Wesexcellence did on a GL1800. Used a raked (trike) triple tree. I don't think he's been on here for years. Very talented guy. Did top end car audio installs. He has some YouTube stuff as well. Good Luck!

Wesexcellence, not Weexcellence, sorry.

YouTube page-

I'm not getting any pics, 2013 post. Text may be helpful though.

Big wheel project update...

FYI- Searching on here and other forums kinda suck. I always use Google.

Thanks. I figured there would be someone who did it, because they sell the 21 at RC components.

Weird, right? I'm thinking they only sold one. Never seen anyone else with one on here or anywhere, and I live on here. I also go to a dozen+ bike shows and gatherings a year. Wes's is the only one I seen.

Seen a 18" 180 series tire on the front of a two wheeled F6B. Front end off a Hannigan trike. A guy in our WI group has a Hannigan Trike with that front end. Kinda cool. Some of the trike kit manufactures have some trick looking stuff that can be adapted to two wheels with a little imagination, and not to mention...cash.

Maybe gone !!!

He did a RTE with us in Florida several times and the last time (2013 - 2014) admitted he had major heart issues. He also discussed moving to North Carolina if I remember correctly. Has a daughter that was going to school in NC and he and his wife wanted to get back to the mountains.

I hope and pray his ticker didn't give out. He and his wife are / were super people and I really enjoyed talking with them...

Thanks,
Me !!
