Default Who can make me a swing arm

Can anybody recommend someone to make me a custom swing arm for my Vmax either from steel or ally . I have made a Mock up so all the basics are their but it could do with tweaking .
I have a unmolested standard arm to build of if that would be better.
It would be a bonus if they are in the notts area .
If you know a good person for the Job pass on my number 07931328117 thanks

Hi bud it would be a complete ally swing arm for a Vmax with twin under brace and a one of shock mounts + a Caliper mount with no brake rod so it would have a pin system to hold it in place . I have made a temp one to see if it will work so the general idea is their but it will have to be tweaked

Something like this would proberly be best done as a convertion on your exsisting swing arm as all the critickle dimentions for mounting point and tork tube alighnment are already taken in to account but you could make a very attrative swing arm out of it with a bit of thought and with the adidition of the new bracing for the suspention mounting point just a thought if it is somting you might consider give me a call.

Hi mark I am using a gixer wheel that's had a max hub fitted in it. I have had the wheel in the bike for about 6 year with no problems .End it's easy to get Tyres for since it takes a 180
Thanks for the other replies I have got two options on the swing arm and can't decide which way to go but I will be posting pics of the bike when is ready. I hope to have it back on the road by may

Hi mark it's had half the max hub welded in . If you want to nip round and take pics measurements etc your welcome.
I paid 300 for the wheel . But the guy that used to make them died . Most people use a 900 diversion wheel
