Thats kind of what I was thinking, anything is possible. I was hoping someone has gone down that road and can offer some advice or products. Thanks for the reply! I will certainly look into it that company.anything is possible - why not? look into Buchanan Spokes online - they may already have the specs or can develop them
you're probably looking at $300 - 400 to make it happen but you want to do it right since it's your life depending on that front rimThats kind of what I was thinking, anything is possible.

There are a number of ways to go. First, to decide on what size rim you want. Then if you want to buy a new rim or fit something from another bike. Will you reuse the front hub or go with all new? A new hub will create a number of fabrication issues but fewer spec matching issues. If you go with the current hub, you'll need to match the number of spokes and pattern. The spokes will be longer obviously and that's where Buchanans comes in - they can calculate the spoke length for you. You also have a number of choices on spoke materials and design.
Replacing the fender is another issue. The fender provides stiffness between the forks that you'll want to maintain for proper handling.
Look here for one fork brace option: https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f18/fork-brace-19581.html
You are probably looking to do away with the front fender, but the CM250 (Rebel predecessor) front fender tabs are much longer/higher than the Rebel's. One of those could be fitted to the larger wheel and provide bracing. I've got a chrome one on mine.
