Curious if anyone knows who made this swingarm? I've seen a couple but no idea who built them.

I believe that is an old Roll Design.  Possibly from the DRD&D days. My cousin had one years ago.  His had the chain roller just like the lobo swingarms.

Sure looks like this one.  I asked the owner for some info.  I will post the info as soon as I find out.

I was thinking possibly Roll as well.  Seems to have some similar features to most commonly seen Roll swingarms.  Beams are two pieces welded together to make one tube for both,  and the clamping area of the carrier bearing housing is the same design not really seen elsewhere.

Yeah that looks to be the same make as well.  One on ebay could have had the roller replaced with the block style chain slider.

I think it was made by Westcoast Performance before they went into building Jet ski products.

Maybe?  The west coast ones I've seen are a little different in that they use single bolts per side to clamp the carrier.  Linkage mount construction is different too.  But they do make the beams the same way.

Here is a photo I borrowed from the other site of a west coast someone restored.
