My Bike: Restoration, swingarm

Recently I got my Dad on the case with the restoration with he swing arm!

Firstly I stripped the swing arm down and inspected it for ware and tare and most importantly rust. There was very little surface rust and the swing arm looked like it was a good usable unit, so I handed it over to my Dad to work his magic.

The swing arm was then degreased, shot blasted and coated in primer, which is the state you see in the images. The next stage will be to spray it silver and add the orange pro-link decals.

the underside is very clean

shock mount, you can see pitting from the surface rust, but this is now been completely removed.
