    For the Perf Minded Hedz...

    Saw this on Fleabay and I know they are somewhat rare. Its a San Jose BMW braced swingarm up for grabs:

    Looks either lightly used or repainted/powdercoated. Someone should nab it.

    The price right now would be a good buy. But rare? Not when you can still send your swing arm to San Jose BMW and have them weld it and paint it. Current cost at SJBMW $179 without the paint

    Not many have done it already though, unless they are all hiding in your neck of the woods. ;-)

    Yeah, somewhat rare, or at least medium rare, I've never seen a braced early eighties swing arm as they were already a little more rigid than their predecessors.

    I had one on my '82 RS. My tech, Dave Anderson, would just have a local guy weld them up and powder coat them. It worked well.
