This was the narrow hub I was looking at:

602473: RevTech Chrome Billet Front Wheel Hubs Fits (2000-03) FXD/FXDC/FXDB/FXDL Models Also Fits (2000-2007) FXR and All XL Mod

My fork legs are from a 2002 Sportster and I have a 3/4" axle with single disc setup...swapping to this hub alone won't be enough? Thanks for the heads up if it will need more work...

I think the bates light is perfect for a narrow glide

What is the right size headlight for a wide glide?

A lot of guys run a 6-1/2" springer headlight.

Mocked up the WCC narrow trees.



Since Boosted Brad has come out with his new Hollowpoint mid controls, I'm not going to waste my time modding the frisco mid controls. His are much nicer than anything I could make myself since I have no access to machine equipment. I'll just swap back and forth between my OEM Softail forwards and the Hollowpoints (which I will buy at a much later time).



Since I'm running forwards once again, it's back to the Sportster-style bars. I want to replace them with genuine Super Dupers at some point; the bends on these aren't quite right but they were cheap so they'll have to do for now. Got more important parts to focus on. Also switched back to my billet grips since I'm not going for the old-school look anymore.

Yeah the wheel will be needing a little machine work done to it for it to work as a narrow glide, swapping from wide glide hub to a narrow glide hub won't do the job!

If I machine the wheel itself down a little more to allow the narrow glide hubs to work, does this mean my wide glide hubs would no longer be good? Or could I still use them if I added slightly wider axle spacers, and maybe spaced the caliper over a bit to stay centered over the rotor?

Mockup with my new wheels. Thanks again Matt. Still waiting on bolts for the triple trees to come in or I'd mock up the forks too.

Those look like 53's, but really don't either.

Dismantled the front hub and mocked up the fork tubes. Switched my fork legs to the black ones I purchased a long time ago to match the trees. Don't have my narrow hub yet, bubble wrap is just holding wheel in place and protecting it from scratches.







Looking to run my 6.5" Springer heeadlight instead of the smaller Bates unit, like many shop bikes. Light looks good from certain angles...



...and absolutely crappy from the side.



Probably gonna send the bucket out to be dechromed so I can hack away and fab a new mount. Unless of course someone has a line on a shop bucket...

Got spherical bearings pressed into my shift rod and got it installed finally.



For those of you needing to do this, you can press them in cold using a good vice. Use a socket as a drift, make sure bearing starts in straight, and use wood on the rear face to protect the aluminum. I made the mistake of using aluminum on the rear face and I gummed up one end of the rod. Wood is more forgiving and will straighten out the bearing even if it goes in a little cocked. I can probably re-polish most of the damage to my shift rod so it's not too bad.

Got my axle welded up as well. Asked my instructor to run a root pass (not taking any chances with the axle's integrity) and I filled in the rest.

They are 8" risers, but not WCC. Some generic set I found on ebay. Bars are Santee XLX, also not WCC.

Chassis Design Co. supposedly makes a set of bars identical to the Super Dupers, has anyone who has owned both bars been able to verify if they are indeed the same dimensions? I'm interested but down want to drop another $100 on bars that won't look like the real deal.
