Can you guys tell me if it's possible to get a Shovelhead swingarm on a Softail Deluxe ?

I'd like to customize my bike and give that oldschool look with the shocks on both sides.

Buy an FL or Dyna. Making a softail into a shocked rear suspension would require many, many hours of frame welding and redesigning.

You'd be better off buying another frame.

Agreed, the fender struts on the softails just don't have the necessary frame support required to take the forces of a shock suspension.
