Nice. I hope to get mine done next week. I'll need to come up with a different set of bolts for the chain adjusters though. Your front fender looks quite a bit more normal than mine

Why not buy your brothers and a used 19" wheel and save some $$$$$

And then you only need to change one tire every year.

That's the same thing I said on Sunday when I noticed I had a flat front tire.
New tube in last night. She's good to go now.

Nothing worse than getting to the last 8" of bead and hearing a hissssssss. My patch kit is in the 4wheeler. which is still at the dealer. Might grab a pair of bicycle tubes tomorrow along with a patch kit. New tires really, really suck.
Even with a small tube it sticks out over the bead
