The DG swingarm was a custom made arm for Erik Kehoe, another inch longer than a standard DG gold arm, a former DG employee from back in the day had it new in a box
and sold it to me for my build

I do not think you are connecting with the correct buyers. The bikes are worth way more!

Any bike being 25 plus years old would need a 100% service, to be ready to ride!

Not even a mark on the stunning white airbox, the spokes, rims, hubs are in show quality shape! Not one ding, or mark on the forks, or triple tree set, the renthal bar / pad set are perfect Paint still on levers!
