got a 77' 4-speed swing arm i keep goin back and forth on what to do with?? do i leave it a swing arm? i've never had shocks on it just made different struts from time to time when bored, Cant afford the wishbone frame i want, i'm not a big fan of shocks on chops. but when i see bikes like T-bones and others it's hella inspiration!!! do i make it a rigid with a weld on rear? Any suggestions would help me get off my ass, thanks!

well, do you want a bad ass chop with shocks? or do you want a bad ass bike with a hardtail?

I've hardtailed two swing arm frames. I loved them both, but I'll never do another. If you have the tittle for that frame it's worth bucks, enonugh bucks to buy the frame you really want I'd guess.
Dont listen to us, do what ever blows your hair back, either way you'll be happy I bet.
The santee weld on rear sections are no longer as good as they were though, a word to the wise and what not.

Thank O. That one is NYandy's. No title issues this way. Why get the hassle if you don't have to.

I agree Fredo! Swing arms are so underrated! Keep it and enjoy riding with shocks! (:

Yeah, I've thought about chopping mine, but I think I'd rather not. I'm kinda digging the 4 speed swingarm.
