I decided to go the pogo/T-bar route on my 72 Flh.
So this weekend I came home from a swap meet w/ the parts I needed.
The first part that sucks is I ened up buying what I now guess is a 45" pogo, damit!
So besides the Dia on the 45's shaft being 1.06" and Im gussing the big twins is around 1.19" (going by the bushings in my frame), Is there also a difference in the lengths?

Im thinking I just may rebush my frame to fit the 45's pogo.

Whats your take on this?

great, thats what I was hoping. $10 still was a rediculous deal even if it will take some fudging to use.

Anyone got a pic/exploded view of which nuts and washers are on the out side of the frame? Therers a few nuts and beveled washers along w/ a spacer w/ 2 flats on it all on the bottom of the post.

any help would be great,
jeff

My 84 FL has a pogo with a 45 Post. Just made a bronze bushing to make up for the smaller I. D. post. I do have a Cat valve spring between the top of the bushing (I have a flange on the bushing top) and the seat tee to help keep my fat ass from bottoming out too easily. May not be an issue for you.

great, I made up some bronze bushings today.
Just incase someone pulls this thread up in a search some day, to run a 45 pogo in a BT frame the bushings need to be
1.250 O.D.
1.062 I.D.

Probably doesn't need to be said, but of course you need to drill and bevel a hole in the bushing for the greaser. And in my humble opinion, a groove cut through the center of the bushing around the grease hole for the grease to flow into will go a LONG way towards having to replace the bushing frequently...

It will take a little getting used to the way the bike feels now, but Im happy w/ the outcome.

Thanks guys Im lovin the way it looks too. Just changing the way the seat was mounted made it look 20 yrs older.
Heres a pic of when I had it mounted solid to the frame, not bad but the pogo has the look.
