Worked on it a little yesterday. My boy cant wait to go for a ride! I worked on the step to get into the sidecar, and started mounting the caliper. I also added some bracing to my shock tower.

I would get this thing done a lit faster if I would stay of off youtube! I see something cool on there and It gives me too many ideas. 2 hour of watching people shoot stuff with mini cannons and I have my very own miniature cannon that fire a .177 cal projectile using FFFF black powder and a short fuse. Wow what a waste of time hahaha. Oh well at least it goes BOOM!!!

Got a build thread on the cannon? That looks super fun and cheap to shoot, wonder how accurate it is at 25 yds ?

I would bet you could hit the broad side of a barn at that distance. Probably not much smaller a target though.

Yeah it could really use some sights. I'm thinking a lazer would be effective....

I think it might be kinda hard to light the fuse while the bike is moving.

Progress..............kinda

Back to the sidecar stuff. I spent a little time today, tinkering around with the brake setup for the car......nothing fancy, but I think it will work. Now I just need brake lines.
