I know sportscarpat has some nice Sachs / Motobecane Moped's, rear dual drive hubs with built in heavy duty drum brakes.

I'm still researching to find out if those mini bobber rear wheels can fit on the Schwinn Stingray OCC Chopper & XL-Chopper's.

Peace Crazy Horse.
Update for Schwinn StingRay Chopper Builders Fat Rear Tire Upgrade and,

Here's the latest information I have for mounting a Harley-Davidson Dyna Wide Glide rear tire on a Schwinn Stingray Chopper 20-inch X 4-1/4-inch rear wheel.

My 1995 Harley Dyna Wide Glide rear wheel is same size 16-inches as the Schwinn StingRay Chopper rear wheel, so yes you can use the Dunlop Harley Tire shown below.

The answer / information is below
