Not if I can help it, no. I wouldn't be building the frame either but my HS49 and bicycle tires just do not do it for me. It's just not enough (for me) riding on the roads and hills in LA, so I have no other choice but to build a frame that can easily fit monster size moped tires and a GC160.
I'm gonna see what swing arms I can find on ebay from a small to medium size dirt bikes. There's tons of them on ebay. Whatever I finally choose, it wont look out of place or something out of a Mad Max movie that I just threw together. The swing arm will look like it belongs with the front half of the frame and it will be easy to acquire bunches of them. I'm not gonna use anything that's not easily available online in abundance and cost effective.
