Problem moving battery and oil tank
I've got an '81 FLT that I am "Bobbering". There are several issues, but two are most perplexing.
1: A tank with an FLH dash that will fit over the "square back" frame.
2: How to move that big, bulky battery, and the ugly oil tank so I can run it without "skins".
The conundrum: I bought an '07 tank. The '07 frame (on my '07 FLRP) has the same size backbone. It will fit, but the back tab has a "Z" shape to it, making the fuel feeder hole higher than the forward sump of the tank. Do I change the location of the feeder hole, straighten the "Z" tab and lengthen the front tabs, or trash the whole idea and just buy another frame that will accommodate flat sided bobber tanks and the oil bag/battery change too? I just don't want to cut up the original frame.
