    I cracked the swingarm on my 2008 mkiii and really want to keep this thing going. does anyone out there know if parts are available anywhere? nothing on ebay at this time. i thought one of the members of the family that owned iron horse open a store somewhere that sold parts but can't find anything out there. thanks!

    That gusset looks pretty clean - nice job. My wife does not push her '06 mkiii hard, but still don't like to hear about breakages.
    The shop the IH owners opened was in Boulder - Randall Scott Cycles - rscycle.com, also doing business under Giantnerd.com. I didn't see any IH stuff listed, but they could still have access to parts not on the site I suppose.

    You might also want to try giving Long Island Cycle a call the have allot of Iron Horse stuff. They were a big help when i needed some stuff in the past.

    You can also try asking the guys that work at The Hub in Long Island, NY. A bunch of them used to work for IH. I picked up a bunch of derailleur hangers from them for my Sunday and 6-point a few months back.
