Hello.

I am currently looking at a couple of CBīs and some parts that are for sale.

One them has this Swing arm i that i am a bit curious about, but i canīt seem to find the exact model.
My best bet is that itīs from Over Racing.

Any guesses?

I think it's a JMC.

But, it has characteristics of both JMC and Metamachex. On JMC swingarms, the axle normally doesn't come all the way through like they do on a Metamachex.

I'm leaning toward a JMC that has been drilled out for a different axle.

They certainly do resemble.
But i find more resemblence to the Metamachex one i found the picture of? It has has the same lines down the swing arm and a more like angle on the support bar.

Looks exactly like the Metmachex on Izzy's CB900F.

Thanks.
From the pictures i found and was shown, it mostly resembles a Metmachex.
But itīs not something i know with certainty, the brand was unknown to me before i saw it mentioned here.

Does he have a picture/build thread? I cant find anything on Izzy- Is it the front page bike?



How about the rear-sets? Cool

Cool. Metmachex are still around - I recall a while back someone here sourced some swingarm decals from them;
