I'm guessing it's a clearance issue, or an attempt to put as much weight on the front as possible. Fucking sick BTW!:thumbsup:

Yea its made from Chrome molly

The bike looks nice....But my well trained, schooled and experienced engineering eye assures me that the swingarm needs gussetting. It is not strong enough. It will have a very low natural frequency and you will be losing traction at best, and have a catastrophic buckling failure at worst.

All the damping in the shock with that swingarm design is irrelevant. what you have made is a leaf spring attached to the rear wheel.

Triangular gussetting with a 6" high point around mid way down the swingarm would fix your resonance/traction problem that you don't realize you have yet.
