I just put this up here just for peoples info. If this is your thing. 
I was amazed that the stock swingarm is so wide and can accept a wheel that large. It would have to be one of the easiest 240 mods ever, a wheel and rear fender.

Hey yeah I reckon handling might suffer [biggrin] But for someone that's into the showy, all show no go type thingy stuff, they will be drooling.
The rear swingarm has so much clearance, is what amazes me, its like they made it for a big wheel to be fitted.
I wont be fitting one though, buts it good to know you can if you want too.

I’ve emailed them today lol 😂, to get a price on the rim and belt guard as separate components without the rear fender etc in the kit, I’ll make my own rear gaurd up from a blank.
Yep I’m sure it will have some effect on handling but for a Sunday cruiser as it will be for me personally I’m not that concerned and damn it will look phat with a Tank Machine style cycle gaurd.

Was a possible consideration until I saw the price $2495 guess that is USD also but would definately look great.

The following advertisement is not my bike, but just thought it was appropriate to share with those discussing the 240mm rear tyre conversion:

Looks phat!!, I’ll have my 8.5inch rim kit on Wednesday!, got my tire already, can’t wait to see it on there, makes the stock tire look like a pizza cutter! 482B556D-A69B-48D5-B27B-96E4BEEF691D.jpeg

That 240mm rear tyre looks awesome and would definitely suit a Scout Bobber perfectly.  I wonder how this conversion would look on an Indian Red over Thunder Black Scout and whether it would spoil the look of my bike?

not sure about looks, but I ride with a guy on a Harley breakout, with a 240 rear tyre and he can't corner for shit.
