Single side swing arm

Anyone know of any single side swing arms to fit the Sprint 900?

The only single sided Swingarm on th T3's I ever heard of was the one on the "Lightweight."
That was a one-off attempt of a (german?) tuner to make the Daytona a worthy competitor to the Superbikes of that time. Unfortunately, Triumph never had any interest in that project, since by then the S3 was already about to come.

Here is a german writeup on the story of that bike...
New swingarm, CF bodywork, new rims...they did it all.

Sounds like Triumphs knew it would never fly. Love my old Sprint 900, but she is a bit of a brick. ...J.D.
