The AR80 has a pretty sweet looking swingarm, but its big ugly chain guard has to go.
Thats better. But the mounts need to go too.
I went at the mounts with a cut off wheel on my Dremel.
I had to cut of the "wings" of the front mount in order to get at the welds with the cut off wheel. Once they were cut down I knocked it off with a hammer and screwdriver.
I cut a tad too deep when cutting the front mount off. But a grinding wheel and sanding drum cleaned things up pretty well.
I didn't totally grind away the cuts from removing the front mount. They shouldn't show too much once its painted. I might even fill them in with some silver solder or JB Weld.
