Builders have found a new way to rejuvenate and improve the overall look of their custom bikes. After focusing during years on the rear wheel and experimenting with diameter and width to the point of exhausting all possible rideable options, the new cool thing is to use taller front wheels. And in many cases, not all, it’s both an aesthetic improvement while keeping the bike perfectly rideable. Hence the 23″ and 26″ front wheel pushing for a new generation of tires and fenders.
So, in the next months, expect the industry to multiply the options available to dress your new taller wheel, either 23″ or 26″. One of them is Eddie Trotta’s front fenders that he chose to propose in heavy duty composite fiberglass to keep your front forks as light and possible and not add close to 18 pounds to it.
They wrap a full 180-degree and perfectly fit the radius of all 23″ & 26″ wheel/tire combos on the market. They are bolt-on fenders on all Harley-Davidson forks and most customs. Also available are 21″ front fenders in 2 widths. At Thunder Cycle Designs. 954-763-2100.
