It seems like everyone wants a bit bigger-than-stock front wheel on his or her bagger. And why not? America is all about freethinking and independent decision-making, right? Some of these wheels have just plain gotten silly with 32- and 30-inch varieties hitting the scene. Doug McGoon of Mad Wheels has been one of the mainstays of the über big-wheel bagger craze since its inception, and most of the big-wheeled bikes we feature in Hot Bike can be traced back to him in some way.
So Doug went to work designing 21-inch front wheels that closely match H-D’s production wheels. The first of them is the Reinforcer that you see here. It has a very similar design and texture to the 19-inch H-D Enforcer wheel that comes stock on many model baggers, but the Reinforcer is 45-percent different due to patent and trademark laws. Follow along as we make a small change to our 2016 Road Glide that makes a big difference to the overall look of the bike.
