    Default Sportster Front Wheel Fitment

    Hey all, new member, first time poster. Felt like I've searched everywhere and am at a dead end.

    I came into posession of this wheel:

    https://www.bmikarts.com/19-x-250-Fr...el_p_5475.html

    Site says it fits 74-78 FX & XL with single disc brake. I have a 2002 sportster I'd love to put the wheel on and
    I would like to keep the 6 over I already have on. Has anyone ever done this? Is there a good pre existing way to go about this before I try to fabricate something?

    Thank you!

    The brake rotor is different for the older set-up. The issue would be if your current rotor would fit that new rim bolt pattern and if so will you need spacers behind it.
    The 3/4" axle/bearing should work. Just looked again and not sure if it comes w/bearings.
    Keeping your 6" over is irrelevant.

    Thanks, will hunt down the appropriate rotor for the wheel and space it.
