Default Returning ‘96 XL1200S to former glory

Hi guys. Been a long time lurker without posting much over the years, but here’s the lowdown.
I picked up a ‘96 1200s a few years back at a great price (for Australia anyway).
The previous owners vision of his perfect bike seems pretty different to mine- think buckhorns, a big SportBob tank, sissy bar and forwards, saddle bag mounts etc. I don’t use photobucket or I’d put up a pic of the day I got it home.
It’s been a very slow process for me, but my plan has been to take the old girl back closer to her original form.
So I’ve put on some drag bars paired with 6in risers, taken off the oversized tank, borrowed a King Sporty tank from a mate until I get my hands on a decent one, on-sold the sissy bar and am in the process of pulling off the fwds to chuck on some OEM mids.
Here lies my current problem. The fwds that were on did the job of 4 of the frame to engine mount bolts and the allen heads bolts that hold the shift side foot peg on are not there.
Can anyone help me out with dimensions so I can order more please?

If you select the print option (from the right side dropdown menu, look for the three dots) you can print that catalog to a .pdf file and save it to your PC/phone/tablet.
