Default 21" wheel on turquoise and cream?

Anyone put a 21 on this color combination? If so, post up a pic. I cant seem to locate one. I would be interested to see how a 21 would look up front (maybe a fat spoke one) and how bad it would look leaving the stock rear for the time being. There is lots of rear wheel showing so I can imagine it may not look 2 good without changing out both.

My response is similarly unhelpful, but I think that the turquoise and cream RK is the best color combination Harley ever put on a motorcycle, and it looks just right on that particular bike.

My two baggers are black and stock, so far as wheels are concerned, so I don't know anything about wheel swaps.

I agree with Twinrider. It's an opinion, but 21"ers don't belong on tourers. Get a wide glide or something if you want that look. 18" looks good however. Just my $0.02.

Just lower your fender. Give it the bigger tire look. Just an idea.

I say go for it...Your sled with a 21" up front would look sweet. Make sure to get a 3.5" wheel for your big bike. The tire size is going to be a 90/90/21 if your gonna stick with a white wall...21" wheel would tuck nicely under your fender...

IMO...a lowered fender looks like $hit...but who am i? nobody

I dont like the look of a lowered fender either. Just doesn't look right.

21in wheels are growing on me. I think the right spoked wheel would look good. Just stay away from a gold and chrome combo. lol.

I think the the color of your bike looks great.

I run a 21" X 3.5 with fat spoke rim with an Avon 90/21 I didnt have to lower the fender or anything & it Rides really smooth becuase the Rim is so wide.
