All who have changed wheels, I’d like to see what you’re running. Really hoping to see a 21” front on a bobber, but I need to see some pics to get ideas.

I have a 19" up front on my bobber with a 130/60/19 tire . The lower profile tire works out to be about the same size as stock wheel and tire. If you purchased a 21" wheel with a 130 /60/21 tire overall you would have a diameter of 27.14 compared to stock at 25.21 . You may need to remove your front fender for this set up to work .

Thanks Dave,

I went with a set of performance machine 18’s. Got a great deal and couldn’t pass them up.

I plan to keep the front roughly the same tire as stock and move up to a 180 in the rear.

The bike definitely sticks out with the larger front wheel. Your bike looks sick!

I wonder the chances of the octane wheels working on a 2021 scout bobber.. any thoughts??
Should be a straight swap. I don't believe they changed anything wheel wise in the models. I also run a set of Octane rims on the scout. Seems like it has a little extra lift and actually prefer the look and feel over stock.
