Modern designs have the two wheels of a motorcycle connected to the chassis by a suspension arrangement, however ' chopper' style motorcycles often elect to forego rear suspension ("rigid frame").
The rear suspension supports the ' swingarm', which is attached via the 'swingarm pivot bolt' to the frame and holds the axle of the rear wheel.
