View Full Version : XS Tube Thickness ?

01-02-2011, 5:40 PM
So Im about to start chopping my xs and want to get as much material on hand as I can to complete as much as possible. I wanted to know if anyone knew off hand the size tubing (O.D. and I.D) of the upright section behind the backbone. My shitty digital calipers batterys went out and wont be able to get to the store until tommorrow.

Backbone is 1.5" OD, and the tubing thickness has been anywhere from .095 to .110 in my experience. The rest of the frame is 1.125" OD in the tail section.

How about swingarm wall thickness? I know the out side diameter is about 34mm or 1 3/8 " inside diameter ?

+1 on punkskalar's specs. and if he's gonna hard tail it, the swing arm specs shouldn't matter, no?

You are correct, I'm not hardtailing and was wondering the swingarm wall thickness or inside diameter.

My calipers read the swing arm O.D. to be 1 5/16. Couldn't get wall thickness. This off an 81'.
