Re: Single-sided swing arm

I did some machining to help a mate install a Honda Single Sided Swing Arm in a Suzy GSXR frame. Lots of clearance and chain alignment issues. The idea was originally conceived for endurance racing. Like Steve says super fast wheel swaps. I don't think there's any handling advantage. I sure wouldn't...

Re: Frame material

Thanks Steve. I had considered a replacement frame. Any square case one would work as the bike will not be a restoration. I have a pretty well equipped machine shop in my garage. Making a lot of my own stuff is my thing and in many cases an economic necessity. One of the arguments in favor of repair...

Re: Frame material

From Alberta Canada

Hello Everyone. My name is Don. I'm a big fan of Ducati. I have a 2002 ST2 and a 2006 Sport 1000. I've been searching for an affordable Bevel Drive Project for a number of years. Well I found one. A 1979 Darmah SD. It was in a collision in 1987 and has been parked ever since. The good, it shows 2,20...
