If the dowels are welded on the inside grind the weld off and knock the dowel out from the inside out.I use H.D lug bolts from the swapmeets,I never saw an aftermarket one that was much good(JMO).

V-Twin's parkered (black phosphate) lug bolts are excellent replicas of the original.
Kick-Start sells the lugs and dowel pins individually. (616) 245-8991 10-5, EST)
