    Default Harley JFK swing arm on CB400?

    Damn autocorrect changed fhl to JFK

    Hey I'm brand new to moto building. Picking up this cool 79 Honda CB400. Please let me know if this is not a not idea but I like the look of the 80s Harley FHL swing arms and was wondering if anyone was able to run Harley swing arms on old Honda frames Click image for larger version.

    why a Harley swingarm?
    do you want a longer one? could just extend it:

    or you could go for a full rigid frame:

    I'm trying to lengthen and lower the frame. Was considering making one from scratch or modifying an existing one. I like the look of these thoClick image for larger version.

    I'm planning on hardtailing this bike probably later in life, when I get anoher project or get bored of the look.
