have a stock swingarm with a set of stock spacers and a vtwin repop 16" wheel. When everything is put together the center of the tire is about a quarter inch over to the right. (drum side) I had another wheel from a sporty and it seemed to be the same thing.

    i jusst did a stock drum wheel and i can tell you its a little under 11/4 inches from the outside edge of the sprocket to the outer edge of the wheel if that helps...seems i always have to pull em over awy from the sprocket to center the wheel.

    The only specs I have for lacing a rim to that hub are for stock HD 18" rims. Rear wheel should be centered to your frame so it tracks true with front wheel for best handling . I used a stock 18" rim and trued to HDs specs rim runs dead center in a Paughco frame. 16" rims should do the same.
