Hi can anyone tell me if the swinging arm on my w/hawk should be fitted with dust seals on the end of the bush ? also should it be fitted with a nylon buffer around the s/arm to stop the chain from eating into the metal? it is also cutting into the cross member above the chain so should it have one of those chain rollers fitted or is the chain just to loose? (although i dont consider it to be)hope someone can help as i enjoy riding it but my local m/cycle shops cannot tell me because its not the standard frame. thanks for your help and time Sam

Hi Sam I am in the final stages of a Whitehawk rebuild, info on Whitehawks is very thin on the ground, Mick Whitlock did not number his frames and so there is some debate about how many were built, as for the swinging arm it did not have dust caps fitted, or a chain slider, the swinging arm bushes are from a Land Rover, hope this helps
