Boxer Metal Steib Sidecar
 
This followed me back to my shop the other day

...and then I found this

...and this really needs to come off of the shelf and be used

So I think I need to stick all of this stuff together and see what I end up with.

Excellent project!!

Ordered /2 tapered roller bearing from www.cycleworks.net and I soon as they show up I can get the front end on. I need to find the stock shock length for the leading link or just modify it for some stock post 70 rear shocks which might be easier in the end. I also picked up all of the sidecar mounts so I can build a simple mounting system.

Man I am envious, would love to put together a bike like that. I need to sell my R1100RT and get a hack.

I few things have changes. Instead of a R90 I have decided to use a crusty 78 RS that I had sitting around. Front end is installed. I still need to do a few mods to the /2 leading link to get it to clear the front engine cover.

Cool project, Chris!

What are your plans for brakes? Will you weld caliper brackets on the Earles or find use a drum? How will you mod the brace to clear the ignition cover?

Don't cut the brace off the leading links! Play with different points covers-some provide more clearance than others and you will probably be able to make it work without cutting up the forks. Worst case you can shave the back of the brace, but try to find a lower profile cover before attacking the fork.

For the brakes I will run a very large single disc and yes, I'm going to cut the front end up to make it fit. As easy as I can modify it I can make it original again:D
