I feel kind of stupid asking this question, since I sold off my K model books and early Sportster books. I need the centering specs for K models for both 18" and 16" rear wheels for lacing purposes. Can anyone help ? A sketch or illustration would be awesome but specs with detail will work as well. Thanks, Pa

Just make sure it lines up with the centreline of the frame and you can't go wrong.

The K/ Sportster hub width is the same as Big-Twin, the one flange is just reversed. The specs from a BT manual will work. Or just measure a BT wheel and copy it!
