Jy ken nie die een van my nie, smaak my sy het hom self gebou.   :lol8:  Maar in verdediging aan haar, sy was omtrent elke keer reg.  Dis elke keer my mudgaurd wat afgebreek het en sy het die begin van die afval elke keer opgetel.  Nou het ek hom reg reggemaak en ek ry in vrede.   :biggrin:

Die feit dat jy hom SELF gebou het, beteken dat jy hom SELF kan regmaak.  :deal:


Daar is maar min manne hier wat dieselfde kan se...  :thumleft:

Lekker Gerard, geniet elke oomblik. Julle het dit verdien  :ricky:

Nomad lyk erg lekker!  :thumleft:

Gérrard, you could've over engineered the whole thing. So that you would not have to worry about failures whilst you struggle to drag 2.5t of metal along. Or you could, as you did, engineer light and purposeful, and then fix /improve weak points as they manifest. Second option is much more intelligent engineering, you end up with an optimised, fit - for - purpose end product. I.e. you can improve the light design, but not the over - engineered one.

Bear in mind I copied a known design and had a target weight of 110kg. I ended up at 130. They said dont try and build light, just build. Parts were over engineered, like the joints and frame strengthening. Like I said the the belcrank worried me and now I know and can design a proper one.

So 100m van Chris se huis af breek die arm wat die actuator hou en daar gaan die suspensie weer. Daai een het ek nie sien kom nie. Ons kruppel na Chris toe en drink eers koffie. Toe is dit ZEN tyd. JJR daag op. Hy het ook n 1150 adv sidecar en ken van regmaak. So drie ure later is die arm reggebuig en vas gesweis.

Thanks Joseph en Chris. Was n lekker kuier  :lol8:
