I’m trying to find a place to get a 21 inch front wheel for 2009 Boulevard C50t. I’ve done everything I want to do to the bike besides new front fender and 21 inch front. Blacksmith motoring has a kit for 3 grand which Is insanity considering I didn’t even spend that on the bike stock. I’ll post some before and after if the bike. I’ve owned it for 3 mo the and it is already kick a$$!

16 inch apes
Adjustable lowering links
Cobra street rod exhaust
Cobra fi2000 fuel controller
Bluetooth speakers
Barret intake
LED Kit

Maybe a meet and greet ride in the future?
I usually host a Mountainhouse (McConnellsburg, Pa) ride once in a great while!!! Keep you posted!

The aftermarket parts selection for the C50 is sparse. What you see is what you get. Just keep in mind, everything you spend now does not raise the value of the bike one cent, when it comes time to sell. We've had members in the past dump$10 grand in custom work, only to be offended by stock bike pricing when they try to sell.

The 21-inch wheel set-up is on sale! By the time you buy the rim, tire and machine fab the needed parts to get the wheel on and functioning, it will cost some semi-serious cash. One way or another, motorcycles cost to personalize them. If you have your own machine shop, you are ahead of the game.

Buchanan Spokes can lace up a 21 for ya. Just be prepared to spend close to a grand. I had one, sold it during the divorce (it was that, or the bike! lol), and recently built a 19 for the bike. I loved the 21, but as many miles as I log in a month, the 19 made more sense... lil wider than the 21 rims that I could afford at the time, plus it's gotta be reliable and comfortable. You feel every bit of road running a 21 on these things, and braking power is noticably reduced due to rotating mass

Nope. It's going to be a custom job and it will cost you $$$$.
