My feeling is that a 21" front tire doesn't give you much of a contact patch. If it was me I'd look for an 18" rim so that I could run a 4.00 x 18 Avon SM or a Metzeler 4.00 x 18 Block K, as well as drop the front end in order to reduce the rig's trail (and steering effort). An Avon SM in 5.00 x 16 on a 16" spoked HD wheel might even be better for the contact patch and the "vintage" look, as well as being easier to find. I haven't owned a rig in almost 15 years so maybe there are better options out there that still take advantage of Harley's parts interchangeability. Your bike should look really sweet with any of the chairs that you've mentioned.
