We often get asked if HHI sells our NATIVE brand wide front tire kits. I, Paul Richards of Native Custom Baggers, would like to set the record straight on this topic.
HHI kits are not and have never been the same wide tire kits as we at Native offer. We did agree a couple years ago that HHI could sell our wide tire kits but it didn't turn out as expected. HHI does build the triple trees for our PRO kit and we ORIGINALLY supplied them with our stamped fenders but they ended up making most of the other parts themselves and we had NO control of what they ultimately included with their kits which is a problem for us here at Native because quality control is very important to us. After we started receiving calls from people that purchased a PRO style kit from HHI that was missing the NECESSARY notched slider covers, we notified HHI to stop using our NATIVE name on their wide tire kits. Now all of our wide tire kits that ship to our dealers and our retail customers come straight from NATIVE so we can make sure all the correct parts and detailed instructions are included. We DO NOT have distributors because we prefer to build relationships with each of our dealers and retail customers as well to better serve them. This message is not meant to bash HHI by any means. We just want to clear up the confusion because we constantly hear that people think they sell our NATIVE wide tire kits which is NOT the case.
Some people have also reported to us that at some of the bike rallies a certain company has been MISINFORMING the public that NATIVE copied them on the Bagger wide tire kits which couldn't be more untrue. NATIVE began installing 180mm front tires on HD touring models in 2006 and we have been promoting our wide front tire KITS since 2012 which means that we have FAR more experience in creating and installing Bagger wide front tire kits than ANY of our competitors. NATIVE also offers the most fender options, biggest wheel selection (including factory style wheels) and the greatest kit selection of ANYONE. Soon our NATIVE kit selection will grow even larger with the addition of the COMPLETELY BOLT-ON 20" and 21" x 180mm kits!
