which is the sweeter mod...

what do you guys and gals think is more attractive: single-sided swingarm or the stretched fat rear tire kit? i myself would love to get the single-sided swingarm on my bike. it's HOT! how does that affect the bike's handling?

It depends on what you want out of it in the end.
If looks is all you want. The Fat rear is cool.
If you want to maintain performance and add custom look. Go for the single side Swing Arm.

I can get you race application for around 2200 bucks. No chrome or color thatís up to you to do but powder coating is cheap. If you want the guys email pm me. Iím not to give out for public. The company is located in Michigan and does lighten frames, swing arms, wheels and straightening of all of the above as well.

Racers need not ask for the email because itís my little secret
