So here is weird one for you guys. My son bought a 83 Shadow 750 and it needs some work, first it needs a new rear tire and we fount an awesome deal on a complete swing arm from a 2010 shadow 750 that is brand new. The guy did a trike conversion off the showroom. After doing some looking we found out that the tire on it is too big for his bike ( it is 160/80 15 stock is 140/90 15). We really like the idea of a fatter tire in the rear so we are looking into switching the whole swing arm to the 2010 one. The measurements I took so far looks like it could fit. Just was wondering if anyone has done this type of swap before? I really want to know if it is possible with a few mods or if it will just be way too much work. I am a fabricator so cutting and welding don't scare me.
