This is 2007 Deuce



This is a 2007 FXST
There's more than three and for 2007, IIRC, the only different frame was the Deuce. The frame on the Fatboy, Deluxe, Custom, etc... should all be the same. The only difference in accommodating different wheel sizes are frame horns and swingarms.

What 2007 Harley's come with a 200 series tire? I know what a swingarm is, but what is a frame horn?

The custom and the fatboy. I think that's it. The frame horns are the parts that the rear fender mounts to.

While I like the Deuce, many don't if that means anything to you. When looking for parts for your Deuce, you'll find most listed fit every Softail except the Deuce. This is only true for very few parts in reality, I'm sure VI would be able to educate you more on this. Just something to keep in mind.

And nothing wrong with digging up an old thread as long as there is a purpose.

Mostly just cosmetic parts and seats between the tank and tail and most of it is bolt on accessories for a catalog queen. Already said that the seat mount and the backrest mount differently. They're cleaner than on other HDs without pegs sticking out from the rear struts. There are parts that say they're not made for a Deuce but still fit. And if there were no aftermarket Duece parts, they'd be all stock which is obviously not the case.

My mods:
Lowered 2" front
Shotgun Shock for adjustable rear ride height
17x6.5 Softail Custom wheel
Coil & horn relocation
DK Customs air cleaner
Lepera seat
relocated license plate bracket
Daymaker LED headlight
3" tank lift
Powder coated rear struts and wheel
95" upgrade
SE20something cams

Those are the major ones. I'm still going to do a lot more when I get the money and time. 23" front wheel, new forks and trees, head work, new bars with the grip ace system and little to no visible cabling, paint, finish the powder coating etc...

So don't let anyone tell you there's not an aftermarket for the Deuce.

Have a 07 Fxstc and love it. Have ridden friends 03 deuce but like the laid back feeling of mine better. Love the 200 tire look(friend thought of converting his deuce). The stock seat is very nice. Black and chrome is perfect.
