Ek verstaan jy wil maak dat die bike kan lê om draaie, maar sal hy nog kan wheelie?  :imaposer: :pot:

Jy sal maar moet kom kyk en prober...want ek kan nie al wil ek ook probeer.

Dink net as ek daai 260 liter BOOT vol bier maak ry ek op die agterwiel tot in die Kaap.

Chris ek het van 7.7 tot 9.9 km/l gekry.  Afhangende van die wind en met die sidecar op die dak.
My gemiddelde was 8.6 km / l op die trip.

Ek is happy  :thumleft:

Another weekend of hectic activities, but I managed to get a little bit more done.

Off came the center stand.  Firstly because I need that SPACE for my back fixing point and I wanted to tie in the system that I have constructed to this point on the frame.

So I made this 9mm plate to fit onto the center stand mounting points and welded the bottom part to the 9mm flat bar going through to the front of the bike.

Now it is one SOLID piece of mounting space.

Late Friday I managed to get my laser cut parts for the wheel / brake assembly.  These big boys do not want to be bothered with a R 134.00 jobbie and mine was stuck at the back of the list.  So after making some noise on Friday morning, I managed to get them just before they closed on Friday afternoon.

I could now construct my wheel assembly with the flange for the brake caliper.

Putting it all together took a while because the disk was catching on the caliper.  But a few adjustments later I managed to get it to run nice and free.

Bolted it all together using these fancy expensive washers..... :'(

Man I love this new Inverter / mig welder.  Still having some issues setting up the mig feed and current, so I reverted back to stick welding.
I am by no means a top welder, but when I weld with this thing and the flux curl up by itself, I get this warm fuzzy feeling that this is a nice weld.

Will have to decide how much TILT I want this bike to have. So I put my angle meter on the tank and went for a ride.
Under normal riding you hardly get to 6 degrees....so I figured that if I put a lean angle of 12 degrees mac on my rig, I should be ok.
The 12 degrees lean means I do not have to have the tub too far away from the bike before they touch...
I saw some rigs in Germany that is FAR away from each other and I did not like it.

So lets see how it pans out.

Next job was to make the connecting points where the rig will attach to the bike.

I have used Vesconite  http://www.vesconite.com/ before and believe that this is the correct material to use here.
I could make a strong joint by making my own bushes using this material.

Go an read how this product was DISCOVERED and how well it holds up in South African Mining conditions where mud and water is a constant problem.

I took a 50mm piece of my 32mm OD pipe and cleaned the inside out on the lathe.  All pipes have this RIDGE on the inside where it was joined.
After I had a smooth barrel, I started making the bushes itself.

Next was to make a STRONG joint where the barrel and the bush meets up.
I thought I could sand it on my spindle sander, but I did not have a 32mm spindle on the thing.  So I popped into my local hardware store and bought a 32mm steel hole saw.

Cut the end of the tube out and the barrel fitted in nice and tight.

This gave me plenty welding space to get the 2 pieces together.

Cleaned it with a flapper disk and sat back and enjoyed my work for the day.
