Daai Actuators is moer skaars en duur in SA.  Ook nie maklik om hier te kry nie.
Dus as jy hom invoer https://www.amazon.com/Progressive-Automations-Industrial-Linear-Actuator/dp/B006P58WK4/ref=sr_1_3?qid=1561709731&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_two_browse-bin%3A7123193011&s=industrial&sr=1-3

is hy R 4000.00 sonder belastings en vervoerkostes al klaar.

Daai jack kos my R 180.00 by pawnshop.
Wiper motor wa R 150.00 by scrapyard.

I rest my case your Honour.

Ok hy lyk nie so mooi nie maar hy werk....op 'n budget  :thumleft:

 :lol8: daars nou al baie sidecars deur baie mense gebou oor tyd. Wat ek nou probeer is om wat na goeie idees lyk, bymekaar te sit.

Ek sal maar sien oor die actuator.  Hy kan heel laaste gedoen word as daar ietsie op die budget oor is. Intussen maak ek hom manual net om my setup reg te kry

Doen die arm / cam gedeelte nou al. Dan maak jy net verskillende lengtes LINKS wat jy in die plek van die actuator kan insit sodat jy verstellings kan doen. :thumleft:

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.

Slowly with some cutting oil - its ok with a good quality hole saw but can be frustrating  :lol8:
