Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

The bottom looks like my former ex racebike's Yoshimura arm.

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

Every Calfab swing arm I have ever seen is braced on the top. Doesn't mean I've seen them all though

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

That doesn't look like anything I've ever seen from Calfab, or Yoshimura.

Swing-arm is not familiar.

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

Looks like a stock arm that has been braced?
Adjuster looks to be stock and I think I can see where the chain guard tab was removed?

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

If you want that arm send a message to the seller. I was the one buying it but realized it's a 750 swingarm, not 1100 so I had to back out.

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

From the pictures, it doesn't look like the bracing ties in the links that go to the suspension pivot mounts; seems a very amateur attempt at bracing from what I can see.

That doesn't appear to be a Marvic wheel... more like a Tecnomagnesium wheel.

Seller said it's a Marvic but it only has one.

Re: Real Calfab swing arm?

It is hard to tell, but from what I can see the frame looks like someone did a pretty good welding job on the bracing.

Yeah... fingers went a different route than the actual spelling. Don't worry, I had a brief discussion with Mr.Index ... told him he better shape up!
