Daar pop ek toe per ongeluk die cherry vanoggend. Ek benader n likerhandse robot draai op die regte spoed, deur gebruik te maak van my baie effektiewe dual control, gesplete agterbriek,... en toe gee ek te gou, te veel petrol en trek my eerste wheelie, hou hom so vir 10m en sit hom sagkens neer. Lekker nugget feeling  :biggrin:

Nog een om af te tick van die lys af en die leerkurwe te verleng.

Nee wat, ek het ook gedink die ding gaan soos n tol omval, maar dit gebeur so slow motion ek het genoeg tyd gehad om te registreer en nie te panic nie.

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.

That sounds like typical German engineering design. Good to see you are keeping the tradition. The SC is for a BMW after all...  :biggrin:

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.
