you need it from the outside of the bearings across right? ( i mean from the outside of the bearings on one side across to the outside of the other side) i'll have both my rims off in the next couple days and can get the info for you but why not just swap out the whole front end IF the neck is close to the same (you could swap out the trees,head bearings,etc....IF that would work?) and then it would just be a matter of spacing and the right axle/bearing combo in the rear.....right? sounds like a bada$$ setup though man. let me know and i'll try and get the info for you.

I measured my spare set of wheels and it's 5 1/2 inches from the outside bearing edge to the same on the other side on the front wheel. With the spacers in place, the distance is 6 1/2 inches.

The rear is 8 inches bearing to bearing with the sprocket carrier in place. With the spacers, it's 9 1/8th inches across.

It should be nice to see those top quality parts on a bike that is a bit more worthy than the Ape. Post up some pics when you are done.
