Title: My Sidecar Project
Post by: Gérrard on May 15, 2019, 12:13:31 pm
I love sidecars (obviously… I started this board  :biggrin: ) And one of the reasons I bought the 1150 adv is to put a sidecar on it. For now Wify won't let me, and also its bleddie complicated fitting the subframe to these modern frameless bikes as a first try DIY eperient. I can get Humfree to do it, and though I accept his cost is reasonable, its inhibitive for now.

So, I'm first going to give it a go with something simpler  on another bike, and thinking of hacking the W650, but that would be sinful. I've already done a lot of research.

I'm not rushing (must first finish the trailer) just getting my ducks in a row.

First the bike. Anyone out there with a nice BMW R100 to swap for a W650 ?

And then I need a suitable tub, so if you have one lying around let me know.

JJR bought a secondhand sidecar on Gumtree and did the fitting onto his 1150 GSA himself.
Niemand het nog in die pad geval so dit was n sukses al lyk sy welding soos voëltjiekak. Vra hom om fodies te post :peepwall: ;)

Ek begin al self my 1200 se onderstel beloer hoe en waar ek wat kan aanlap.

Dit verbyster my dat jy dit nie lankal gedoen het nie. Jy mis uit op ure se rytyd en met die sidecar reg gebou kan jy harder jaag as met jou bike... en veiliger.

Nee ek het ook al die 1150 hard bekyk en weet hoe omm dit te doen Baie threads op ADV rider gelees en u-tube gekyk. Ek voel net voor ek gaan DIY wil ek eers et iets ligter eksperimenteer om die geometries en goed reg te kry en as Vroutjie sę GO ! is ek reg.

Luitenant  ek lees dit as n uitkak en aanvaar dit so, want ek moes al lankal planmaak en die enigste rede is dan voel ek ek het geloose, want ek kan nie meer n normale bike ry. Dis n kop ding. :deal:

Ag WTF ? The 1150 was bought as the sidecar bike, so I'm just going to do it. Done a lot of research and had my people talk to other people. Its not so complicated and Humfree has offered his guidance. Much appreciated. (also have Woody in my ear all the time. he is mos now an expert  :lol8: ) The sidecar community is an amazing bunch with help generously offered.

So I reckon, get the wheel, swingarm and suspension sorted. Get the dimensions for the tub and build the frame around it. I'm not re-inventing the wheel and using the Ural frame concept. It works. The subframe for the 1150 is after all not that complicated. It basically replaces the belly pan with some extra strengthening joints.

And google is you best friend.  :biggrin:

First up then I'm using an 1150 rear wheel that I sourced from Backgatjaco, who has been very helpful and kind on the price.( For now this is very much a scratch, tight budget project)

Let the rest of the experts chime in. I intend to step by step document the build.  :thumleft:

I've also downloaded a lot of info on specs for sidecar setup. And then I hope to get Humfree down for a looksee, before it all goes together (or, he has invited me to come visit his workshop to see how it goes together)

Nee, nie te sę veiliger as jy jaag nie. Dis die omval as ek stadig ry. Dis maar net iets wat ek wil doen, oor ek hou van dinge doen. Soos die trailer aan my 1150. Daai ding is nou bleddie gevaarlik en het my op 'n keer amper van die bike afgegooi met trial runs  :lol8:

Het jy jou kar se shock met so bell crank  verstelling gebou ? Ek is van voorneme om dit te doen, maar met meganiese verstelling, want ek glo as jy hom eenmaal getrim het, dan kan jy hom lock. Jy sal basies net twee verstellings hę, met en sonder passasier en as jy eers jou merke het is verstelling gou.

Ek het gevind dat die karretjie gelaai of leeg nie veel verskil in die ry as hy reg ingestel is nie.
Hierdie adjustment is nodig as daai padmaker die camber van die pad nie links het nie maar regs....plus die wind waai van links dan moet jy sterk wees in die arms.
Bv. van Bloemfontein tot JHB is die pad amper heelpad camber na regs.  Dan wil jy die karretjie se wiel laat sak met die actuator so in die ry totdat sy lekker uitlevel....Trust my  :thumleft:


Na meer as 3 jaar se ry word die sidecar ryery net lekkerder.
My 2000 km trip na die EC Bash was 'n fees gewees en ek het lekker rowwe paaie gekry en gery....wel stadiger as 'n KTM op die grondpad maar soveel meer relaxed.

Sidekar leer ry is soos fiets leer ry, as jy hom eers het dan verloor jy hom nie, dit raak net lekkerder hoe meer jy ry, en soos Woody se, jy ry baie meer relaxed.  Kry net daai sidecar reg opgetsel om als makliker vir jou te maak.  O ja en gee die sidecar hoogte sommer van die begin af.

Now that I have received the first part the excitement has started. Besides what I've learnt so far from Mr Google and chatting to a few guys, I really know nothing about sidecar build. Besides some basic dimensions I don't work from measurements. I lay it out and put it together. How difficult can it be  :lol8:

Some here in PE might know Davie from Davie's Motors. A DIY genius who can fix anything. I've know him since I was a young snot nose and much of what I can do I learned through him. His approach is that with a bit of skill (acquired through watching, learning and doing), time and the right tools, he can do anything.

Many years ago I walked into his workshop and he was working on a chassis. I asked what it was and he said he is building himself a s/s Nomad to pull his boat. I asked where did he learn to do it, and he said he didn't... he is busy learning how to do it. And that is how its been.

To me he is the ZEN in the Art of Motorcycle maintenance, and I'll dedicate this build to him. (seeing as how he is going to have to help me a lot  :biggrin: )

So here is the plan,... fit wheel to hub, fit hub to swingarm, build frame around swingarm, fix frame to bike, add a tub, get on and ride. Easy  :ricky:

Nee jy wil nie myne gebruik nie.  Onthou ek het my sidecar baie ver van my fiets omdat hy eers 'n swivel was...toe moes daar spasie wees as bike kantel.
Dus myne track wyer as 'n SUV.
Meet 'n SUV en maak hom dieselfde sodat as jy 'n tweespoor ry val jy lekker tussen die spore.

Gaan myne nog smaller maak...in Versie 3.  :laughing4:

Lyk goed Gerrard, gaan daar nog 'n skouer oor wees waar op hy gaan dra?
Of gaan hy net op die boute dra?

Ja. Ek en my ingeneur het hom bekyk. Adaptor is heel eenvoudig. Hy sę ek moet ophou worry en gaan advokaat speel hy sal worry oor ingeneurs werk  :lol8:

Wiel load bear op die adaptor en adaptor load bear op die hub. So die boute is nou net daar om die besigheid bymekaar te hou, en dra nie gewig nie.  :thumleft: Vir die heads up. Blyk ook my ingeneur, soos gesę, weet bietjie meer as ek.  :lol8:

Not necessarily. Depending on how lucky I am with the design, the tele-lever as is,  do OK with a sidecar. What the guy did on the build I'm copying(Albetros on ADV rider) was to fit a shortened tele-lever to lessen the trail, instead of fitting leading link suspension.

They say (  ::) ) if you get the combination of wheel lead, toe-in and bike-lean out correct, its not heavy on the steering.

But, when the build is done, I hope to visit Humfree so he can tell me what I did wrong and see how he does the leading link suspension. Ultimately I would like to do the conversion, as that is how a sidecar was designed to work.

Hi Gérrard,
not sure if you saw my sidecar photos - this R65 (I had one for 20 years), has the standard forks, so it does not seem necessary to change the forks.
This was used in the Nals Oldtimer Bergrennen - so it must handle well.

Yip, I'll see if its necessary. If that is the same model R65's I had, they are the short frame with shorter rake, that's why it would handle better. Same I think as the 1150 would do with tele-lever.

What I've learned from my research is that discussing sidecar set-up is like discussing tyres, CoG, handlebar risers etc. There's no one answer or magic formula... there are parameters, like it must have some wheel lead, toe-in, lean out on the bike etc. It usually ends in an argument with words like 'fool' etc being used  :lol8: Final set-up can only be made when the rig is complete,granted you stayed within known principles which I'm trying too.

There is only one constant that never changes though... most sidecars have three wheels  :imaposer:

Sidecar riding is COMPLETELY different to riding a motorcycle.
First you look forward to ride a bike that cannot fall over in mud. :thumleft:  But then you have never actually ridden one.
Then you have to get used to this new way of riding. :ricky:
The first trip I thought by myself...WTF....is this really what I want?
Once you ACCEPTED the change and you have your rig setup as good as possible and you get to know the little funnies you start enjoying it more and more.

On my last trip to the Baviaans, Reddersburg, Loxton, Sutherland, Ladismith and back to Riversdal, I KNEW...this is the way I want to spend my last years of riding a bike. :3some:

Al die geploeter daar in daai garage het my kop nou weer aan die draai.

Nog altyd ges my sidecar is 'n PROJEK.  Die projek is nog nie klaar nie.

Het al idees gehad om FUNNY tubs te bou en hulle op en af te haal soos die geleendheid hom voordoen.
Was eers 'n Landy gewees... Dan wou ek 'n sticker opsit..."Gelukkig het 'n Yamaha verbygekom"
Ander idee was 'n VW combi splittie.  Hy sou alles plat vou binne sodat ek in hom kan slaap...met 'n opslaan dak en al.
Verder het ek al gedroom van 'n Teardrop karavaantjie agter aan te sleep.
Toe kom ek vandag op die foto af.......
Oooooo donder ek ruik ROOK !!!!

Test fitting the swingarm. Its a temporary pivot at this stage. Need to get it on for now that I can work on the suspension (while I wait for my engineer to come back from his six week overseas holiday and make me the proper one. Very inconvenient. )

The swingarm is 44mm and the pivot bush 38mm. Drilled hole through swingarm to give a nice snug fit. Makes it easier to set up on my own.

Daai jack kos my R 180.00 by pawnshop.

Got the1150 rear shock from Bakgatjaco (the man is a star). While I'm on the RT taking a ZEN ride to Woody this weekend for a cup of coffee, I'll think about mounting it.

Also want to have a good look at his rig, just to make sure I'm on the right track (not doing it like him  :lol8: )

So I popped in at Woody's this weekend for a look at his sidecar set-up He acknowledges there's a lot of improvement he can make. What I've learned from his set-up is there is a wide margin for error and it will still go ok. Some will go better,, some not.

Rode behind him a while and he klapped it. His car runs just fine. So far I' happy that I'm on the right track.

Took ours out the weekend for a ride to Kirkwood and slept at Colcester.  Next day to Port Alfred and then home.  Just realized how we missed the old girl.  She runs a charm, very happy with her setup.  A little bumpy on gravel when not loaded, other than that very happy.  I was surprised at the speed I could maintain without the bike struggling.

Welcome. I'm just following other builds adding my own ideas, like the rap around brackets for strength. I might be overdoing it a bit. Let me know if you want more detail pics of anything. And keep us updated. You might also come up with ideas that will help. Don't hesitate with any suggestions.

The ABS is definitely going.  I made the comment because that is all there is available.  I have it on my Mazda BT50 and it is a real pain in sand.

There will be another brace on the bike subframe. See the attached pic I received from Humfree (here on the forum. Very helpful.) The second pic is a very nice setup using a Ural frame which I'm copying.

While pondering about the electric actuator I decided to do a Woody and use a linear mechanical jack. This will allow me to in the mean time set up the car and suspension. I'll make the mounts in such a way that I can just replace it with an eletric actuator, or do another Woody, and add a wiper motor to actuate the jack.

Maak jou eie electrical actuator.

Gebruik 'n jack en dan 'n 12v cordless drill wat jy in wire op die bike se battery met 'n switch op die handle bar vir aan en af en nog 'n switch om die direction (op en af) te verander.

As jy DIY kan jy maar net sowel al die pad DIY  ;D

For what it’s worth the road traffic act stipulation is a maximum width of 2.6m for a vehicle. Don’t know how close you are to that, was pondering legality of the final build.

There is a theory, and practice to it. Car tyre grips too much. You need a bit of slip on a non driven sidecar wheel or you'll put a lot of strain on the bike's drive. Cost of tyre v cost of clutch, gearbox, shaft, final drive etc

Today's job. Subframe complete. It still gets a brace to the main frame at the top and rear crashbar mount. That front mount is the weak point. I'm a bit worried I made it too strong. In a totalled crash that subframe is going to come out one piece.

Having completed it, I gained  10mm in clearance. Not bad design for an appie engineer. (not like some other real engineers who lost half the clearance on their car tyre sidecar.  :lol8: )

Not bad design for an appie engineer. (not like some other real engineers who lost half the clearance on their car tyre sidecar.  :lol8: )

In my limited experience view building the car frame is the easy part. That took e a weekend. Building the subframe is the tricky part.

Getting it where I'm happy, took me three weeks. If you an get someone to do the subframe for you, do it. Making up the brackets for it all to go together, is also straight forward. There's only one way for it to go, so its cut and weld

Gerrard, daai saaitskar kom mooi aan! Ek is beindruk.

Vir wat dit werd is, die motorfiets, weens die "rem" effek van die syspan se gewig aan slegs een kant, veroorsaak dat die hele voertuig in die rigting van die syspan beur.

Om dit tee te werk moet jy onbewustelik die hele tyd die fiets wegdraai van die syspan af, om n reguit lyn te hou.

Ek dink jy kan uitwerk hoe daai ge-wegdraaiery op jou bande gaan werk.

Dink maar aan motorbande.

Yip, have to remind myself all the time so slow down and take it easy. Already made some small mistakes due to impatience, but could fix it. That's what I love about metal. 

So far I'm two months into the project and way ahead of schedule, but the slow time is coming There is still a shit load to do with lots of down time when I send parts away for finishing, like the shock that still has to go to Superfoxi for a rebuild and then designing building the tub.

Kyk mooi. Die ontwerp is so mo driehoek te vorm vir sterk maak. Daar is twee slide clamps op elke mount. Hy kan vorentoe, agter toe, en in en uit skuif. 3-D verstelbaar Die mounts trek teen mekaar om stabiliteit te gee.

Need some help. I need this part for my build. Its a 12V electric linear actuator, with a handlebar toggle controller. This particular product Part no PA-17-6-2000 is supplied by Progressive Automations in Canada. I already have immigrant on it and otherwise my people are looking.

All help is appreciated as I'm not that sharp on the internet. I have mailed the supplier and Oshkosh found a supplier in SA with similar products. Parker Hannifin. I'm waiting to hear from the also.

Thanks.

Here is a link to an add on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006P58WK4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_ybS8Cb3X35SN7
Hi Gerrard, Snuggles here, I was working on one of our Sandvik drill rigs yesterday & I took a photo of the linear actuator & it's data plate, the manufacturer is based in the UK & has a website: https://transmotec.com/product-category/linear-actuators/?gclid=CjwKCAjw7O_pBRA3EiwA_lmtfh9GmtVYN8EPHhtJHGrYM5-92p2-ATGNo28ZW-rQVEfyMaEn_a2ICxoChxMQAvD_BwE
You can just click on the link above, I have one of the guys that works with me flying to the UK tomorrow for his 2 week break, if you want he can hand carry this back to me & I can get one of the other Saffers to hand carry it to SA for you. If you PM me your WhatsApp number I will send you the photos of the actuator on the drill rig, these are quality heavy duty actuators & on the website there are many different size & strength options.
I am enjoying your build thread, keep up the great work.  :thumleft:

Stage one complete. Sidecar frame fixed to the bike. Pleased with it so far, despite a few miss measurements which worked out well in the end... by accident or design.  :lol8:

Tomorrow night it goes on the wheels to test the suspension and send to Superfoxi for a fix up. All the framework then gets stripped for some small finishes, gussets and some welds etc. The 1150 will then also be sent away for a complete drive train rebuild.

Still lots to do. When it all comes back the sidecar goes together for test riding and to build the tub. Then only is it strip down and paint.


Lets build a sidecar they said.....  :lol8:

My apologies to the enthusiasts for the lack of updates Just pottering at the Moment fixing up pieces etc while waiting for some shocks from Superfoxi and to see Laban tomorrow to measure up the tub on his car. Then also waiting for a booking to give the 1150 some much needed TLC.

While there is down time I've put the 1150 back together for probably its last trip ( as a bike) to the thumper bash this weekend.

Vinnige vraag... kan mens 'n sidecar op 'n 400 sit?
Ek reken julle sal vir my se ek moet die tub van 'n bamboes mandjie maak om dit lig genoeg te maak... of hoe?  ;)

Ek stel al 'n hele ruk in sidecars belang, maar het nie die moela om nou 'n groter tjor te koop... en in elk geval ek's nog baie lief vir my DRZ ;D

Ek het al n sidecar op n 125 gesien, dis net n baie ligter konstruksie.
Hier is n paar KLR650's met sidecars op forum, oa Stevo
Die Ural sidecar is elkgeval nie n kragreus nie en doen baie goed.
So bou gerus joy sidecar en noet hom netnie 'over engineer's nie

Show me pics of the attachment and subframe on the bike. You have to make that higher too. The actuator only raises and lowers the suspension

Title: Re: My Sidecar Project
Post by: Gérrard on August 24, 2019, 01:34:27 pm
Will make an alu frame similar to the shape of Laban' and then clad it with aluminium. My worry is despite me laying on the metal it seems too light at this stage. With the rolling chassis I'm at 60kg. Target weight is 110kg

With weight distribution at this stage I'm right on the number at around 20% on the sidecar wheel. Accidental design  :lol8:
Title: Re: My Sidecar Project
Post by: Gérrard on August 28, 2019, 10:07:32 am
Last night the handlanger and I put the rolling chassis together for a final check. ( He's full of shit, so it helps to let him check. I tend to take short cuts) Just some small things left, like lugs on the subframe for the belly pan and then finish off for powder coating. This thing takes a shit load of nuts and bolts.  :eek7: And then we measured up the tub.

Lots of small things were done in the mean time, like fitting filler and drain plugs for the frames, making bushes to fit parts together, finishing off the swingarm pivot, etc. It just does not stop.

Three months down the line I can tell you this, I've enjoyed myself a lot, but its a shit load of work and time. If I had the cash together at one time, I would have paid Humfree the R125k to put a sidecar on the bike. Its a bargain.  :lol8:

And that is the rolling chassis done. At 78kg I'm not too unhappy. Was hoping for closer to 60kg. Reckon however I'll still come in at 110kg completed.

You need the weight if the bike an pull it and the 1150 can. Seems there is good reason Ural build their frames out of 50 pipe  :lol8:

After giving the seat a good inspection I concluded the upholstery was still good, so for now, a good wash and see what it looks like. Maybe just a nice black and grey seat cover later. Hardware needs a clean up and paint, plus need to add brackets to bolt down on tub.

No.  Bike and sidecar brakes will work independenttly with separate master cylinders of the rear brake lever. No interference with the bikes brakes.

Yes thanks. Dont know if anyone remembers Dapper Muis. Built Airheads with Freak. He got a bee in his bonnet to buy a Syncro so I've been given him bit of guidance. He saw  about the project and that I wanted the PA actuator so he bought it for me. Will get it in November. 

Every now and again one is in awe what WD's do for you. Not discounting how generous and helpful you've been  :thumleft:

Now it starts to come together. My trusty side kick has sent the drawings for the tub off for lazer cutting. Thanks Tiger8.

Got the bolts and nuts back from plating and some powder coat parts. Still waiting for the frame and subframe.

Seat frame has been refurbished and dropped off for covering

And the trail reducer is on its way. Thanks Humfree  :thumleft:

My people in America have recceived the linear actuator and it should be here in Novemeber.

Just imagine, needing to tackle a job on that scale when your cramped single garage has to accommodate two bikes and a car which all have to be locked in at night.

To work on a Pig you need space and plenty of it!  And that's where I'm stuffed. :(

But what a project! Congrats, G. The satisfaction factor must be immense.

Doen jouself 'n guns.
Vat daai sidecar en gaan ry...nie net om die blok nie.

Vat haar op 'n pad waar jy iewers LINKS moet afdraai.... veral op 'n afdraande.
Kom van jou 110 /120 km/h spoed af en probeer LINKS afdraai (90 grade pad na links)
As jy haar maklik en ek bedoel MAKLIK links kan indraai goed en wel doen jou brieke so met een pedaal.
As jy effens moet effort insit om links te draai sit daai sidecar briek op sy eie pedaal.
Om die RIG te stop net met die bike se brieke is bike brieke alleen heel voldoende.
Daai aparte briek maak LINKS draai net soveel makliker.

Hou maar aan, maar jy sal my nie oortuig nie. Ek was op spoed en het my timing met die draai verkeerd gekry. As ek in daai situasie wat ek was briek op die sidekar alleen getrap het sou ek verseker gerol het.

Is reg so.

Ek maak tot gebruik van daai LOS briek as ek so op 120 km/h cruise op die ooppad en daar is so 'n LINKS draai op 'n afdraande.
Dan het jy nie die gebruik van die throttle om jou links te trek nie.  Dan tap tap ek daai linker briek en vlieg sorgloos om daai linker draai op die afdraande.

Maar wat weet ek. Ek sal jou nie verder pla nie.  Maar ek sal daar wees vir jou om jou op te tel. :ricky: :ricky:

Lekker lang ent gaan ry deur die bulte en draaie en toe druk verkeer in. Geen oepla's nie. Grootste problem op die agterpaaie is die pad se camber en gebreekte skouer.

So bietjie meer verstellings gedoen en kar loop mooi neutral as ek versnel, op spoed is en stadiger gaan. Om veilig te wees het ek so by 80km/h gehou.

Ja mens moet eers kruip voor jy loop. Maar jy sal vinnig die gevoel kry en dan begin jy hom geniet.

Lekker lang ent gaan ry. Ooppad en toe agterpaaie. Moet die actuator uitsort vir die pad se camber. Andersins lekker smooth en die  selfvertroue groei. Gevat tot op 100km/h en loop seepglad werk net die arms heeltyd.

N paar manne het al die foutgemaak om te dink mens kan die outjies bou en verkoop - besigheid.

Sidecar Africa dink ek steeds het die wenner daar. Gaan fit n Ural syspan op jou beemer of koop die Ural rig.
Ek hoor ouens kla hulle is stadig maar ek sal elkgeval nie vinnig met een will ry want dan mis jy die punt van n sidecar dan nie?
Sou ek ooit die pad loop sal ek n Ural erenstig oorweeg en sover ek weet het hy n trurat ook.

Tom, min dinge in die lewe is ekonomies winsgewend as jy dit vir jouself maak nie, maar die satisfaksie wat jy kry as jy klaar is kan jy nie aan geld koppel nie. 

Wat die Ural aanbetref stem ek saam is 'n wen resep, maar dis nie almal se cup of tea nie.  Ongelukkig is dit so dat hulle al vervaardiger in SA is, maar dis nie te se dit is die beste nie, volgens my en baie ander is daar wel tekortkominge.  Dis die dat mense probeer om hulself te help, of hulle daarin slaag is 'n ander storie.
Ek vir een vind dat die ural se tub te klein is vir ons behoeftes.  En ja, die ural is ver te stadig vir my om op die oop pad te ry.  Dis so goed ek ry 'n 1980 50cc op die highway, die karre en trokke gaan my moertoe ry.  Ek ry bv. tussen 700 na 800km per dag met my sidekar grond en teer gemeng met gemak wat ek nog wil sien of dit gedoen kan word met 'n ural.  Dis nie dat ek jaag nie, ek wil net graag betyds by my volgende bestemming kom terwyl ek sight seeing doen.  En daai kilos doen ek in styl en gemak. 
Weereens, niks teen die Urals nie, ek wou ook al een gekoop het, maar is bly ek het nie weens persoonlike voorkeure.  Prys gewys, gaan kyk maar en maak jou somme, hulle kom nie cheap nie.

Ek het lanklaas somme gemaak, maar reken my build staan op so R45k. En ek het nie probeer geld spaar nie. My target as ek eendag klaar is, is so R65k. So as jy kan is dit die geld werd om jou eie te bou.

Daar is scrapyard builders wat reken hulle doen dit vir goedkoper, maar dis nie my manier nie.

R65 000 is nog 'n bargain.  Jy sal kan wegkom met minder maar dan "scimp" jy.  Kyk hoe netjies en goed gebou is joune.   :thumleft: 

Nou doen jou 'n guns as jy klaar is, gaan kyk wat sal 'n Ural tub jou nuut kos.  Toe ek myne so 5 jaar terug laat maak het sou die Ural tub my oor die R100 000 gekos het.  Niks fout daarmee nie aangesien dit hul besigheid is en hulle baie overheads het.  Maar ek is te armgat om dit te bekostig.    Ek het destyds vir myne R45 000 betaal, maar agterna nog so R12 000 spandeer om op te gradeer.

I have been following your build with interest and 'borrowing' a lot of your techniques for my own build on a 1150 GSA.
My construction pace is much slower than yours and have nearly completed the main sub frame, complete with wraparound brackets.
I'll start a build post on Adventure Riders when I get a bit more done.

Did you check that the subframe clears the oil filter, because I don't think it will. One of the mistakes I initially made.

I had 100 mm x 10 mm flat available so used that for the mounts.  A bit over the top but for the amount used, there isn't much extra weight.  It gave better purchase for the mounting bolts.
The engine mount on the gear change side is spaced out so the oil filter clears the frame.
I should have mounted the frame a bit lower as I had to slot access for the front mounting bolt.  Learn by mistakes?

In my humble opinion, building a sidecar too light can be a problem, and also too narrow.

That was one of the first pieces of advice I was given... don't try and build light, just build. I went on Ural width, 1310 and not more than 1350. I'm on 1320.

I've sat in a Ural tub and its cramped, so I went a bit wider. I'm hoping to finish it at +125kg, half the weight of the bike. I think that is the restriction. Still waiting for the spec.

Thanks. To me the fun is in the chase. I ZEN a lot on a build and one of my rules is not to have a deadline. It puts pressure on you and takes the fun out of it. I want to have it done by the end of the year, now we starting to make mistakes which wastes time.

Biggest challenge now is to keep Wolweseun motivated. I think we both underestimated the amount of work on the tub and the man has welded his moer off the past four weeks. But a fine job he has done so far and we are both pleased how it has turned out. Still a way to go, But the end is in sight. Two to three weeks and we should be done.

I'm looking forward to eventually just carry on with the rest of my life, which the past six months has come to a standstill  :lol8:

As hy lig kry die bike meer lean-out en vice versa. Die bike moet altyd effens uit lę in verhouding met die padoppervlak. Dit is sodat jy roll-out na regs kry om te kompenseer vir die kar wat links trek. As jy nou die kar laai sak die suspensie en trek die bike na links wat lean-out verminder. Nou lig jy die kar suspensie terug na zero setting om als weer neutral te kry. en anders om. Ook as jy ry op pad met camber. Die kar lę na links en wil jou van die pad aftrek. As jy hom nou level stel loop hy weer reg met verhouding tot die padoppervlak en hou op links trek.

Ai ai dis maar MOEILIK om die oningeligtes op te voed met tegnologie.
Dit gaan nie oor 4 of 6 drade nie...dit gaan oor die groter prentjie.  Die prentjie van die maklikste installasie.

Jy wat niks weet van draattrek nie hier is les nommer 101.

As jy nou 'n 12 volt battery IN die karretjie het dan word die goefter magefter in die sidecar vasgesit.
Indien jy nog steeds van bike battery alles gaan voer kan die unit nog steeds net in die karretjie kom.
Jy doen INTERNE bedrading net in die karretjie.

Die remote kom op jou fiets.
Wat nice is van die unit is dat indien jou remote battery dalk pap sou wees, kan jy nog op die unit die knoppies druk vir op en af.

Dus het jy nie 'n klom drade wat jy moet wegsteek tussen die fiet en die karretjie nie.
Ook nie extra drade wat VOLT DROP kan veroorsaak nie.
Ook nie extra drade wat rotte kan afkou nie.
Ook nie extra drade wat deur die son droog gebak word nie.

Laat ek net sien of ek reg erstaan. Om die gadget teen die weer te beskerm bou jy hom in die boot in. As die remote pap is moet jy nou elke keer stop, afpak, boot oopaak, gou bietjie stel en paar kilo's verder herhaal jy weer

En jy kan groter goed makliker in-en uitlaai.   :thumleft:  Miskien sommer jou klein ys/vrieskas.   :biggrin:

Woody het n sterk punt beet met daardie dreineringsprop idee.

Jy kry dit dikwels in die spaarwiel holte in motor kattebakke, en dit kan die verskil maak tussen n prop uitdruk, of die karretjie omdop vir water om uit te loop.

Een van daai voorsorg maatreels wat maklik is om nou in te sit, al het jy hom nooit nodig nie.

My day went real shitty with the bending of the trim did not going as planned. Got a bit of anxiety and saw my plan of getting the tub on the car by Sunday and hooking the electrics, go down the tubes.

Then we decided to for now weld up all the seams and Craig got stuck into it tonight. All done and as far as getting the tub on the bike I'm now three days ahead of where I wanted to be on Thursday. All that's left is welding the bracket for the screen and the boot lid.

The handlanger and I sorted the sidecar brakes and learned three ways not to bend polycarb.  :lol8:

Polycarb is a bitch to bend, but the trick is to get rid of the moisture first.  That is what creates the bubbles.

Need to put it in the oven at around 60° - 80° for about 2 hours.  Then you can do whatever you want with it.

Correct me here, after the required 2 hours, the polycarb is soft & pliable, no?
So one could make a form from wood for example and lay it over that to get the required shape, then trim it?
Or have I missed the boat completely?

Verbaas dat mens so min sidecar ouens op die forum het. Niks urals nie.  Long distance touring op n grondpad . n Sidecar tick al die bokse vir my.
Hoef nie eers n proper sidecar te wees nie. Sommer so n loadbed met derde wiel soos hulle in Rusland het sal ook doen.

No @ClimbingTurtle, after the 2 hours the polycarb is dry.  You can now heat it until it is pliable and shape it without it forming a million bubbles as in Gerards photo.

What happens with it is that when heated, the moisture reaches boiling point.  It then starts forming bubbles.  Even removing the heat at the exact point the bubbles start to appear is too late.  The polycarb will continue to boil for some time.

The handlanger and I sorted the sidecar brakes and learned three ways not to bend polycarb.  :lol8:

Polycarb is a bitch to bend, but the trick is to get rid of the moisture first.  That is what creates the bubbles.

Need to put it in the oven at around 60° - 80° for about 2 hours.  Then you can do whatever you want with it.

Correct me here, after the required 2 hours, the polycarb is soft & pliable, no?
So one could make a form from wood for example and lay it over that to get the required shape, then trim it?
Or have I missed the boat completely?

Good Progress. I am interested to see what the Fender looks like on the Bike.

That Tyre is a decent size, this and the Mudguard are an important aesthetic Part of the Bike, take your Time. What is the snag?

Either a very wide one that fits to the tub, or one that just sits over the wheel like the Ural. I'm first going to try the latter for now. Have one I can cut and trim. Does not look all too bad. I added brackets to the frame when In ut it just in case. We'll work on it next week while I wait fornthe bootlid to cut.

Davie on the left (with his son Carl). He can make and fix anything and has taught me the same since I was a youngster. But for him I don't think this sidecar would ever have happened. From the start this build was dedicated to him. The sidecar will get a name, "Nomad" after a stainless steel Chev Nomad he scratch build many years ago and where it all started for me.

Excellent build, Gérrard - been following from the beginning with interest.

But no one seems to have ragged you about your sidecar colour choice - field-grey!
I got very ragged about my field-grey Ford Corsair, as a student at UPE in the mid 1970s, which my father had spray painted,
but then I had very Germanic parents

Thanks. It came out as I saw it in my head, but being done, there are a few things I could have done differently to further improve the integrity of the structure.

Been commuting with it the past three days and its great fun to ride around. Very easy in traffic and no OOPLA's yet. The only upgrade needed is a new front shock. The current OEM one is tired and I think that's what's causing a pronounced nose dive/lilt on  right hand turns.

Dis nie dalk jou agter shock wat OPTEL as jy regs draai nie. Het dit ook iewers gelees.
Elke expert daar buite het sy eie idees op lead. Al wat ek weet is dat jy n happy medium moet kies afhangende van jou design en daar is die moeilike deel.
 As jy nie genoeg lead het nie is daai driehoek van bike wiele en sidecar van so n aard dat jy maklik na regs so n DIP kan kry

Dink klosgewys vir stywer. Hel jy vra my nou vas. JJR se fiets se gat is ook so papperig. Laas jaar was hier n ou by ons met n 1200 LC Trohpy wat ook n kar opgesit het. Sy klagte was ook pap gat, toe gee ek hom BlingKing se nommer om n stywer spring op die agtershock te sit.

Seeing the SC in real this SC is very very well build. :deal:
As said we went for a short ride and I must say, for a 1st attempt the rig is more than well setup.  Comparing the ride between the 2 I personally think his rig is a tad better than ours and I contribute it to a better tripple clamp on his.  A little fine tuning on his rig and you will not get a better ride. 

Well done Gerrard, you  (and your people you know  :biggrin:) really impressed me with a fantastic well build rig.  Many happy miles and smiles.  You build a rig that you an Lyn will enjoy for many years to come.   :thumleft:

Vandag bietjie pad gevat Jeffreys toe. N2 soontoe ou pad terug. Loopsoosstroop. Eerste ding wat ek bygeleer het is wind weerstand op spoed. Gehou by so 110km/h. Rig is mooi stabiel maar daai windweerstand op die kar eet jou.

Terug deur Van Stadens pas noue ontkoming op links draai gehad en bietjie gekook. Geleer mens moet stadiger die draai ingaan en dan stadig vesnel. Ek het op spoed (aspris) die draai in en toe ek meer spoed moet gee om die draai te hou chicken ek en beland amper in aankomende verkeer.

Maar, enige landing waarvan jy wegstap is n goeie landing  :biggrin: andersins het die rit goed afgeloop en Vroutjie begin dit geniet. Maak allerhande planne vir mods... kragpunt vir haar warm kombers, cupholder  vir haar koffie. Ens

Nee wat, wind is en bly jou vyand.  Daai linkerkant massa bied baie weerstand en as die wind hom ook nog bydam kan jy maar net spoed verlaag of baie fiks en sterk in jou arms wees en teen die drag ry. 


Terug deur Van Stadens pas noue ontkoming op links draai gehad en bietjie gekook. Geleer mens moet stadiger die draai ingaan en dan stadig vesnel.

My 1ste oops was dieselfde akkies, maar ek sien jy leer baie vinnig, jy kom stadiger in die draai en versnel eerder uit, so behou jy beheer met die throttle.   :thumleft:  Maar jy sal later leer, jy kan ook vinnig inkom, moet net nie "uit chicken nie", maar dan moet jy krag op die agterwiel kry (rat of twee af) en klou dat jy k@k.   :lol8:

And what do they say to those other 'experts'? :middlefinger:

Mudguard now fitted in its correct position and trimmed.

To get things to fit they way I wanted it, I had to build tight. So, to get the sidecar wheel off you remove the suspension bellrank, then the mudguard, brake aliper and then the wheel  :lol8:

Dis nie sommer net vir lek aan die leeu se bal nie.

Next is to make a carrier for the mudguard that will have a stay to the body to help hold the mudguard in place. That will give it three attachment points. Should keep it in place.

Maar nou dat hy aan is moet ek hom nog bekyk. Loadshedding het y uitgevang gisteraand. Dink as ek die binnekant an die mudguard so boog trim om die caliper kan ek hom dalk afkry sonder om die mudguard af te haal. Probleem is om my hande daar in te kry. Net makliker as die mudguard ook af is.

Eish I do not understand.... taking the wheel off such a big mission ?
I thought it is 4 screws and it pop right off.

The disk is attached to the wheel hub...?

Yes, and the wheel has a carrier flange that fits into the drive, so has to be pulled out first hence the caliper must come off.

The rear disk is normally attached to the diff.

Onthou jy hoe ek probeer explain het van die pivot as vir die trailer?

Op page 34 van die manual, kan jy 'n idee kry wat ek bedoel het. Skuif nou net die sidecar wiel agter toe en dan behoort jy 'n beter idee te kry. Al 3 wiele volg hul eie pad om die draai, en jy moet die sleepwa kry om te draai rondom die selfde punt as die die bike se wiele. Bietjie funky wiskunde, of (makliker) teken werk, en jy kom uit op daai hoek van +/- 15 grade...

Die wheel lead op myne is so 200mm. Minder as wat teoreties die spec van my bike vereis (225mm). Maar my wiel wydte is min. 1310mm. Als werk saam. Ek dink ek het dit perongeluk reg. My rig draai maklik met miniale scrubbing op die sidecar wiel.

Mens kannie te min gaan op die wheel lead nie, want jy het die risiko van tiep in 'n regs draai. Sal vir interessantheid kyk daarna, maar wil nie onnodige mors met my set-up nie want hy werk. Elke rig se set-up is uniek binne algemene parameters.

Title: Re: My Sidecar Project
Post by: Gérrard on January 28, 2020, 09:17:08 pm
The work so far. Repositioned the stabilizers to be perpendicular between the car and bike, with home made clevice joints on the bottom. They say that it is the correct way. It should be hard mounted, but with my method of construction I had to keep the top rose joints.

The sidecar joints must be strong enough that there is no forward/backward bending force on the stabilizers. Since mounting the car and our trip, it has not moved a millimeter. I did get a lot of wear and tear, and rattling, on the rose joints of the stabilizers the way they were mounted.

We'll see if I have solved the problem. Next to rebuild the suspension.

Legally, does a side car require a seat belt and the passenger to have to use it?  Also must the passenger wear a helmet?
AGATT for me is obvious, just a interesting point of discussion.

No more ATGATT, except helmet. Seat bealt not required. If I say jump she must JUMP !  :lol8: If you get it wrong in a sidecar, Wearing ATGATT is not going to help you much, unless its plated armor.

Its been a steep learning curve, if you consider we put our lives in it. But having worked from a known model, I was not too concerned.

Mooi man!
Taking on some new stuff this year too that I've never tried before. Busy re decking a boat. If I had know what was waiting for me, I would never have started.
It's an expensive game and grinding fiberglass is the one thing I really detest doing. The worst part is that the boat is out side in the sun and sweat and fiberglass filings don't go well together.
Another thing is the cost involved. I'm sure it would be cheaper to just buy another boat. What we should have done in the first place :biggrin:

Some revision and reinforcing required to the chassis, but no reports of trouble with the alloy sidecar body.

So, rubber mountings not required eh?

If you tell me the right thing I do it. Vibration on the tub and discomfort of the monkey has nothing to do with it. But I did learn that when you ride there is a lot of sideways swaying movement on the tub and when hard mounted the inertia transfers directly to the stabiliser joints.  Combined with incorrect joints and stabilisers mounted at incorrect angles, it caused excessive wear. The latter has been fixed. The rubber mounts are there to absorb the swaying on the tub.

I also found the correct rubber mounts suited for the correct pupose.

Been doing some paper work on the cost of building my sidecar for tax purposes. Reconciled my invoices, notes and bank statements. Taking into account I only worked on the sidecar from May 2019 to mid December I counted all hardware shop expenses. Most expenses I can ID as specifically for the sidecar. Bear in mind a lot was R&D and tooling I did not have and needed. I also allocated the expenses to the bike, like over hauling the drive train and tyres. Otherwise the exercise would be useless as the sidecar would not run. There is a lot of hidden expenses when you only estimate.

My rough guess was about R65k. It started out as a once off project with no expense spared. Actual cost which will go on my tax return is R100 810.71.  :lol8: Maybe 25% will be chopped as I don't have some invoices.

Next I must analyze it all to see what the bare cost of the car only will be. My aim will be to get to around R45k without compromising the build.

Eish, R100k  is serious money for a project ......

You could have put in a Subaru turbo engine in the bus ...... ::)

That is so but lot of that cost is also long wanted add ons to my workshop, so investment. The actual cost comes to R62k. This includes a lot of expensive luxuries like the suspension actuator which will not be fitted to a basic build but be for buyers choice. Like spending unnecassry money to upgrade your F800GS suspension. Engineering also cost a lot most of which I hope to do myself once I get my lathe/milling machine

Also eg the tub was a once off custom job which came to R12k. Building a commercial glass fibre tub I hope to half that cost.
