Got my fender strut in the mail today, Really nice piece! Cleaned up real nice looks like I wont have to re chrome! I also have been working on me rear Caliper, It was painted wrinkle black from the factory. I have striped it down to bare metal and hand polished it. I also ditched the old swingarm. In place of another swingarm with the shock strut relocated to the underside.I pressed the new race and bearing in the swingarm. I'm trying to find Smith Bros & Fetrow Struts.If not I'm going to run the spitfire struts, which are pretty much the same thing ! Still waiting on my frame and mag from the powdercoaters.
