after a couple of days of stupid people , i finally got my honda VFR single sided swingarm complet with break disc and caliper . Plus one sweet looking VFR wheel .

there is a little rust , break caliper is in poor shape . there is no chain rotor ( i think) . but no problem . i will fix everything to work and look awsome !!

so i got the chance of having a better look at the swingarm and wheel.

The VFR swingarm is wider then the CBR swingarm . and i need to buid a suspenssion support on the swingarm .

Can anyone tell me where i can find some info on how to do an easy conversion ? Should i cut the swingarm or the frame, or bouth ?

So i have to make this part for the swingarm conversion . The rear suspension from the CBR is to short and wrong angle for the VFR swingarm







i uploaded the files with imageshack . when i tried to upload them here i got this message " You have exceeded the number of files allowed to you" is that normal ?

so , back again after a long time i got the chance of working on this project . I am involved in two other projects and my time is short .

the part that holds the VFR swingarm and the CBR suspension is finally ready , or 90% ready . i will instal some new bearings in the part + new bearings in the VFR swingarm because the CBR axle that hold the swingarm in the frame is thinner .

I installed the swingarm in the frame with the wheel just to see in everything is working , and it is just fine . the chain is aligned with the sprocket .

here are a couple of quick pics. ( i upload with imageshack , the forum uploader wont let me)

So i got the vfr swingarm off the bike to mount the spacers and bearings, i forgot to take pictures . i will come back with that later on

I mounted the exhaust sistem just to see how it fits . i sould have monted it before removing the vfr swingarm , but whatever . it looks great on the bike , i'm curious how does it sound .

I am waiting for the front end USD forks . i will post pics of it when it arrives .

here's a pic forthe exhaust sistem

update .

mounted the front end , looks good , mounted the swingarm , the rear susspension work great , mounted the rear tail and the front mask .

I am undecided with the front mask , i have 2 models , i think the black one looks better with the lines of the bike, what do you guys think ?

just need some spacers for the swing arm , and i think it is ready for a test drive .

For the rear tail light i am thinking of mounting a Suzuki Sv 650 tail light . the 2003 model . it looks awsome . and i think it will look great on my bike.

new pics :
