Swingarm, part 4.
We are now some 70 days into the build, out of the allotted 180, and we have yet to encounter any major problems. I know I'm probably jinxing the whole thing by writing this, but I just want to share the good feeling I have at the moment.
The swingarm is almost done, and in a few weeks I'm going to have my "byggbesiktning", which is sort of a pre-MOT, that is conducted by an organisation called SFRO. The SFRO-inspector will check out the welds, materials used and measure all the angles to make sure that the bike will be road worthy when finished. If my bike passes this preliminary MOT, I can then go ahead and install the electrics, brakes and of course: paint the bike (Death Spray Custom: are you reading this?).
