Velocity swing arm on the street?





#21
The McIntosh arms are nice, but on the other side of it if i can build my own WAY cheaper and tailor it to exactly what i want and if i have to change something down the road i'm not hacking into a 1k dollar arm. That and since i have the skills and tooling to do one i'd much rather tell someone that asks oh thats MY arm :laugh:

Honestly the welding on mine will look better than whats on the factory stuff to begin with :whistle: My plan is to do it to where it looks and performs as a "manafactured" arm and not a modified arm, wont look patched up by any means, heres some of my resume :laugh:(and cause i'm a picture w****)

Biggest problem i'm seeing is i'm such a hard critic when it comes to welding and metal work, especially my own that if i spend the money for someone elses i'm never gonna be 100% satisfied with it :whistle:

oh great welding master please come teach me how to tig lol

Yea the more research i'm doing the more im starting to lean towards a mac or tme arm
You won't be disappointed with either of those arms. I know first hand terry does a great job and has awesome customer service. He helped me out a ton on my swingarm because i was in a time crunch when I had ordered it and he came through with flying colors. I've had the arm for a year now and haven't had any problems what so ever out of it.
