Jy kan ook altyd weer experimenteer met die SWIVEL konsep.

Lekker een Gerrard, ek hou die een met belangstelling dop.    :thumleft:

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. 

Sterkte met die projek.   :thumleft:

Sal later foto post maar hegtings is so dat verstellings maklik is en as jy hom reg het lock jy hom
...dis nooit te laat om n happy childhood te he nie !

Build a sidecar they said. It will be fun they said. Ja-nee !

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:

Ek ken nie nie ander manier nie. Van liniaal moet ek wegbly  :lol8:

Meet vir my die wiel wydte tussen jou bike en sidecar wiel. Net dat ek weet om nie daai wydte te gebruik nie  :laughing4:

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:

Weet jy wat se wiel afstand jy wil gebruik, of gaan jy maar net smaller maak tot hy knapper langs die bike pas ? Ek vra want ek beoog om so 1.2m te gebruik.

Luister nou MOOI.

Ry Pick & Pay toe.

Stop by 'n Fortuner.

Gaan le onder hom aan die agterkant en PRAKTIES meet die afstand tussen die agterwiele.

Klaar gepraat.  :laughing4:

As jy dink daar ry meer Subarus op tweespoor paaie as Fortuners dan kan jy hom seker maar gebruik as 'n maatstaf.

Kan seker nie TE VER uit wees nie.  :thumleft:

These are the basic dimensions I'm building around. From various sources my people have come up with these figures. Not set yet, so comments welcome.
