I'm not sure, but it looks kind of like the boards are attached using the lower motor mounting rod, which actually goes all the way through, from one side of the frame to the other. On a related note, when you're looking for stock foot pegs, make sure they are specifically for the '83 wing. There were changes between years, and they are different.
I laid down where I could poke my head under the bike and turns of you're right about the running board frame being mounted on that front engine mount bolt. I'm going to look for some foot pegs before I mess with them. They're probably nice for long distance cruising, but I just didn't like them when I took the bike out for a quick run.
So far I've stripped all the luggage off, those aftermarket side covers, and left the front fairing on until I get a headlight bracket. I can actually get it up on the center stand alone now.
