Wideboy04 wants to know Dino or Syn?
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
