Posted the full specs. MotoGPWerks made both the alloy swingarm and the stainless exhaust. Chris (MotoGP) used to be a design engineer at Yoshimura, and has his own company now in California. His shop is across the street from the old CALFAB building, which he has acquired and started building repro CALFAB aluminum swingarms with some modern twists.

The exhaust is great, a little loud but some people have made their own baffles. My favorite part is that it is all spring connections so I can have the entire system off in a couple minutes.

The swingarms he makes are a work of art. He had a custom extrusion made for these, everything else is CNC machined and they are heat treated. Very nice quality piece!

Nice Honda wing heel plates. That's cool. But yeah, info please. Is it yours? You built it?
Thanks! Yes it's mine, built it over the past couple years as my first bike. It was a complete rat nest when I bought it. She didn't run, had rigged up forward controls and brushed on bedliner over everything.

I designed the passenger peg mounts and had them waterjet out of aluminum at work, then sent them for powdercoat. Just a little touch but I like how they turned out. I love having a fab shop available, I cut quite a few parts for my bike there :grin:

I know Chris! Helped out at his shop a few times and so has another member here PunkBrad. I helped tear down the Ducati used in the Tron movie.

Chris has always got fun things going on over there.

No way! That's pretty cool. I'm always drooling over the posts he shares about the early 90's race bikes.
