    2003 iron horse sgs team (worth it?)

    i could be able to get a good deal on an iron horse sgs with a boxxer world cup. The bike is an 2003 model that hasnt been used but iv heard that they have a flakey swing arm in the '03 models and so im not sure. if anyone can give me any more info on the swing arm flex situation or whatnot that would be great. Aswell as some pros and cons about the bike.

    thanks alot

    How much do you weigh? I have an iron horse SGS with a boxxer and romic. It works great!!! So far, my swing arm is still functional and no cracks. If you get a really good deal on it, take it. Because it ever breaks, you can buy the 04 swingarm from e13components.com

    It's a very nice bike, and if you can get a deal on it, then go for it. But in my opinion, it's a little too much weight to pedal around.
