Honda Shadow Spirit 750 VTX Rim Mod

GoogleCustom Search

This mod takes a wider 52 spoke rim from a Honda VTX 1800 and re-lace it to the stock Shadow Spirit Hub to allow for a wider tire on the rear.

Here are some pictures of this mod so far, more to come as it progresses

I also modified the subframe under the rear fender to allow for more clearance, especially on the left side of the bike...

This is it after I chopped the rear portion off, from behind the second bolt hole...
