Knife,
Are the floor board bolt on or did you have to mod something to make them fit?

Floorboards just bolt on, nothing to mod or adjust. You just unbolt the stock rubber panels and replace them with the floorboard.

Still available here:

Not a Mod. exactly, or anything I made, but something very cheap that I really like...
I had used a combination cable before till when I went to use it the last time and some way the combination had changed or something, I was not able to get it open or use it...
I picked up this very handy keyed bicycle cable lock for very cheap (china-mart) and love it... I know it won't keep a pro from stealing my bike, but they are not the ones I worry about...


Holder attached to frame... Sorry about the bugs, but I got them the hard way (I earned them)...lol...



Lock in holder...



In holder and front wheel locked, one end is small and can also run thru helmet "D" ring and lock it...



The key stays in the lock when not in use and stored in my saddle bag....

I did do some highway footpegs on the Vulcan that worked out pretty good, really helped on a lay over...



They didn't giveway when I totaled out Clyde either...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

Southern Central Tennessee.......
Now on the Dark Side......
Girl's Bike 09 Sporty xl 1200 Custom...33k + & clickin......
Sportster Owner/Rider since age 72...lol... Rider since Simplex...???
