“We knew we wanted to use a big ATV tire in the rear, and we wanted to retain the single-sided look–so we had to make the swing arm from scratch. There was no way to mod a Street Triple swing arm and get everything centered.”

The Classified crew ended up modifying a Honda VFR800 item: “For several reasons, the key one being that it uses a 4×4 bolt pattern, common on ATV wheels. This gave us access to wheels with a range of offsets and the 14-inch diameter we wanted.”

I wonder what a VFR800 swingarm costs and how much modification to fit a TW?
