Will a rear fender from a 2001 softail springer fit a 1997 softail springer

I needed a new rear fender (to Paint) I found a 2001 softail springer fender, I have a 1997 softail springer. Will a rear fender from a 2001 softail springer fit a 1997 softail springer? I know they are slightly different but they look close.

thank you

cal

Depending on how savvy you are? Measure the width between your fender struts. Mine was 7.5 inches in width, and i had no qualms about going off that alone. Some trimming may or may not need to be done around the seat area, or new holes drilled.

Nitram_b4 is reading this now saying WTF is this?
I think it is going to be too wide to fit between the struts, 2000 to 2005 are interchangeable
I have a 2000 springer and switched my fender to a 2002 FLSTC, but I searched around to see what would fit and I seem to recall anything earlier would not be wide enough

I also have a 97 Springer, I have an extra rear fender as well as front fender and gas tanks that I took off when I had the bike painted.

Been looking to get rid of them for awhile now.

I don't think it will be any wider...the holes for your struts will be drilled differently though, so you'd have to probably drill some new holes...
