Guys,

Here's the choice of rear wheels I'm planning on using. 30 or 80 spoke? Which one will match better with a bike spoke wheel?






FRONT WHEEL??? WHICH ONE???

The problem with the 30 is the front wheels don't really match

You can match 80 spokes ...and lacing pattern. I would think that,s your best bet.

When it comes to wheels, I am a less is more guy. If it was me I would go with the 30 spoke rear. A standard HD front wheel would match just fine.

The 30 spoke is my first choice also. I just wanted a close match. Ifbi use the 30 should I use the 52 fat spoke or a traditional 60 spoke

Picked up my frame from Tigman yesterday. He did a great job. Now I've got to get it into roller status.

For what it's worth, I say go with the 30 spoke rear and any standard HD front 40 or 60. The frame looks awesome. I'm tuned in. Never been a fan of fat spoked wheels. Maybe some more pics of the frame would be good, don't see many trikes here.

I'd go with the top choice..........30 spoke. Like Flysocal said, less is more! It works for the ladies so why not for choppers? If you're wanting to keep it old school cool go with less...................IMHO!!!!!!!!

Tru spoke makes a 50 spoke that looks like the 30 and Maclean makes a 30 spoke. I think that's the look I'm going to go with. I'm looking at using an inverted springer. I want the trike to have a 50's look to it. I'm thinking about using an inverted springer in the front.

Spartacus I was in your neck or the woods today (sunday) chicks for god knows why every time I go there I have an issue with the police god was on my side we ate and left no police at all the food wasn't worth the ride so we went to the cat walk then keepers in milford that made the ride worth it for what its worth I also like the 30 spoke its more old school not the low rider 80 plus spoke look the trike looks great nice job not to many out on the road at all it will look great good luck best to you and yours

Chicks is not worth the money and definately not worth dealing with the West Haven cops..Cat walk and keepers still around? Haven't been there in years. I'm probably going with the 30 spoke

Should I go with a 21" or 23" front wheel? The rear tires are going to be a 30" height

With 21" rim and tire total diameter will be not more than 27.6". It might not level with the 30" in the rear. Looks like 23 will bring it home, just about the same diameter( indeed depending how your frame was set)
