Cool Alternative swing arms

Are there any that fit and would look better than the original? I have an 87 street fighter and have been thinking of another look for the swingarm. Also in doing so get a shock upgrade which is a benefit. Not interested in a single side option. Even thought about welding onto it for a better look. Any thoughts or pics of what folks have done is always cool.

Love what they did here with the swingarm part. Have you seen any other mods similar?

Yay or nay?

Cool stuff. Whenever you take metal off of a structural component, strength should be a consideration, but I would think there'd be plenty of meat left on the bone. Looks like they milled it, which is the correct way. Using a grinder (or even a file) you would have a very difficult time getting it exactly centered/straight. Might need a lathe to turn down a couple wheel spacers

I haven't experimented with rear swaps before, but the nice thing about it is that so long as you can find something that physically fits, it's generally possible to do. Good luck
