    Default FXR aluminum swingarm

    I want to fab up an aluminum swingarm for my FXR. Any idea what the guys making them are using for tubing? I see its a 6061 with an internal rib. Any idea where to get this tubing? I've even seen some Busa guys using tubing with 2 internal ribs. This would probably be overkill for a stock length swingarm.

    Why aluminum you ask? Because I want to be the coolest kid on the block. Chicks dig guys with aluminum swingarms.

    You could check existing aluminum custom FXR swingarms for ideas. Check out how they are made for some fabrication ideas. Eccentric axle adjusters instead of screws would be a nice touch.

    If you do this it would be nice to share the CAD dwgs.
