    Joemama swingarm extention

    I recently completed a couple of extended swingarm projects for my riding partners. I am sure there are other ways of doing this, but here is how I did these. First I marked the two donor arms to gain a 2' extiention.





    I used a piece of allthread in the axle location to maintain the proper width and made the cuts with a sawsall.



    I made inserts from 1x1.5 box tubing and 1/4x1 flat strap for a total of 1" x 1 3/4"

    I drilled 72 1/4" holes for plug welds, put the inserts in and slid it all together. It was a very snug fit, thus the Idaho persuaders.



    All true and ready to be welded.



    All welds completed and ready for clean up.



    I used a flap wheel grinder to clean the welds up.

    The front chain guard tabs were moved back 2".



    A really good clean up in the bead blaster and it is ready for paint. Silver or black?



    I hope it all works out for you Joeband. LETS RIDE!

    Nice job on the extension.

    Idaho persuaders, love the tool set!

    Impressive work there Joe. So that's how it is done!
    How long of an insert can you persuade into the respective donor arms?

    The true straight section is only 5" long on a stock arm. The insert is 7" long. Snug on both ends as well as the entire length. There was no motion at all when it was ready to be welded.

    Dang, Joemama! 72 holes and plug welds! I'll bet you were glad I didn't come back and ask you to add another 1/2" to mine , that sucker is never coming apart!

    Seeing the fabrication process steps makes me appreciate your efforts even more - thanks again Joe!

    Outstanding work!
