18 inchers on our 37

Tim threw a set of cad plated 18 inch wheels on our 37 today. When we bought the bike it had 16 inch rims on it, and they looked terrible. The rims were from 1948, so the original owner had put them on after world war 2.

Holy Moly!!!!!!! This looks so much better.

Down side.

The fellow that we bought the bike from had re plated the original air cleaner , and it was way to shiny for the rest of the bike. I ran one of my reproduction 6 inch air cleaners last summer, and this year I put on this original air cleaner. It was missing 3 hooks, so I had to drill into the backing plate and set it up for some self tapping screws.
