I can't seem to find this thread anywhere and i'm sure it already exists but i'll ask anyway.



I know the custom frame is slightly different than the deluxe models but will the deluxe tank fit on the custom?



I noticed there is a giant space almost big enough for my hand between the backbone and the bottom of my custom tank. I'm only doing this for longer trips without stopping every 100 miles.



I also know GL tanks won't fit due to the double backbone or whatever it is on them.

I'm modifying a Deluxe tank to a GL frame. As I attempt to relocate the front rubber bushings and their frame locating pins, I expected the old ones are to be CUT OFF. But when I read the attached thread, it seem to be saying they unscrew. So out I went last night with a pair of Vice-Grips but no cigar, they do not unscrew. Am I missing something?

I know, but I expected the pins to remove in the same way. I guess I will need to cut them off. Strange, they would screw in one year and be welded in the next though.
