    For a quick, cheap solution (but with a slightly wider rim) you could use any '00 - up HD narrow glide, ball bearing wheel, with adapter sleeves for the ID of the bearings.

    Not necessarily. There are a wide variety of ball bearings available, but most ball bearings are metric sized, and don't fit an inch sized axle. The HD ball bearings used in their wheels are proprietary. Making sleeves to adapt a 3/4 wheel to a 5/8 axle is easy.

    I realized in the chopper market if someone gets it before you, you're screw so I had to pull the trigger on this one

    Yup, that is a P&P girder, has built-in zero or 10 degree rake option.

    I find deep groove metric ball bearings with 3/4" ID and 5/8 ID easily for springer and girder swaps, so don't worry much about adapting whatever wheel ya got, or get, to fit a 5/8" axle - one example: 6203-2RS-5/8" Sealed Ball Bearing 0.625" x 40mm x 12mm, $10; https://www.bearingscanada.com/6203-...-id-5-8401.htm
    You can even go 16mm ID = 0.6299" with a 16mm axle if the axle holes in the girder are pounded a bit from use. I did that for my brand new Jammer springer to make the axle a tight fit in the rockers, then threaded the ends of the axle to 5/8 UNF threads.
