    looking for the above, to suit a wideline.
    either a standard swinging arm or a dresda or manx version.
    based in the uk

    Hello. I have both a 750 and an 850 swing arm available for sale. I can send photos if interested? Thanks.

    Would the 750 swingarm work on a slimline Atlas frame?

    Not sure, to be honest. If someone else might know, feel free to chime in.

    No. The Commando swingarm attaches to the cradle surrounding the gearbox, bolted to the motor, isolastically separated from the frame. The Featherbed swingarm bolts directly up to the frame at the rear of the loop. Totally different attachment.

    There are two main variants of road-going Featherbed swingarms. The earlier one with pinched tube axle slots,

    or the later one with a brazed-on lug.

    Not sure when it switched over. Both existed on the Widelines. Either one will bolt up to the frame, but there may be variations to your rear brake plate that may or may not match the slot in the cast lug in the (directly) above pic. Do you have a rear brake plate with a flattened boss (opposite the axle from the actuation cam) to slide into the slot in the drive-side swingarm lug? If yes, then the later swingarm might be easier to deal with in the long run. If you're not running the stock brake plate, then run what you get your hands on. I've never heard that one is better than the other, but others may have opinions. There are currently several of the later versions on ebay right now.
