Anyone do this mod on a Honda Shadow 750? http://www.ss750.net/vtxrim.htm

I came across it but am not qualified to attempt myself. Looking to do it but rather than use the VTX 15 x 4.5 rim on 200 tire want to go with an 18 x 5.5 rim on 200 tire (to have that wide tire lower profile/sidewall look, see attached pic). From what I've read in other online Shadow forums it is doable via the same process, thing is most are in the US :(

Apparently no modification to the swingarm, brakes and suspension needed. Just minor mod to the rear subframe under the fender, possible fendor chop and relocate of the lights/plate.

Looking for a shop in Ontario with the expertise in these type of mods. Thanks!

Talk to Robbie at Rocket Cycle on Oakdale Rd. They even have a VLX for sale right now. He's done frame mods to a few bikes and may be able to help you out.
