Default 23 inch front wheel on the way!!!

so after wanting new wheels for a long time and drooling over all the custom rims on other bikes i finally pulled the trigger on a bad a$$ 23 inch front rim. there are a few bikes on the forum that run 21inch wheels and they look great but i have always wanted a really large front wheel. as far as i know there is only one warrior in the world running a 23 inch front and thats the one Matt Hotch built for the biker build off. so im excited to throw that big meat on the front of the monster.

23 front with a 17 or 18 rear.... IDK will that look good? that's a big diffrence the one Matt Hotch built had a 20" rear going to have to see that when you get it. might be awesom.

I think you will have to rake the front end,and get extended forks to get that 23 to fit without bottoming out.I don't know if the mortons 7* trees will be enough,but will be watching to see what you come up with.
