    Long swingarm

    Hey guys, I'm down here in Australia where the tw is an extremely rare bike. I've been riding mine as a daily for my work commute for over 2 years and never seen another on the road. Unfortunately parts are hard to come by.
    My t dub is naked and fairly modified but I'm trying to take it to the next level and I'm after an off the shelf extended swingarm. Maybe 250 or 300mm longer then standard. Not wanting to cut and shut my original swingarm at this stage.

    Something like the photo attached

    I believe you have already found the source for long off-the-shelf bobber style swingarms.

    Thanks for your most helpful reply! Unfortunately they are no longer in production and out of stock. Do you know any websites with a large spread of tw parts?

    Did not mean to sound flippant or dismissive. Webike remains the most often cited source for bobber style accessories.
    AMPEX JAPAN might be worth checking, as well as BARF ( Bay Area Riders Forum). Occasionally extended swingarms can be found on used equipment areas of websites like America's Craigslist.
    Custom welding locally might be your best option.
    Maybe others know of better leads, sorry.

    there are many guys here in Thailand selling them used. they are all 200mm 8" extensions, i have made my own 5",6",7" ones.

    the customs are mainly from Japan, webike is the main site as you have already found.

    i can help find you 1 here if you want., send me a PM if interested.
