19-21 inch front wheels

Has anyone tried this out yet? Where might i find a bigger, narrower front rim. Can any of you forsee problems regarding clearance issues?

Gain ground clearance at the front as well asthe fact that it looks good. The softer rake and trail would make it more stable on motorways

That looks interesting. Though it isn't just a bigger tire, it is a completely different front end of the bike. I wonder how it rides.

As good as springer front ends look they just dont handle as well as telescopic forks, and are maintanance heavy. Also trying to keep cost down. The limited fork travel would make it viable to have a big front wheel though
