    Fat front tire.

    So I am thinking about doing a fat front tire upgrade, I just think it looks badazz. My question is what would I have to change and how do those of you that have them like the way they handle ? If you have pics, please share them. I apologize if there is a thread already on this, I just can't find it.

    It will handle better and be more comfortable. Just put on take-off parts from an Electraglide. See eBay.

    If you have anti-lock brakes you need parts from a bike that has them.

    Your dealer can help.

    I believe you are referring to putting a rear tire on the front and not a 17" electraglide stock front, correct? I believe Yaffe came out with first and now sells a kit.

    There are several companies selling kits to put the fat tires on now. I hear they ride and handle better but have not ridden one myself.
