Hellracer, It will go over 45 deg. or the floorboard to within 2 1/2" of scraping, about 1/4" from using all the side tread.

A two into one exhaust (mounted left side) would have permitted a straight lateral to the rear helm joint. Did you consider this?

Vortex, you did not notice my red suspenders and pipe, besides I'm a cheep bastard.
To tell the truth that thought did not pass thru my mind. I'll look into that if this gives me any problems. Thanks.

Got back last night from my first sidecar rally in east Texas and logged 671 miles by the odometer, the GPS showed the speedy to be reading 10 mph to high. Did not have any problems and even hit 95 gps mph. The only time I felt the car at speed was heavy ruts from bad tarmac patches.







My 630 mile stop caught by a fan.

Could otherwise be nasty in a left hander...

The frame rail would still be a quick limit. Unless it's road kill or debris in the road, i'm more worried about dragging the floorboard.

It leans no more. I've spent the last two days converting it to rigid with 3 1/2" more ground clearance. I had to buy a few bolts but every thing else was fabricated with a welder, hand and drill press, plus angle grinder.

I was able to get it out for a short ride that proved it needs more tuning as it does try to shake it head. It is also very lite but when I brought the chair up I was able to keep it flying for a couple blocks. That is something I have not been able to do with the Convert.

I'll get some pic's up when I pull it apart to paint brackets.

What is the main reason for converting it to rigid?
The ground clearance? Did you hit somethis on the way that scared you?

I find my self running mostly gravel back roads and with the leaner I have to run much slower. The other reason is I like the full body/mind riding experience. Kind of like driving 60+ year old cars and trucks.

Now that you have 2 rigid hacks how will their use differ ?
Or will it be a case of, I don't feel like shifting so , the Convert. Or just the Big one and the little one.
Will you be building forks for the Cali ?

Baker, I'm most likely going to build LL's but I want to try it this way for a while.

I'm waiting for rings for the Vert, so at this time I only have the Calli on the road and have a dual sport rally coming up in October.
