Front End Conversion
I've seen post before about converting FLST to FXST
frontends. I'm finally getting around to doing mine after
collecting parts for the past 4 months. I've run into a couple
snags. My local Dealer assured me that spacers, calipers,
wheel, axle, and fenders with adapters would work. Guess what.
I'm using a 16" wheel. Spacers- FLST or FXST don't fit.
A friend is machining a set from 6061 aluminum. Fenders
brackets are going to have to made, I think I have a design
for them. The Caliper is going to have to be spaced. I already
had the handlebar mounts made to fit my new trees. The 1 1/2
bars didn't fit right. What did some of you guys have to do, to
get the wide glide to fit a Fatboy. I really like what is taking shape
so far, I just hope it turns out to be worth it. Thanks, Jim
