LITTLE RIVER, S.C. - The custom sportbike craze is still going strong in the Southeast, thanks in a large part to the popularity of drag racing machines in the area. Myrtle West Cycles is on top of both aspects of design with its latest swingarm design, the Drag Lite.

Splitting the difference between bolt-on swingarm extensions (one of Myrtle West’s most popular products) and fully-braced custom racing swingarms, the new Drag Lite swingarm is intended to be the best of both worlds. The subtle underbracing offers significant strength under high torque loads while still ringing in at a more affordable starting price of $795.00.

Accessories such a nitrous bottle brackets and custom lengths are available, as are custom finishes.

Myrtle West continues to offer a full range of accessories, including the aforementioned bolt-on swingarm extensions (now updated with reinforced hardware to handle today’s even stronger machines) as well as a line of custom short-style mufflers for late-model sportbikes.
