Thanks Dear. I had found the site below right before you sent me the link but will bookmark yours.

https://partsfinder.onlinemicrofiche...TER%20ASSEMBLY

Got what I needed for a buck fifty shipped. The clevis is the same for the right on the mids as it is for the forwards. No worrying about having to refinish, fitment, etc over on fleabay, which was more expensive BTW. I had bought the adjustable brake linkage already for the forwards and will just cut it off and thread one end. That'll save about $50. It doesn't seem like much but when you have already spent $5K on a bike you paid $5K for, ya gotta start drawing the line somewhere

Anyone know what they used before forward controls?

Highway Pegs. (or bar depends on which coast your on)

Yup, I will be trying to find a set after I get the mids installed just like my old Ironhead.

Finally got all of it on. I think swapping the cams out was easier not counting pulling top end down. 2 trips to the HD shop, 1 trip to fleabay and finally got it together after 2 attempts. Damn bolts when I started putting them in were slightly bent from 13 yrs of use so back to the HD shop. But it's done and done right. Cut the bent bolts down and put them back in the front to hold the J-clips so did save a little money by reusing them. Thinking about putting the others in the MP soon.

Only drove down the street a couple of miles but the cornering is much better. Slow speed maneuvering is awesome. Heck I can do a u turn in a much tighter radius without crab legging it like before. I'm pleased. My legs are a little long so my knees are bent upward. But I think it will be much easier to control as I start pushing the power and speed and can put my head down in the wind. 250 more break in miles.
