rayworx, I will post a pic later of the swing arm that came with the kit, I am NOT using it. not much thought went to fab work. I will be building my own using the stock swing arm.

That doesn't look that great, it looks like they just welded onto a stock swing arm.
I can see that failing at some point in time from rust.

Actually vary strong. The bike that the kit came from hit something hard enough to snap the left axle and bend the tube on the rear end. The portion that is welded to the stock swing arm has no damage (2X2X1/4). The stock portion bent just a little. I was surprised.

Question on the on board compressor: Adding two six inch air bags instead of the factory type progressive shocks. Wondering if the on board compressor will work with the air bags. one of the shocks rolled over and oil came out where the line connects to it ????

...you trust that piece?

...why the plate riveted to the top of the swingarm?

...rust.
I'm with Trike Lady ...rust.
Why would they miter some of it, yet leave the square tube open like that?

Use it for a template and start over..

True Onewing. Because of the large size "sq in" of the center brace it cuts down noise and vibration, Thus causing the brace to crack.
