Need a little info. What do you have - a Custom that someone installed floorboards on or a Classic which comes with floorboards? I've seen Customs that owners install the Classic/Silverado floorboards on and they sit in an incorrect position with the kickstand intefering with the toe/heel shifter and are set back.
