How wide tire can fit in a Golden Flash plunger frame without the tire touches the chain?

Thanks/Markus

Yes. but is it possible to use a tire that is 5 "wide?

Must mention. although I'm so ashamed of it as doing that I know on this forum, the most real Bsa enthusiasts that I have a chopper that is Flash based. Have to say in my defense that it was a chopper since the early 70s.

The rear wheel is additionally only 16 "not 19" on this creation.

G'day Marcus. To fit a 5" you would need to offset the rim 1/2" to the right. I think it would be possible but she'd handle like a HD (they did that from the factory on some models).

it may be a chopper but would still be nice to see a picture!

4" rear is probably your realistic limit. might be worth running a narrower chain eg a 520,

 I have a Metzler Enduro 11, 18x4.00", (21.51 x 3.00 front) has about 10mm chain clearance , you may be able to squeeze in a 5.00"-just, with a little offset which I don't recommend- best trim the tread overhang maybe *eek*(did I say that!?).

   good luck

I don't know what size it is but this is Rumsam's A10 build on the "un-phased" forum (cars!)



Looks Great
