converting from 16" rims to 18"

Has anyone converted their bike from 16" wheels to 18" rear with a 180 back tire and a 19 in front from a 16? I just bought rims and tires and was looking any help i can get.




I haven't done it on a soft tail but one thing to remember is your speedometer will be way off. You will need to get it re-calibrated.

Good Luck with your project Jammer - It shouldn't be too difficult - just make sure the Spacers are all correct and wheels Centered and running True, and the Brakes are functioning 100% Correct and the Drive Belt setup ...
There is a bit involved but Take your Time and Make Sure everything is 100% before heading out for the first ride - Take Extra Caution and make sure it rides well ....
Ride Safe ...
