Electra Glide to Road Glide conversion

This is the bike I will be converting. Itís a 2003 FLHT with 95in S&S kit, 570 gear cam drive, upgraded electrical system, S&S type E carb and other mods. I bought it new and have been working on it ever since. I am looking forward to the challenge of this conversion. I know I will need the help of the brothers on this forum. I have done most of the mods on this bike so far and feel confident I can pull this off.

Sounds like fun. Which year fairing and stuff are you going to use? I know you will have wiring issues to deal with, but i'm sure you will figure everything out. Good luck to you.

Nice bike. I don't think the fairing conversion will be as difficult as some think. Most, if not all of the wiring should already be there, and then you're down to the proper brackets for the fairing.

Make sure you buy the 2010 -2013 fairing mounts or you won't be able to use your current lowers. Good luck in your mod.

Welcome to my mess

This part is not to bad. Iíve done this before when I painted it..a couple of times.

Couple of hours and itís off..

While I was doing that some of my parts came in. The mounting bracket, internal bracket and the headlight assembly..


The mounting bracket I ordered was for 98-13 years. Hope it works I can already tell my forks will have to be removed to get the mounting bracket bolt in because their long and go they go all the way thru.

There are 2 types of fairing mounting hardware. 1. 2009 back 2. 2010 - 2013 . The 2010 up will lift the rear of the fairing up an inch or so. If you look close , the 2010-2013 fairings are tilted compared to the 2009 back. The later are inerchangable with the older.

Donít know why it posted twice. Maybe a moderator can remove one of them. After I posted, my fairing came in. On initial mock up it looks like itís all going to fit. I will post pics tomorrow.
