    Default Looking to swap out my 1992 sportster mag wheel for a 21" spoke. Any suggestions?

    I got a 1992 sportster 1200 with a 19" mag wheel. I'm looking to swap out the front wheel to a 21" spoke wheel. Ive seen that the newer models won't fit the older models. does any one know the correct year that would fit a 92.

    Thank you

    Most narrow glide front ends from the '90s, like yours, came standard with 19" wheels, whether cast or spoked. The XL Custom is an exception, and came with a spoked 21" wheel.
    Through '99, all these wheels had the "narrow" hub with Timken bearings and a 3/4" axle. '00 and up had a ball bearing hub, and still a 3/4" axle for several years. An XL Custom front wheel, either Timken or ball bearing will work for you, or you can find a 19" spoked wheel and change it to a 21" rim and spokes.

    Not that difficult. The 21" wheels from the wide front ends will not fit.
