    85 ATC 250R Rear Swingarm change

    Just bought an 85 ATC 250R this week and have posted a few threads already asking various questions. My 250R has a +6" swingarm and whoever added the swingarm extension also removed the shock linkage and modified the shock to bolt directly to the swingarm with no linkage.

    I am interested in returning the rear suspension to the stock swingarm with the original linkage and original shock (likely buy one and have rebuilt). Is ebay the best place to buy the used parts to make the swap?

    I think ebay would be a good option. I don't think you would break the bank going that route.
