Wanted RM250-400 Swing arm for '79 Model
« on: March 13, 2019, 12:56:28 AM »
Guys,
I've been searching ebay the world over for a descent '79 250/400 Swing Arm and have come up empty.
Any tips on a wrecker anywhere in OZ who may have one, or better yet, does any one have one they'd be keen to sell?
Mine has a sizable crack and the suspension mounting tab has cracked off on one side.
I'm happy to pay $150 + the shipping if anyone has one in reasonable condition.
Cheers

I’ve been told it’s repairable, only the quotes I’ve received have been for $500-$600 including the welding and a good hydroblast. I figured I’d skip the hassle and try to find a descent used one as a new staring point.. finding an Uncracked one and then paying someone to hydroblast and go from there.

Happy to email you pics if you want to quote a price to repair though.

You can email me at Slakewell at bigpond.com , I don't normally do repairs anymore but there is a good guy on VMX facebook in Sydney doing some good stuff, I cant see how it could more than $100 if its just some cracks but email me some pics and Ill take a look.

Thanks mate, appreciate your advice and help.
I've shot you an email with 4-5 pics.
Let me know if they make sense or you need more to be able to get a good idea.
(perhaps check your junk folder in case they end up there, if you don't see my msg in your inbox)
Cheers
Steve
