Any idea what bike that swingarm’s from? If you guessed 1997 Suzuki GSX-R600, pat your­self on the back. “I used it be­cause it’s the same length as a CB1100F’S but made of alu­minium, and the front sec­tion is cast, which I like,” says Dar­ren. The brac­ing was all cus­tom work by a mate of Dar­ren’s called Jes Built. “He al­ways has an F frame ly­ing around so he had a good han­dle on what was re­quired. The pivot got new bushes be­cause the orig­i­nal spin­dle di­am­e­ter is larger than an 1100F.”
