I'm getting ready to do this same conversion on my 01.

Already got the calipers and the rear bracket.

Looking for a nice set of 07 Street Glide wheels locally so I dont have to pay for the shipping... (or 08's but then I have to do bearings... )

Its either 08's and bearings or 07's and rotors... lose lose...  :(

If you go the route that has you needing rotors you'll probably spend just a little more overall (getting some nice rotors).  But you'll get to choose the rotors separately so will get to select something you really like.

^that sounded really good in my head--who knows if it works out that way in real life^

Having to deal with such a localized market for easy shipping has to put a crimp in the cheap parts market.  And decent chrome shops on your particular island if you do find something worth using?

Chrome shops? what are those?  :soapbox:

Nope, none of those here either... this rock (or gathering of rocks has some serious disadvantages)

Afraid of that.  The state's environmental regs being as stiff or even stiffer than most not surprised you don't have any options.  Chrome shops are fewer and fewer everywhere in the lower 48 too.  Oh well, sooner or later the wheel Fairy will find something for you.

Thats why PC is a popular choice among local builders.

The salt air is harsh enough but add the fact no local chrome shops and that makes it even worse.

Cheap chrome rears its ugly head really fast!

twolane, I stated elsewhere it has more to do with the heavy metals in the discharge to the wastewater system that is a problem.

If you could come up with a way to pre-treat prior to disposal it could still be viable.

(Or consume as much of the metal in solution during the electro process there isnt any left to travel downstream to the treatment facilities) I suppose a similar opposing electrical ion positive/negative action may be able to do what is needed.

If not the most modern technology is membrane filtration but for heavy metals it may be a cost prohibitive process unless you use it for an entire industrial process for pre-treatment.

The good thing is the discharge is near ZERO, the bad thing is it isnt cheap.
