Sou lekker wees om fancy te weld, maar ek  doen ok en my goed breek nie. Vir die hoeveelheid kere wat ek dit werklik nodig het regverdig dit nie. Dan laat ek professioneel weld.

Am i correct there is no welding on the bike frame? Your sidecar will just bolt straight on using the engine mounting ext

That right. No welding on the frame or mods. Subframe bolts on to hard points on the bike

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.

Do you want the 6” stroke or the 4” stroke. ( your model number says 6” but the amazon pic is 4”).
There is a other WD member that will be coming to visit family not too far from me. Maybe he can take it home with him......

I came across your build on AdventureRider and I am starting out on building a similar rig using a R1150GSA with BMW sidecar wheel.  I hope you don't mind my stealing your very good techniques.
But anyway, we don't have the I10 in Australia, so I am starting with a similar unit from an I20, complete with ABS sensor!

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.

That might be a problem. Won't the sensing rates defer and mess with the computer. I'm just removing the ABS on my bike.

Thanks for the offer. 
I really like the wraparound brackets and the setting up of the bottom mounts is really simple.
Eagerly waiting for your top mounts.
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

Dit is vir nou die plan. Probleem met dril is waterdigtheid. Die cheapskates van brakpan af gebruik 'n wiper motor met reversible switch.
