    Don't just suggest it: show me an older twin shock swing arm.

    No! I’m not looking for an argument here.

    I was simply discussing the Mcandless ( and others ) involvement in swinging arm design.

    If Velocete came first, that’s just splendid as far as I’m concerned TT !

    Perhaps you were not probing for an argument there after all TT ?

    I think I was a tad over sensitive there, read it in a way it was not intended.

    I apologise sir.

    I recently purchased a 'rider' 53 Thunderbird. Sprung hub ride is better than I expected. Front end is a bit klunky.
    Question of front 7" half width. Can it be improved? currently it has standard shoes on a fixed pivot, are the self centering ones better? cheers John
