    I remember "Phat Cycles" here in LA used to sell these super wide "Fat Albert" cruiser rims... I don't know if they still do?

    Something else to consider... you're gonna have a helluva time getting the drive chain to clear a tire that wide!!!

    I had to offset the engine & sprocket to clear the 3" rear tire on the Nirve Switchblade that's on my website!

    Thanks RedB66 That's the rim i'm looking for (and polished too, nice)
    The red ones in the picture that I posted are from Germany, and Choppers U.S. LLC is located 30 miles from my house.

    Venice Boy, I am going to try and lace the rim to a hub motor so no sprocket/chain problems, Thanks
