Hi Steve, yeh, looks bad mate. The dreaded Achilles Heel of the Swift strikes again!
I think you could perhaps cut and shut/graft new metal in, but it's in a fairly critical area so maybe the best answer would be to replace the lot with new as you would if it were accident damaged. Either way it needs to be done by a really good welder/fabricator. Wish you luck mate. edd.

Good news then! glad you've fixed it mate, looks a good job.
With regards to tyres I got Goodyear Eagle F1s on mine, found them to be really good especially in the wet. cheers
