Your Call. Even before all the swing arm near-failures posted here, yours truly SAW [during major Wing maint. in '05] how all un-welded spaces on mine, were shedding water, dirt. I sprayed full can of brake cleaner into all spaces, followed by compressed air dry & several hours hung in direct sunlight.
EVERY space was then sealed with black silicone gasket sealer TWICE. No problems since. DO THIS to your next swingarm and it should outlast you, LOL.

I usually spray the new swingarm with Schutz, which is a thick car underbody sealer. There are many similar products. They stop stone chips from eating through the paint and letting the rust in.

I don't know if trikes are big in the old Country like they are here but I picked up an entire swing-arm assembly with driveshaft and rear-end goodies for (as I recall) 50 bucks or so. It was a takeoff from a trike conversion and was barely used. You might check a shop that does conversions. Also, I see them listed in the Wing-World magazine occasionally.

Yes try shops that do trikes. Got mine from a shop that did the conversions. I would up with the swingarm in almost mint codition and the rear drive attached to it. Good luck on finding one.
