Got a new dog so I get a new project.

Well I drank to much of the koolaid and I have a sidecar project now. So for starters it will go on the GS but it may end up on the DR for another Alaska trip. I have the mounts coming from Dauntlis Motors they should be here any day so right now I am doing a little tlc to the sidecar so it will be ready to bolt up. I was going to build a enduro hack for the DR this winter, I already had some parts, but a little road trip and I picked up this baby just a few days ago. It came with all the mounts for a K100RT, the guy had loaded one of his kids and all there gear and went to South America and back with this thing. I am not quite that ambitious but Alaska again would be sweet, I could pack way more than I need.

A good dog is probably the best reason for having a side car.

Looks like a good project. That hack wheel should last pretty near forever.
Must have come off a boat trailer. I'd run em on my Ural if I could
.
Nice and square

hack

This is a Velorex sold by side strider in Van Nuys. They put a heavy axle on the swing arm, 1", and use a 5 bolt 12" wheel.

I like that frame around the front of the chair, great for carrying camping gear, etc.

gsuser, Good luck with the project.

Dog

The dog was a forcloseure rescue, the lame owner left the dog at the house.
He seems to be pretty good kids and other dogs he just needs to learn a few manners and he will be just fine.

This is getting spooky. We don't know Gooners real history but we got him from a rescue place. He loves kids but hates anything on the pavement with wheels (bicycles, wheel barrows, shopping trollys, some kids toys etc.). The first few weeks he couldn't get to sleep in the house as he was too hot. The one that sort of shocked me was when I was working in the garage and turned round to see it was seriously sleeting. Gooner was just stood in it, no attempt to get inside, or make a noise or anything. He'd had no training so we assume the previous people had simply left him to his own devices in a yard or garden (loves digging!). It's rotten how some people treat animals, but a bit of care and they seem to turn round.

The good news is that with the weird exception of the squeaky wheel thing he's now a really friendly dog and loves the chair. The only incident there was having learned to sit behind the chair windscreen he decided he didn't need them anymore and chewed his thirty quid doggles!
