Exclamation ***ANYBODY CUT/MAKE CUSTOM WHEELS?***

I'm wondering if anybody knows of a place in Texas that can Cut/Make Custom Wheels to any dimension? Basically like you see Orange County, West Coast, Boyd Coddington doin in the Water Blast Machine (Dont know the correct term?!?!?) I want certain wheels for the Harley but nobody sales them in a size that will bolt up directly. I'm looking for just a sold flat wheel for the front and back. Just like this but will powdercoat different color

Actually wheels are cut on a 5-7 axis CNC machine. (maybe a 3 by it being a blank wheel, but not totally sure)

Are you sure no one makes a solid blank for the HD? Seem like to popular of a wheel on the most popular brand not to be commercially available. If one-off wheels are the only option, hope your pockets are really deep and enjoy waiting months for arrival.

Or just do this:

1. Buy the blank with your sizes.. example: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...d=110584569148

2. Take to just about any machine shop and have your bolt pattern drilled out.

Well everybody makes these wheels for the Softails, Dynas, Touring etc. but not for a Sportster. I want these solid rims but in black and the same size as the stock ones so everything bolts up directly and fits. The front are 19'' x 2.5" and the rear is 16'' x 3.0''

These people sell quite a few blanks. Although your sizes aren't listed maybe they just haven't updated their site or can point you in the right direction...

You could actually cut the wheel on a waterjet machine also. As long as the nozzle maintains a minimum distance of .125" from the surface being cut. I guess it would depend on the taper of the wheel. Metal cutting specialties may be able to do it but you would need to provide a CAD drawing of the pattern. Waterjet is cheaper than milling so it maybe something to look into.

Last contact I had with them was Keven Corcorran 713-466-8545. He can tell you what information you need to provide. If the wheel is a complex design you may want to look into FEA analysis with ProE or similar. Just to make sure it can handle the weight of the bike.

lol No i just want a blank wheel that I tend on PC'n black, with the bearings and axle etc. to fit my bike without modification. So basically they would have to shave down the middle part of a wider wheel to make it fit my axle etc.
