Iron head wide tire kit

Any one seen or have a old pre 84 iron head sporty with a 230/240 wide tire kit installed? I tried searching but came up empty and havent seen any for sale anywhere. Is there even a such beast or is the kits out there just for evo's.

This quesion has been asked before with no respose. I haven't seen any kits or pics of a wide tire iron head but, you could be the first to do it. Don't let the lack of info discourage you there is plenty of technical help here to get you through this kind of modification. Good luck and welcome to Club Chopper

How differnt are the new to late swing arms anyway? Could one just cut of the pivot piont where the swing arm mounts to the frame and reweld them onto the wide tire swing arms that are out there for the newer bikes.
Ive personaly never seen a old to new swing arm side by side nor ever really paid that much attantion to them to see the differnce but couldnt it work if weld up with a tig and maybe some extra gussetts weld in.

I don't think the swingarm is gonna be your biggest problem.
Finding an offset front sprocket for proper alignment on an ironhead may be tough. I'm about to do the same thing on an 87 sportster (althought I'm only going to a 180 tire) by grafting on a buell swingarm but, parts are a little more available.

Ironhead Dragster 12" dragtire

Yo what up dave from DB, its been a while since i talked to you, at metal morphosis cycles we are working on a kit for ironhead bikes to run up to a 280 tire, the only problem is you are not going to find any frames set up for any bigger tire then a 200, so for our new project we are working on we are doing a dragster ironhead stroker using a mickey thomson 11.5 drag tire from a car, this was the reason we designed the offset drive. Most of the CAD work is started and we will be making it in the next weeks, i didn't want to run a jackshaft like others have done, i will be posting more details soon. All the parts are in so the project will really be rollin we are shootin for about deadline of march. Check out the cover and centerfold of www.100-biker.co.uk for pictures of our ironhead and this was not the bike doing the burn out on the carpet in the sturgis house that was our singlesided dragbike , o and Dave i have it all on video so expect it on our web site soon plus i have it on tape when you throw the TV and use that shovel to destroy the walls.
