Swingarm Gets Colour

The first of our chassis parts gets it's fresh powdercoat finish and it's the first chance to see the colour we are going for on the prototype bike. As soon as this was back from powdercoat, it was a case of running the tap through the threaded holes and pressing the bearings into place, before bolting the aluminium pieces on and seeing what we've created for the first time.

We decided to go with anodised black finish on the machined aluminium pieces and these are bolted to the steelwork.

Stainless steel hardware, black anodised aluminium and blue powercoated steelwork. The brake caliper hanger slides in place and the chain adjusters have removeable sleeves to take multiple sizes of rear axles, should you wish a different option.

It looks great mounted to the back of the frame, but you'll have to come back in a few days to see that!
