Default Differences between Deuce and Softail, fender/tank swap

I have a 04 Nightrain, I love the blacked out look but hate the softail fender/tank. The deuce has a much cleaner rear fender and the tank looks more proportional to the bike (looks longer). I know the seat is different also. My question, can you bolt a tank/seat/fender from a deuce onto a softail?? I know you need to stay carb to carb or I to I. The fender struts are different also, I just wonder how much??

Also these guys are putting a 200mm tire with all stock parts under a deuce fender. ever seen this? The price seems FRIGIN OUTRAGEOUS for what you get.

WRT the tire size...the stock size is a 160mm. There's a factory kit to upgrade to 180mm using the stock rear fender. Anything larger may not fit. Heartland USA makes a 180mm rear wheel kit that supposed to bolt right in with no mods.
