Side Effects throwing out some bait...

Here's a pic for you guys and gals to ponder over. I have more, but photobucket is not being friendly right now and I don't know if I can post a facebook link up to view the photo album that all the pictures are in.

Oh man! Nice.

Hey Red!! Look at THESE welds!

I'm really satisfied with the service and features that SmugMug provides, Brock. No ads, custom pages, videos, backups. Fairly inexpensive for what is provided.

Side Effects Sidecars, Trikes, & Steerite

Hi Everyone, Here are some links to check out while our website is being redone. We specialize in everything from basic installs of sidecars and trikes, to full blown custom fabrication of what ever you like, racks, hitches, sub-frames, suspension, exhaust, wheels, off road, etc. We have been in the industry a VERY long time and have done work with and for customers and manufacturers all over the world. We are the people that build the 'Steerite' triple clamps that have been put on hundreds and hundreds of peoples trikes and sidecars. We also developed the original 'Leading Legs' as well as our 'Leverite' kits for you BMW guys with trikes and hacks.
I will do my best in answering what ever questions you may have as well as the best way to go about doing some things that are sidecar or trike related. Feel free to post below and I will reply. Check out the links below and see whats been going on.

Thanks for the go-ahead on the link. Here it is direct link to the photo album pages.

Thanks, I was trying to upload the pictures to my photobucket account but the sizes of some of the pictures are huge so I have to go through and resize them all first. The welder/fabricator/ designer is me, thanks, not been one for blood and gore of plastic surgery though, hahaha, I'll stick to the metal stuff :) Gerry is the one that does all of the Steerites so I can't take credit for his fine handy work either. I will post a link to the photobucket page when I have all the photos uploaded, keep checking in.

I will look in to the smugmug. Thanks

As for training, Gerry is a ticketed welder, did the schooling etc and is very trained in what he does. As for me, I guess when you've been around this stuff from day one you get to pick up all the skills that get passed along, my dad (Peter Smith) has taught me a lot. I have a huge interest in fabrication and always have. I was in the bicycle industry (mechanic in the DH wonderland that is Kamloops, birth of Freeriding) for about 13 years and have a huge understanding of suspensions and their workings as well as geometry and what works and what doesn't. I have my own shop doing fabrication work as well (bumpers, roll cages, custom stainless exhausts and headers, all custom) and it just comes to me, sounds cocky maybe, but sometimes I look at the finished product and think, 'Did I just build that?'. Soon the two shops will become one, as we are moving Side Effects to it's new location (my new shop, built to handle both businesses) as my mom and dad 'retire'. My wife does all the office work and Gerry and myself are in the shop. I'll be 32 this year and I think a fresh outlook on some things is a benefit, in any business, but when you're dealing with the weird contraptions that sidecars are ;) , and have been, for the last 100+ years, it's good to get out of the 'we do it this way cause that's the way it's always been done' rut. Not to say the old way isn't good, just trying to inject some fresh ideas in to the world that is sidecars.
Thanks for the compliments, I'm off to adjust my hat now, hahahaha.

Fuck 32 Years old............!!!!!!!!!

Brock your work is so "mature", is very factual, Very technical, No "Decorations" Is also easy to tell about your Bicycle background (I'm big onto Bikes too, Nicolai's, Balfa's all that fun stuff) who did you work with...??

Even if I'm not a sidecar owner Yet, I very much appreciate when something is done "just right" and for sure you craft is the shit.
