No need to buy a Harley when you could just buy a spirit VT750C2 and get the same effect without the leaks.

I guess you have a VT750DC.

I believe the standard method to accomplish this is to get a vT750C2 21" rim and inner and outer spokes and lace it to your hub.
You will have to change the fender or rework the mounts.
Check for height and clearance when picking a tire.

There are at least two ways to get the 21" on the front. Simple and easy is to buy a C2 front wheel, flip it and you're done. Other is a HD 21", turn your axle down to .75" or swap to a 20cm bearing. Shim the brake caliper with washers and cut some custom spacers. I went the HD route front and back.

If you're changing to a 21" front wheel, won't you also have to change out the front fender to match? I don't think the 21" wheel will fit under the 19" fender, or will it?

Fender works with no problem. Elongate the holes in the brace is all that is needed.

Thanks!! What size wheel did you go with on the rear? Is going with the HD wheel a difficult mod?

I have 18x5.5 on the back. The front is easier than the back. You do lose the speedo but can make it work either on the front or move it to the back wheel. The back gets a little more difficult depend on on how you go about you brake set up and sprocket spacing as well as the axle spacers.
