I know there is an interchange book for auto wreckers, surely there is one for Harleys as well.
There is no current book for Harley. There is one, which I have, which covers 1936-1983. However, it's privately written, and not by HD.
By simply using internet parts fiche, you can go from year to year of your model, and parts are interchangable, until the part number changes from one year to the next.
The oval floor boards haven't been used in years, and were brought back for the Heritage Softail classic, and later, the 2008 Corssbones.
They are a substitute for the square boards and will fit models with square boards, as the boards/pads are the difference, and the mouting points and anchors are the same.
