I have thought about sc wheel led, weight and wide enough to be reasonable comfortable.
It was a tradeoff. The chair flies much easier now. With a heavy load, it acts pretty much the same as it did with the wider stance, except it doesn't seem to struggle as much once up to speed (but that may also be a function of having the lean and toe-in adjusted better now, too).

I like mine where it is at the moment, with the lesser skew (less arm fatigue), despite the chair flying a little too easily. I think you might just have to experiment a little and figure out what works for you.

it was cold this weekend, it was very easy to just stay inside and drink coffee. cant fit the bike with the sidecar in my heated shop. didn`t get much work done.
copied the swing arrangement from the donator bike in CAD and welded everything that was only spot welded before




started with the stuff that will connect it to the bike.( not sure what all the parts are called.) I will use the clamps on the bike and the bars from the velorex and make new ones on the hack frame. the arc that you can see on the drawing below will double as handle for the passanger and atachment for the top bracket and shock



Iì appreciate comments on this, if it looks ok or not. just to make sure I havent missed anything.

you can allso see my new home made muffler. wanted some small supertrapp but they must be made out of gold, this one cost me 40$, and they sound good

To my eye it looks like the bottom of the front one needs to go forward 100 - 150 mm ( adjustable one from near radiator ).

Pretend the back one is not there and what would happen if all the weight of the bike leaned on the sidecar.

If it was mine , I would try to run the rear adjustable from near where the chrome bracket is in front of the side cover and move the bottom forward to just in front of the weld.


Have fun.

yes I see what you mean about the front one. thanks. to move the rear ones, at least the bottom one I need a subframe, think I stick with these for now so I can get the bike running as fast as posible. its much work left and with some luck the roads here will be clear from snow in the end of march.

took it for a spin today. hard to tell how it handles, there was zero traction. the shock is way to soft. the weight fellt ok.
feels really nice to have come this far, now I just have to finish it
