Re:Hi from 'up North' UK... 2 Weeks, 4 Days ago  
Always good to have a new members.
I'm running a Yamaha Raider 21 inch front wheel on my RS and it's a very easy upgrade.
No machining and your stock (oem) calibers work fine.
You would have to change to Raider rotors because the bolt pattern is different than your oem RS rotors.
Hope this helps

Good luck and ride safe

Re:Hi from 'up North' UK... 2 Weeks, 4 Days ago  
Thanks again lads...

@mlharper... cheers for your info. I'm really looking for a spoked wheel, so the Raider swap wouldn't work for me but it looks great on your ride.

I'm thinking about having a s/h 21" rim and hub powder coated black and then having it laced up with either stainless or chrome smooth spokes, or maybe I can find one not too expensive already manufactured like that. The Wildstar I bought only has 3k miles on her and is pretty much original, apart from already being staged and having the fat 250 on the rear that is...so its a bit of a shame to tear her down to give it that 'custom' look, but I already have an Indian chief that I use as an everyday ride, so wanted to put a different stamp on the wildstar. Maybe even transforming it into another bobber..??


Cheers
Chillo

This is where I picked up my spoke wheels. Overseas shipping might be outrageous though.

Hey Chillo, man you bike looks great, sorry I misread your first post.

The EBay site that Firedog posted has some 21 inch wheel for not to bad of a price.

Smokescreen makes spacers for the Harley wheels to fit a Road Star,(I think he still does)

also he can help with any info you may need to get your wheel installed.

Ride safe.
Mike

Thanks Pana, Cike and Curt...

Curt, Bentwaters and Woodbridge. Was Charlie Holt the Dep base commander when you were there? Is that when all the UFO stuff happened in Dec 1980? Also your bike looks cool. I tried to buy a set of Bub Jug Huggers for this Wildstar, but no one had any in stock and I drew a blank on eBay, so I've just ordered a set of V&H short shots...
