Homemade SSSA from welded chain links and re-bar for an axle.

A chain for a swingarm? That’s some serious innovation right there.

If “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link”, I’m genuinely surprised the rebar ‘axle’ gave first. You’d think ONE (or more) of all those welded links would give-way the first time you sat on the bike.

I rate this build a solid 4/5 facepalms :facepalm:facepalm:facepalm:facepalm

At least it's a Honda. :spit That's nearly as cool as the chain ape hangers the Harley guys do.

I would like to know which state this is in haha . Such a terrible mod!!! :suicide:
Can't make out the plate in the second pic, large image isn't loading for me.

"Looks" cool/interesting and that's it, would never concede in actually doing what this guy did and rebar....WTF.

So the name of the shop that built this is 1 of A Kind Kustoms in Michigan
Did anyone else check out their "Builds" page? :suicide

I think of how beefy & strong our swingarms are stock... and how SBKs will brace them further.

Then I see something like this, where they stretch a bike with 2 bent tubes as the swingarm and even stick an extra seat / set of footpegs on there.

Engineering par excellence :thumbup





Still, this has to be stronger than welding up some chain links. Apparently they used a balsa wood dowel for the axle on this one :lol
