View Full Version : Any experience with shaft-cover/swingarm removal when hardtailing a shaft bike?

I'm gathering information to do a full hardtail on an 80's GS and am wondering if the entire unit can be removed and driven that way or if the right side (at the very least) can be cut off and discarded in case the shaft cover needs to be retained.

Both the left and right sides of the "swingarm" will no longer provide any locating duties at this point...
