Default ezgo swing arm build

so ive been looking around. i believe i maybe the first here. a complete custom built swing arm to replace all the leaf spring components. why?!?! well i destroyed my leaf springs doing wheelies.......

with few modifications to the chassis and 4 holes drilled into the rear end i fab up what i believe is the first true ezgo swing arm.

right now its taken apart as today i was doing some finishing welding and paint but u can see the general idea here. ill update them tommaro when i get some sun light.

if anyone curious as to how i made it, i used 2 inc mild steel, o/d 1.5 inc mild steel tubing, o/d 2 inc mild steel tubing. the swing arm pivots on a 2 bearings per side pressed into the swingarm pivot tube. i also add grease fittings. the shocks are raptor 660 rears.

tools use: horizontal band saw, drill press, power drill, tape measure, tig welder/plasma cutter, redbull


sorry the pictures are going in reverse order. if u want to see it from start to finish scroll to the bottom.

i have to dis credit you on ur swing arm because u have a total chassis build, although ur fab skillz are **** nere pro. i love ur vision with ur cart chassis, ill be there one day.

im only 22 and this is my first fab job ever, its taken me along time to acquire my tools and im a self taught tig welder. honestly this didnt take much skill to create, i think we can all agree but i spent almost a week building this. one thing i did notice though, i cant say ive seen another electric swing armed cart. most people went in ur direction with a gas motor off of a big cc machine. i have a 485 cheetah banshee so i got my speed fix already this is just a stealth yard cruiser. also notice my trailer hitch i fabbed up

Looks good,My only suggestion is to reinforce the Brackets for the swing-arm mounts,they are kind of light,and will twist or crack easily when the swing-arm tries to flex under articulation and even when the suspension is just cycling up/down,due to the shocks trying to push the swing-arm down and also rearward with the angle the shocks are on.Just a suggestion,not trashing your work.It looks good,especially if you aren't real experienced,I've seen stuff that was done by people that have built stuff for years,and their work literally scared me.Have fun with it!

Nice those Cheetahs sure do run... TIG is a good skill to have and takes much practice (and money) to get it down. Keep going and you will be pro before you know it!

Here's my other twin 2 Stoker:
