76- to 83 probably later. Honda has bronze bushes and the GS uses needle roller bearings......the pivot pin might cause some greif as i think the honda is larger dia, still you could sleeve the pivot mountings with brass bushs......

G'day Cromag

I was thinking of changing the swing arm but it maybe all too hard!!!!.
Thanks for the information, appreciated.
Might though look into prices etc.

Cheers

Oh yeah, the cb dohc and a gs swingarm are the same length....if you lengthen yours, make sure you cut it on the parrallell bits, or you risk making the swingarm wider...

I picked up a GS1000 81 alloy one for my sohc cafe project. only needs a couple of sleeves and 2 spacers machined up - pretty close really. may have to space out top shock mounts a little to. Rear axle same diameter. Its 2 inches longer and looks pretty trick. A bit hard to find though....
Oh and a couple of spacers for rear hub.
Cheers
