Swingarm, part 2.
We [that would be Indiana – the fabricator on this project] have been busy since my last post. And to say that I'm stoked with the results would be an understatement. I did a little "napkin sketch" of approximately what I wanted, and he started twirling the knobs on his CNC grinder. Out came these little tributes to modernism.
The three pieces to the right in the picture is from stainless steel and won't be painted, and will look nice when contrasted with the black paint on the swingarm itself (center left in the picture). The "lid" in the bottom left in the picture is not quite finished yet and will be trimmed along the red lines for a more square look. Next up: bending and mitering the swingarm tubes.
