Just came across this on that auction site we all know and love.
Is this one of the swingarms that were recalled? looks like it might even have been repaired?

Looks like a recalled version yes but don't think it's been repaired. The rubbed area is more from trying to deal with scratch marks I suspect. When they cracked it was always round the bottom of the arm, never seen one round the top.

Yep that's scrap.
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Took the time to share with the seller that this type swing arm was recalled and why.
This was their response .....

It's a rivnut that was poorly installed. Once it's done properly it doesn't happen
Thanks for your interest

Hmmmm......

Thats a recall type ok. Tried to get mine back from the dealer to make a table lamp out of it but he was having none of it.
