Ok, did a search... nothing of value... the chain guard is needed for inspection in Jersey so i need to keep the tabs on the top of the swing arm and that way i can cut the plastic and make it appear as though the guard would actually do something... what i don't like is the Aluminum "L" bracket welded on the inside of the swing arm...

here ...

i can't see that it is structural but i can see it collecting mud and grass and sticks and twigs...

another shot...

I rocked it up and down a few times and the weld snapped pretty cleanly.

It had been abused by stuff the T-flex was tossing around, was 1/2-way gone already.
