Looks nice, where did you source the bronze swing arm bushings?

Thanks

I got these and based on the quality and finishing, I am expecting nothing but excellence from them. There are some cheaper ones on ebay, but i went for quality

yep, quality, what I go with all the time.

I'm installing a 550 swing arm on my 750, and wanted to install new bushings before hand.
