Will you be changing the front suspension of the bike to a sidecar one?
I wonder where that road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. Appologies to Mr Frost

Not necessarily. Depending on how lucky I am with the design, the tele-lever as is,  do OK with a sidecar. What the guy did on the build I'm copying(Albetros on ADV rider) was to fit a shortened tele-lever to lessen the trail, instead of fitting leading link suspension.

They say (  ::) ) if you get the combination of wheel lead, toe-in and bike-lean out correct, its not heavy on the steering.

People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Jou projek kom baie mooi aan, sien jy vat jou tyd en doen elke ding reg van die begin.   :thumleft: :thumleft:

Glo my, al is al daai goed van wheel lead, toe-in en what what mooi getune, gaan jy nog steeds 'n swaarder stuurwiel he.  Maar jy raak gewoond daaraan, dit vat net genoeg ry en oefening.  Jy gaan vinnig nuwe spiere ontwikkel.   :biggrin:  Waar hy jou vat is as jy lang paaie vir twee na drie weke aanmekaar ry, en dan natuurlik dorpryery met sy baie draai werk ook lekker aan jou fiksheid.   :lol8: 

Ek hou verder met baie belangstelling dop.  Daai ou se build op Advrider gesien, baie netjies jobbie daai.   :thumleft:

 :thumleft: Ek vat hom een ding op 'n slag en daar is nie haas nie. Ek het nog tyd nodig om Lyn te oortuig, maar sy het darem al begin kyk en vrae vra.

Ek is ook nie bang om foute te maak nie, want elke keer as ek 'n fout maak leer ek 'n manier om dit nie te doen nie. So enige kretiek/kommmmentaar is baie welkom.

Ek mik teen die naweek om die wiel aan die raam te sit. Behoort dan ook al die shock te hę.
