Re: ANDY JAMES\'s swing arm...

Wish I knew guys.
It was already done and the guy who owned it before me didn't know either
Yes you are dead right, it's a standard, short K arm with full bracing and it's a professional job. I guess that it must have been done by a reputable company but there are no stamps or anything on the bracing to say who did it.
I'll get a load of pics of it soon. i don't have a digital camera myself so I'll get my brother to sort out some more pics.

What do you think of the new 'pipe' and red wheels in my sig pic?

I must admit that it does look like that JMC on your site Earl(flame painter streetfighter), I've never really thought about who did it since I bought the bike 4yrs ago though.

I'll throw some pictures up in a minute , when I see how it's done on here.

I had my swingarm braced by RGV Steve in Florida for less than $200. If you show him a picture of what you want done I'm sure he can do it.

You need to be careful when bracing swingarms, though. Top braced swingarms might hit the battery on full compression; bottom braced swingarms might not clear the brake caliper/torque arm. Make sure you have the dimensions right.

Here's RGV Steve's website. Go to "Custom Parts" and check out some of his work.

He's got a GSX-R1100 as well, so anything you want made for these bikes Steve's your man.

Don't think it's a JMC or a Metmachex arm, it looks too standard, but with the pukka bracing put on.

The pipe and the wheels look cool mate. As soon as you've got pics of it, send 'em on.

It looks like a JMC arm. You could order them with regular adjustors or ecentric like the one shown below. This is the Streetfighter that inspired me to do my 88.

I already said that it's a standard Suzuki 'K' arm with bracing added.

I just don't know who braced it.
