SELF INTRODUCTION: I worked on, bikes since I was 14, I progressed to cars when I hit the age of 16, now at 52 I find bikes more rewarding to build and with less space now to store my toys ( 3rd house, also the smallest garage) I use parts from anything that I can find to fit, my builds and am rapidly becoming a decent tig welder. Still I dont know everything and find it expensive to build from a catalog. so that is why I am here for the second time. I can only imagine what happened to my old post since I cant find them and very few of the old crew that used to be on here. maybe we can all come back on and share all that knowledge we acquired over the years of building? xp

OK I have a Donnie Smith girder and it needs a fairly narrow hub to date I have only found the HD hub to be 4.5-4.75" wide is there a 4" wide hub out there ?
I am also using a 3/4" axle

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Best, Bob Davidson

Yeah I talked to Donnie, ( nice helpful guy) said that after cci bought the rights to the girder it was a mixed bag after that and the measurements were all over the place. So what I did (the answer) is I used a dyna front 21"wheel had a custom machined axle made ($50) and it fits like a glove. still there is a brake clearance issue but it think I can just fab up a custom caliper mount and be done with it. UNLESSS there is an offset 10.5"rotor for a hd out there somewhere in the eather........ Thanks for all the replies !!!!!!!!!
