Default Re: Panama jack failure!!!!!!

I had a very similar frame to that one, also a huffy. Broke in same exact spot. I remember the distance was very short between the swing arms so I actually ended up bending the swing arms a tad bit outwards for them to fit the wheel, so I figured that's where things went wrong. Not sure if that was the issue or not, but I think the main problem with these frames is that the luggage rack is welded to the swing arm creating hot spots around the welds which makes the metal very weak. They're almost prone to failure with our motorized bicycles.
