You can lace it yourself. Not super cheap, but not out of reach if you chose to go that route.
You will lose ground clearance and cornering clearance by going from 21" to 19" -- at the front axle, it will be lower by 1", at the engine cases, about 1/2". Not much, but if it's marginal or clearance is important, it's notable.
When they say Harleys are for 1%ers, I don't think they mean guys who sell crank and get in bar fights any more.
