DNA Basket case

Hi guys,
Forgive me if this shows up somewhere else. Posted once and can't find it. SO, I am new to Harley style bikes, I have had Yamaha's, got this basket case from a friend that took it on trade, he is a Honda guy. Got drive train lined up and tracking well after taking apart stuff previous guy had done wrong. I went 1 1/2" offset and could have got away with 1 1/4" but it's good. Questions I have is with the swing arm and the billet front end. Front end has blind tree, it is on and feels smooth but would like to check it and make sure it's right but don't know what I would be looking for. Swing arm has to be missing something. Should be some bushings that slide in and align the swing arm then the bolts got into the axis tube? My swing arm just hold it up and put the bolts in and the whole thing seams to ride on the bolt threads.
Any help is appreciated, thanks

The best tool you can get for these frames is a 90-99 HD Service manual. Most everything is set up just the way HD did and all the procedures and even torque specs are the same......
