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.
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.
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...
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.
