Extended Stock Swingarm Group Buy
« on: February 15, 2011, 10:28:24 AM »
dpe_ele and his dad own a welding shop (Out Back Aluminum Welding) where they've been doing aluminum and cast aluminum welding for QUITE some time. He made his own +3 swingarm (pics below) and it turned out great. He's been running it for over a year now, and it's holding up awesome. In saying that.... He'd like to use his knowledge and skills to turn it into something great for the rest of the Raptor Source community.

Price: $250 + Shipping. And if we can get 5 or more... It'd be 225 + shipping. This group buy will be open for 2 weeks (to get the priceline set) These prices are good for +2, +3, and +4. Turnaround time would be 3-5 days probably.

Now who's in?!!!

1. j5irish700  +3     PAID
2. johny_ringo  +2     PAID
3. Blair +2      PAID
4. luis1978 +4     PAID
5. emacor" +3 black   PAID
6. egraptor +4   PAID
7. chowser2 +2   PAID



They Take, check, cashiers check, and paypal.  :thumbs:
Group Buy over. :thumbs:

What kinda of riding do you do? I'm mostly on trails but hit the dunes up a few times a year. Was thinking maybe doing a +2, can a skid plate still be use?

I do mostly all Trail riding. +3 works great for me, but the + 2 would be more for trails.

If i were going to categorize the lengths.
      
      +2 Trails/Very little dune
      +3 Trails/Some dune
      +4 50/50-probably leaning more on the dune side, but you could still trail ride with this.


And yes ill be relocating the skid plate mounting holes for free! :nod: :thumbs: :clap:

How do you go about relocating the skid plate mount holes?  Do you just get rid of the old ones up front and just drill two new holes farther back and tap them?  Or do you weld on some kind of bung and tap it to give it some more thread?

Also, I ride 50% trails and 50% mx track so in your opinion would you do a +2 or a +3?

One more!  lol  Do you use some kind of jig to keep everything square so when it's all done it isn't messed up?

Sorry for all the questions!!

Thanks a lot!

lots of questions lol, np tho

1. On mine i just welded up the old holes and just drilled and tapped new ones, i abuse the hell outa that skid plate(i high centered it earlier today on it lol) no problems at all, but ill be adding some beef, i dont want to have any returns.

2. Depending on how much power u have. I dont ride alot of MX but id imagin a +2 would be best for you(if you dont do much hill climbing), but if you do alot of hill climbing when you ride trails, id go with +3.

3. On mine i didnt use a jig, but i'll have one for this. Mine was .002" off I KNOW, i checked it with the calipers after every weld, i take warpage into consideration before and after every weld. I could go on(im a perfectionist) This is no walk in the park i know, but i do this kind of work all day every day :thumbs:

4. If something were to go wrong (NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!) I would eather fix it or replace the core. If you look i took carefull consideration to continue all the stock bracing and ALOT more...this thing is ROCK SOLID.

This is good quality work. I get $100.00hr to do things like this all the time. I'll probably have close to 20 hrs in each one of these. Do not be afraid of the quality. You wont get quality like this anywhere else.

If you have any more Q's i got A's, just shoot.

NOW LETS SIGN UP SOME PEEPS!

AWESOME Jon, way to get the ball rolling :thumbs:, you are going to love this thing!

OK, i checked with my powder coat guy.

He does black all the time, so he can do Black all by itself anytime for $40, but if i get more than 3 of you that wants black it can get cheaper(see below for details).

for other colors i have a $120 rack fee, so if more than one of u wants the same color, that would work.

so lets say for example some of you wanted "silver"
      1 person = $120
      2 people = $60
      3 people = $40
      " " so on..
I think a rack holds up to 6.

This guy is real good and reasonable, we have used others in the area, this is the guy of choice.
