    Hi, this is Maurizio from Rome, Italy.

    I ride a 1995 Dyna Superglide Sport (alloys and double disc brake up front)

    I was fiddling with the thought of converting my bike into a sort of "9/10 scale StreetGlide", but then I saw your 1959 FLD conversion and was awed !

    OK, I'm in love... what now ?

    Some bits I have recognized, such as the chrome "Fat Bob" style rear shocks, but for many others I would need your advice.

    Could you please be so kind to provide me your "list of ingredients"?
    I do not want to copy nor plagiarize your idea, but be inspired by it.
    I would sincerely appreciate all your help.

    Best regards,

    Maurizio Pescatori

    AFMM3,
    Thanks for the tip on pie cutting. I did that today and it worked very well. The left side is up nicely now. I'll have to wait until I get my bag brackets for the final alignment.
    Thanks again,
    Rick

    Thank you. I may yet go with Klockwerks but it's nice to have this as an option.

    Klockwerks now makes them for Super Glide/Street Bob fork sliders in addition to the originals for Fat Bob sliders. I would get them from Klockwerks to tell you the truth. But with that said:
    -the vertical portion (mounts to sliders) is 1/4 inch thick
    -The horizontal portion (fender mounts to it) is 1/2 inch thick
    -they overlap where they make the center of the "L" for an overall width of 3/4 inch.
    Here is a picture that you should be able to copy and print if needed

    I apologize if you've already posted this elsewhere but I can't find it. Those front fender brackets you made, were they for Fat Bob lowers? If so do you have some measurements I could pass on to have similar made for me? Trying to avoid the expensive Klockwerks if I can.

    I did a bit of it in the FL-Dyna Interest Group. Basically, it is a 2009 FLHT Touring Exhaust. 2009 is the only year that has the O2 sensor bungs at the top and also there is no catalytic convertor.

    Rear downtube was cut off just above the collector. This allowed me to do a "pie cut" or two where the front down tube bends towards the back (The Electra-Glide motor is tilted forward vs the Dyna or Softail motor wich is slightly aft of center). Once the pie cut is made, I attached the exhaust bracket to an FLHT transmission bracket that I installed and stretched 2 inches forward. This established the exhaust as level as it needed to be.

    The rear town tube needed about a 1/2 inch cut out of it and rewelded to the collector in it's new location.

    The collector had to be stretched 3 inches for the cross under pipe to be located correctly.

    I made an "L" bracket and welded it to the bottom of the rear engine isolator. I attached the OEM cross under bracket to this. At this point, the exhaust is mounted and supported exactly as an Electra-Glide.

    Now the mufflers need to be supported as far to the rear as possible. I have a 2010 Road King fender with the "fender to Saddlebag" brace located at the bottom rear of the fender. This bracket is only as strong as the fender it is bolted to, so I ran bracing, inside the fender, from the bracket up to the fender struts. This is exactly as an Electra-Glide would do it but I chose to hide the additional bracing (made from old windshield brackets). My saddlebags were attached to the fender bracket so the bottom of the saddlebags would not sag inwards when loaded. To the saddlebag brackets I attached the muffler hangers with rubber isolators in them.

    I have an Electra-Glide in my garage, so I tried to copy the physics as close to possible as this is a proven technology.

    What rear fender are you using? I am looking to change my stock FXD rear fender out.
