Default CONVERT "FX"ST to a "FL"ST front end

Trying to convert my FXST front end to a FLST front end.
OK ... I have almost given up on finding a complete front end. So .. I find sets of trees (FLST) all over the place, but, none have the stem hole for the internal fork lock.
Did FLSTs not come with internal fork locks. If they didn't why is there no pad lock "tang" on the lower tree ???

I got a tree and the light from a 95 FLSTC, good to make a conversion.

you need shorter tubes, longer lowers and all the trim up top, trees too. You can get a 63mm one on e-bay, saw one there the other day
