What makes the seeley swingarm design better? (noob question)
« on: September 19, 2012, 10:19:53 am »
I just found out about the seeley designed frames and swingarms (mostly from reading about 70's Ducatis). 

Their chain adjuster seems novel, but other than that, it's just the same basic tube type construction as a stock Honda swingarm of the period (except ours are boxed at the pivot). 

Is it the size of the tubing or something to do with the chain adjuster a better overall design or what am I missing here?
