Question Front Wheel Size Please - before I go crazy!

Hi Folks,

Daft question but can someone tell me the from wheel size of the Bobber BLACK...?

Is is 16" x 3.5"...?

I just spend twenty minuets looking and all I get for wheel size is the original Bobber. Driving me crazy.

Cheers,

Roy

Thanks mate,

Just to satisfy my curiosity what are the wheel sizes of the standard Bobber?

I believe the standard Bobber is 19" x 2.5".

If that is the case the 'width' on both are the same but I thought the BB had a wider wheel???

Cheers,

Roy

The Bobber Black’s (wider) tire is 130/90-16. The standard Bobber tire is 100/90-19. Depending on tire, you can fit several different widths on a 2.5” wide rim.

Thanks for that.

So if I'm understanding correctly both the stock Bobber and Black and the same wheel width size, it's just the 19 vs 16 that is different.?

Cheers,

Roy

The rear wheels and tires are the same on both models. The fronts have different wheel/tire sizes. The Standard’s tire is taller but thinner. The Black is shorter but wider.

You could go with a slightly wider wheel up front, say 16x3.0 and still fit the same 130/90x16 tire. I believe the max wheel size for that tire is 3.5”.
