I've seen several stock stretched arms that have never failed. Even after 10 effing years of hard drag racing. I guess the factory welds better than this douchebag.

If you knew his arm was not up to the task you shouldn't have modded it in the first place you dipshit!

Your welds did not penetrate and as an amateur welder even I can see that. When dealing with parts such as a swingarm, you best know your welds are 100% or have them xray'd before tackling something that could result in a death. Even if he wasn't drag racing, I would venture that arm would have failed after a few normal bumps and ruts in the road going a measely 40mph.

Sorry for reviving the thread, but I just was thinking out loud and realized I've had my SB-Customs swing arm installed on my bike for over 5yrs now and decided to search to see if others have used them after me...  Sad to see this, but mine is still solid as day 1 and looks just as good still.  I had a great experience with both Tom and Scott, got the chance to talk to both of them throughout the process.

For the record, I distinctly remember their site having a disclaimer saying it's not meant for drag racing or something to that effect.  I do not recall turbo being part of it.

Terry McIntosh..........and that is all I have to say about that.  From first phone call to my front door was 5-6 weeks. 2-6" over Pro-Lite are stock black powder coated, welds look as good if not better than factory, 1/4" thick alloy both sides. Top and bottom of arm are 1/8" thick. All bearing races installed and ready to bolt on, 5 lbs lighter than stock.

1425 to my front door.

QUALITY DOES NOT COST, IT PAYS.

To me, one broken arm out of 1,000 is one too many.  I guess that is an unrealistic expectation, at least from SB.  Not trying to make an enemy but we have a world-class welder here in town who taught it for his entire working career - Freddie - who won Sturgis in Harley Top Fuel recently.  I've known him for 20 years and his stuff looks a fugguva lot better than what I have seen on this thread.  He used to weld on my cylinder heads on my old Shovelhead strokers - both were 109 inchers back when 109 inch Hoggs were not that plentiful.

That is double ugly welding.  You can really tell by the two in-tact tubes that look like someone smeared bathroom caulk over them with their fingers and then spray painted it black. :td:

A picture is worth a thousand words, as old mama used to say, when she caught me in bed with my first cousin, a female, in case you were wondering.

You laughin' again? I don't think its' nice you laughin'.  See, my mule don't like you laughin', he gets the crazy idea you're "laughin'' at him........but if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I just might convince him you didn't mean it. :mrgreen:

I ended up marrying her (no, we ain't hillbillies) on May 4, 1974 and we stayed together for 3 1/2 years..........until she finally realized what a horrible mistake she had made.  :wink:

Outrageous sex, but different life goals...........she ended up with a six figure government job in DC and never married again.........guess I ruined it for her.  She has, I believe, now gotten close to retirement age and owns a beautiful home in Durham, paid for, and has close to a million stashed away plus her govt. pension.............when she leaves........according to her brother.

I ended up with Lynda, she has remained with me for 35 years now so I think this one is a keeper.  :tu:  Marvelous cook, fantastic mother and mate/friend, world traveler, great physical shape, and most of all..........................she still loves me, I can feel it and see it in all she does, don't have to hear it, just know it, just like I know the sun will rise tomorrow.  You cannot put a price on that - it is priceless.  :tu:

When I had reached to "low point" with the vodka/beer and valium, I took my pistol-grip 12 gage and blew three 00 buck rounds into my town house walls when we were separated.  That was the end.  She pulled me out of that shit and got me into rehab with the VA and I got "clean".  She did not have to do that.  But she did. 

The woman saved my life.  :hrt:

Just read all comment again and see you have one his arms and aren't him (he had few screen. Names here)..I'm happy for you it didn't break yet.and hope you don't get hurt if it does!!..sliding sideways and messing my show bike up will have person. Pissed..then he called me drunk k one night talking shit!!

Out paths will meet again some day and I guarantee you won't be talking shit..

Ps.he's on alot black lists you quoted one of me. Making a few movies..not that it was right but hardly justifies a business selling parts that he knows have broken before and can get someone killed!!
