How about a classic HRC style swingarm.



Karl Landrus makes really cool stuff to say the least.

Welcome back, you know there was a tread about your absence?

So this is the stock with cosmetic welding, or some improvement?

Those are some bad ass bikes on that site. Your Honda looks like a Steve Lamson bike.

Not my bike, but I would sure save some pennies for one for an 80's generation CR.

Doc, no, didn't know that. Had a bit of a rough patch health wise for a couple weeks early June that knocked me out of the loop and, honestly, couldn't stomach the tone of the place when I checked back in. A little space sometimes gives a bit of perspective. So I took a break and may continue it. BTW, no, that's not cosmetic ~ check the site; he builds those arms and others. The guy really is a metal artist. I so admire that kind of gift (which a few people who have or do post here have as well).

Yeah...welcome back FTE! Was wondering where you skipped off to.

And also....HOLY MOLY......you must of been reading my mind on this thread. I was just thinking the other day when a guy posted some pics of some of the older works bikes , and remembered there was a guy who used to make replica factory CR swing arms.

And there ya have it.........

Thanks for posting.....web page is book marked!

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

Bleached forks, carbon subframe and the hand made swingarm? There is a whole lot of goodies on that scooter.

That bike to that motor is like framing a kindergarten finger painting in gold leaf with triple matting.

Do you have more photos?
