That's not necessarily a good thing, is it now?
On the upside, the new 2 stroke oils really create less smoke than 20 or 30 years ago.
Pre-mix at the moment? I have clear oil tubes from the oil pumps. If it fails it will probably be whilst I'm riding it, so I wont be looking at the clear oil lines.

Do we have ANY good fuel in this country? Two strokes have low compression. I'm not afraid of using 91 in mine, as long as it's not got that ethanol in it. I also use 95 and I'm afraid I can't tell the difference in mileage, power, smoothness or anything in any of the cars orbikes I have.

Hi Dave

It's under a cover at the moment. I've just started preparing the body work for painting. The sidecar has heaps of holes to fill in so there is a fair bit of work involved. I doubt that I will get it painted in the next month or 2 but fear not once done will post photo's.

sidecar chassis

Good Job you are doing.

Would you mind telling us what sizes, i.e. the wall thickness for the tube, the centre section and the R.H.S. ?
Mine is corroded in places and I may use some new sections if possible.
Also, I can't see any reason to have the R.H.S. bent other than cosmetic.

G'day Kaveebee

Welcome to Advrider. I've made the chassis to look as close as possible to the original DJP chassis only better. The original chassis to be quite honest was thin shit material. The original couldn't handle the roads me and my mate Snayle took it on and got repaired several times.

The Square tube is 40x40x3mm. The round from memory is 32x3mm and the centre is 150x50x3mm rectangle tube. Original centre piece was a channel which was the weak point of the chassis. Use the tube. I use 3mm wall on all the tubing and I have found that is strong enough. My chassis's don't break.

If you need more accurate measurements let me know.

We are simple people.
Don't like complication or choice.

All going well we will be in the new digs complete with a room for overseas visitors.
So start in the West, see the best then wander about and see the rest.
PS will tell the wife when you get here
Cheers.
