I like it, Everything for a Harley is overpriced. But thats the way it is. I put the crome swingarm from the P&A catalog on my Dyna. Give me some details about your new swingarm.

I Like it Dutch .... Nice & clean looking & their axle adjusters are top notch too. Great addition at a very reasonable price. Good score.

Cheers ...

Well, I guess I'm trusting the many thousands of swingarms these guys have made over many years and their experience in WSBK and TT racing in preference to your ability to make an accurate engineering assessment from a low res photograph.

After seeing the other swing arm I'm retracting my comment on the original one. It's way better of the two.
