2006 front and rear Sporty tins on an 87 FXR?

Yes? No? Here's the deal. Local guy has a nice set of take off 2006 Sportster fenders in good condition with an almost exact match for my paint. My tins are dinged, faded and scratched, so being a semi-cheap booger, I figure to see if they'll work for me. So, will they fit OR, with a little modification, can they be made to fit?

Easy but laborious way to know would be to pull your rear fender and compare, but measure the width first.

If width matches then the rest would basically be drilling bolt holes. I use Unibit style stepped bits for drilling fenders. Harbor Freight cheapies work decently.

You'd be breaking the old hardware loose for a paint job anyway so doing that early can't hurt.
