Hi All

Looking to see if anyone has ever seen or done a mod like this.

In this video there's a 66 swingarm shovel and instead of hardtailing they have removed the shocks and used some triangle plates, (instead of using solid struts)
Has anyone ever seen this or have anymore info on it?

I've never seen that before, and I lack the chops to say whether it's any worse an idea than struts -- I mean functionally. But it looks kind of kool.

It does look cool. However, my concern would be about the cantilever force on the swing arm behind the plate attachment point. Not sure how much extra stress the unsupported swingarm will take before failing.
