I noticed you have braced your swing arm there Jan. Do you have any other pictures of it?

I've been thinking of bracing for quite some time as it's a flaw with the standard one.

it was more about estetics (and I just love welding : it's fun creating things) than reinforcing.

it doesn't need much to make the holes for the bearrings unround because of the welding in it's neighbourhood. I thought I kept enough distance, but still had to get the dremel out where it was too tight.

oh, and watch out for the rear brake pump when you do it. I had to find another one that didn't have a hose on it's inside, as the brace couldn't pass.
