    Sweet, good to hear! Tire is due in Monday so I'll put it all together. Got the wheel, hub, brake and sprocket on bike now and all fits with a couple washers. Even use my 50stunt chain guard.

    I'm sure I'll figure it out Monday when I put the tire on, but I'm curious since I have time to ask... Which half of the Z50 wheel goes on what side? This is how I have it now and I think it's right, but wanted to ask since I have a few days before hand and would rather do the tire install once. Thanks!!

    Valve side is on the brake hub side... Looks like you got it the correct way around

    That's sick man, looks fun!

    I've been back and forth to go same route you did or go the 10" route... I almost bought the tires, but held off to see what the 10" wheel looks like. I have Z50 forks with a disc brake setup sitting on my floor right now and fixing to put those on to see how the wheel looks on the front and any clearance issues. Also have 50stunt triple on the way so I can run same bars I have now and I'll swap the HD springs and bushings to the Z50 before installing.

    Here's some pictures of the Kitaco 2.5" wheel with a 120/70 Zippy tire on it. How it sits right now, the clearance between the tire and swingarm is VERY close, but I also have right at 1/2" worth of adjustability further back.... I"m still undecided on which size wheels I want, but pushing for 10" right now. It'll also allow me to run a disc brake on the rear later down the road if I wanted. Damn choices and I need to order something ASAP so I can get this stuff back together and try it out!

    Wheels are the same size as stock, but mine has been street legal for past couple years and I've rocked the stock wheels till now. The only thing you need is DOT wheels, all lighting, horn and that's about it. Maybe couple hundred in costs for everything.

    I got a hell of a deal on the Kitaco wheel and tire on ebay for $61. Trying now to locate a front wheel

    The Z50 wheel will not fit on the stock XR/CRF50 front forks, they are too narrow for the wider wheel. I used the Z50A front forks with the XR/CRF +1 HD fork legs and springs on the XR/CRF frame. It is a direct bolt-up, as seen on the bike below.

    Actually, that's not entirely true, the front forks from the '68-'71 hardtail Z50a models have a taller steering stem and do not fit on the XR/CRF50 frames
