I also asked at my local dealer about the classic/custom floorboard swap -- was told that yes, it can be done. They had both bikes on the showroom floor and, yes, they're the same frame... Salesperson told me they had a customer that absolutely had to have the heel/toe classic shifter along with the floorboards on his custom... with all the misc bolts etc, it cost nearly $1000 (!!!!) to do the swap.
As I don't need the heel/toe shifter, what I've found for MUCH better prices are the various Kuryakyn (sp?) floorboards with the adapters specific to the custom's footpeg mounts.
I'm worried about loss of ground clearance though, so have been thinking also about the Kuryakyn switchblade, foldout pegs as another option.
Would love to hear from others about any ground clearance issues with any of the non-OEM floorboard swaps...
