A Dyna model Harley has always been a Touring frame with Sportster front end.

In 06 they redesigned the Dyna frame. Was this the same frame as the 09 Touring line up? Or are they now different frames?

Whole new frame.

After 28 years of using the same basic frame architecture, Harley decided it was time to debut a new chassis to continue their dominance of the touring segment. “This was the biggest undertaking since the creation of the platform,” said Ben Wright, 2009 Touring Project Lead and Platform Staff Engineer.

I think Dyna started out as a touring frame. If it would have been a touring frame up to 06 I suspect it would have needed the touring transmission and all that rot. But then again, I have wrong before.
