    Default Swing-arm choppers. Can they look good?

    Due to laws down unda im looking for some inspiration to prove swingarm chops aint so bad!

    Post pics any style that show how cool and simple swingarm chops can be!

    Garage Company Customs built "Astroglide". I've seen this bike in person and it's pretty awesome.

    Looks like it, but those are car mags too.

    I'll show you the ass of the X after cutting the rear shirt off - gaps above and alongside - really has me hamstrung - might make a filler plate of brass etching with an old hendy logo but even that might look shitty/schwag

    More pics of it at http://www.hipline.jp/gallery/10/gallery10.html

    and some info at http://www.joints.jp/i/onlyone001/HIP/index.html if you're set up to read japanese web pages

    From what I can gather it's a heavily chopped 81 Sturgis frame with asian tractor tires on Cragar mags that have been sliced and welded together so both sides look the same.

    Hey Sighless, my friend....I've been riding rigids for 40+ years in addition to swingarms....I'm 60 years old and still do 2000 mile putts on both and my swingarms sit just as low as my rigids...guess which gets the most saddle time with the most comfort????

    Go for it....

    Rigids are cool to look at and ride.... but swingarms are unique and attention getting when done well!
