Trying to figure out my longest swing arm option, on a project bike build. I'm using a cx500 frame and a 18inch rear wheel. How much longer is the pro link swing arm compared to the duel shock setup?

Does anyone know if the cx500T swingarm will work on a cx500 non turbo frame, and will the rear 18inch wheel work?

Much appreciated.

The GL500 swing arm has been used on a CX500 frame, but it requires major modification. Probably not worth the effort for the small amount of increased length.
You might be better off cutting and lengthening the swing arm and drive shaft. Both options would be difficult, expensive, and potentially VERY unsafe.
Are you building a drag bike, or do you just want to look cool on a bike with terrible handling?
