I finally got my swingarm on my 87 FXRC dismounted. I decided it was high time I reinstalled my belt drive. But then I decided I should upgrade the swingarm since H-D hadn't done the best job in designing it in the first place. The rectangular tubing isn't such a good idea and it tends to get crushed inward especially if the rider overtorques his axle nut. Also I acquired an H-D Airstrike rear wheel with the 1" rear bearings so I'm going to have fabricate a new axle for this project. One problem I've already encountered was that my new wheel had a completely different width then my old 9 spoke AMF wheel so I've got to come up with new wheel spacers to get my rear pulley properly centered. This is the first time I've put my efforts into a rear suspension upgrade. Most of my previous efforts have been toward designing and building 49mm front ends for Sportster, Dynas and also this FXR.
