I bought this 85 flhtc an I'm planning a cheap rebuild. I have no experience in bike builds but have a vast knowledge in auto. I'm wanting to put a road king front end on this bike with a 23 inch wheel. My issue is the bike has a wide glide front end now is there a newer front end that will interchange?

That thing has a ton of miles on it. I think I would do a motor rebuild first.. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif) Seriously though I don’t quite understand your question. Wouldn’t you be looking for an EVO Roadking front end of about the same year? I think you may have to rake the neck to get room for the large wheel. Check YouTube on large front wheel install???
