John Shope has cleverly designed this swingarm to give your Softail that old school Pan Head or Shovel Head look with modern suspension geometry for a better ride. Our Softail swing arm uses your stock axle, pivot shaft, stock brake caliper, stock rear wheel and or you can do a chain conversion or belt. The ride is unbelievable and gives your bike the old timeless FL style look. This swing arm works on all Softail models including the specific swing arm for a Fat Boy. Level 2 Installation.
