    Where can i find a replacement swingarm for ironhorse yakuza sohon bucho.

    I cracked my rear triangle/swing arm for my iron horse yakuza sohon bucho and was wondering if anyone could help me out to find a new or used one. Its the same frame as the airborne taka.

    Thank you.

    Most likely you will not be able to fine one. Watch ebay for a parts bike. But don't hold yer breath.

    They don't sell them anymore at all. (Iron Horse went out of business several years ago.)

    Yes ironhorse went out of buisness but airborne taka took over their specs. Its pretty much the same bike but different company because they took over their bike designs. Legally did so.

    Well the Airborne Taka looks identical to the Yahkuza. Call Airborne.

    We don't sell replacement swingarms for our products. If one of our first generation Airborne bikes (some of which resemble IH stuff due to the factory that built them) fail under warranty, we will replace the frame or the part under warranty.

    I dont know how to explain it any simpler than that. If you have any further questions, please email us at support@airbornebicycles.com. Thanks.

    looks like you're SOL. i'd say that replacement parts are not almost impossible to find, but IMPOSSIBLE.

    Pacific Cycles now owns the Iron Horse brand. It's unlikely, but conceivable that they received some replacement swingarms when they acquired the brand. Wouldn't hurt to ask:
