Here's three swingarms for comparisontop to bottom, left to right... '74, '77, and DOHC.(ignore the obvious screwup with the 10&15/32"... it's 10&7/16" but I can't be bothered to go back and modify the pic)To swap the DOHC swingarm into my '74 frame I;trimmed the swingarm with an angle grinder and a plastic ziptie as a guide. ALL the meat comes off the "lopsided" side of the swingarm.Deburred the cut endinstalled new bronze bushingsInstalled. Greased.Used the early hub, late model cush drive and spacers, late model axle. Perfectly aligned sprockets.it was easy.
