Swingarm with narrowed tanks would be very cool and different.

HA HA WOODY best $228.00 I've spent in a while,one of the trans mount is a little munted but fixable,It was mike from HSC who didn't want me to cut it up as he says they are getting thin on the ground so mike have you got a swingarm,for grinder fest I will hopefully have my triumph done,finished the btm end and gearbox for it so just need to break it down and make sure it doesn't need anything else.

man you guys are easy to wind up jocolor
im in one of those moods today, saw a jappa bike mag in the smoko room today that had a re-dick-you-less looking hyabusa with extended single swingarm on it, oh yeah and gay yellow and blue and white and who knows what other colour stickers all over it!

cough cough....now i got that out

hardtail would be my vote, not enough bruised kidneys about these days, makes all the old HOG guys cringe when you say hardtail

Will mike at harley speed gave me the swingarm with all the bearings etc thanks mike,so I built up a roller fr forks where way too long so had some shorter tubes and fitted these so it sits wellington style ie the btm frame rails are level then went and droped the evo mtr in but knew it wouldn't fit rear cylinder rocker box hits frame backbone,so found some info from irish rich as he has done a couple of these and found you have to cut the seat tube two inch's down and the rear uprights then jack the frame up and fit slugs and let jack of looks like I will need about an inch and then drop mtr in to check if it fits and weld it up sounds fucking easy bet it isn't though and does anyone know where I could get some 5" tube to make an oil tank also looked at running a 16" fr wheel but couldn't do it so slung a 21" in there much better profile and hell might even have to run some apes on this one I'll try and get some pics up but don't have much luck at that so might have to send them to woody to put up lol.
