What frame parts will interchange?
I'd like to make a few changes to my 2005 XL1200C. I plan to take a long trip and these changes would make it a better and safer ride. I want to replace (1) the rear fender, (2) install a solo seat with a backrest and (3) replace the front spoke wheel with an alloy.
1. How involved would it be to put a Fatboy or Softail rear fender on my Sporty?
2. I'm 6.3" and need a solo seat and backrest with more distance between the the seat and the 4.5 gal tank. Most seats appear to be designed to move you forward.
3. I want an alloy front wheel so that I can plug a hole in the tire and not have to replace a tube out on the road.
I realize that I'm asking a lot of you guys, but this is my first Harley and after owning 45 machines, this is my all time favorite. I absolutely love this bike!!! Maybe a bigger one later on, but for now, I'm VERY please with my Sporty. Thanks!!!!
