What size of wheels and tires for a CFL
 
Hi everybody

I started to build a cfl 4 up with a springer front end ..but I need some help for... lot of things I guess ..starting with the wheels and tires.

I want a 200 tire but it s the only thing a know.
And nothing about diameter high thickness

But I want the tire very close to the fender

Does anybody can advise me on size, brand, models, any kind of detail?
Here after links to a chopper very close to what I planned.

Have a very good day and thanks for your help

Niko

The factory bikes used these tire sizes on most CFLs with 200mm frames:

Metzeler ME880 Marathon front tire: 80/90-21 on a 21x2.15 wheel
Metzeler ME880 Marathon rear tire: 200/50R18 on a 18x5.5 wheel

You can also use a 90/90-21 or MH90-21 up front, which both offer a little better traction versus the 80/90-21.

If you run a zero degree flex sportbike Metzeler rear 18" x 200 tire you can mount your fender very close to it. The side walls have very little flex if any noticeable movement which allow it to not rub on the fender.

For the rear Id recommend the Metzeler ME888 200/50 x 18. They are a zero growth tire so you can put the fender close to it without worrying. In the front you can 80/90. 90/90 or 120/70 x 21. Metzeler makes all 3 sizes.....

18 x 5.5 rear wheel
21 x 2.15 wheel for up to 90/90
21 x 3.5 for 120/90

Great!
What do you recommend for a springer front end (Denver chopper ) like on my avatars?
Any idea of brand a models for a good price? 80 or 60 spokes

Have good day!

...i want to put a break on the front end.. exactly the same as the picture

I'm pretty sure that's a Freddy Hernandez springer. Couldn't tell you the length, every builder seems to measure their springers differently. But the frame looks like a 4 up.

Follow up question on the 250mm CFLs. Can someone advise what size rear tire was used?

pushrod243 01-07-2020 11:15 AM

Most likely Avon. Metzeler only offered a 240 and a 260. The Metzeler 260 was designed to go anywhere an Avon 250 was used it was a tad smaller than the Avon.
