Boxertricks,

That looks really 'unsafe'. I want to drive it.

Suspension and subframe

Claude,

pics of suspension and subframe detail as promised:

Custom built swingarm, taper roller bearings at the pivot, Hagon shock, you can see the mount for the brake backplate just behind the hub.


Subframe manufactured for a ZZR600. All four struts mount to this one frame, which is removed from the bike with the two large bolts top front and rear, and the two smaller lower mount bolts in about 4 minutes, retaining the setup completely. This leaves the bike with only two small lugs showing when the bike is in solo mode and makes it very easy to refit, even in a camping field situation. This easy removal and refit was part of the design brief for the fitting. Electrical connection is via a single waterproof plug to the bike. Note this photo taken during a test fitting, hence incomplete.

Boxertricks 3-wheel FJ

boxertricks: it's front wheel drive (???!!!) - so those big hoops on the back are just for show?
or added weight to slow it down...
though maybe needs the width to make it stable...
Would be interesting to see the mechanisms that allow a driven wheel to steer.
Wonder how bad the 'torque-steer' effect is; get it into a turn under throttle, maybe only Popeye could straighten it out again (?)
boxertwin, I want to drive it, too.

The engine and gearbox are fitted in the front end if I remember correctly, it looks pretty complicated in there. The back end is just the axle and wheels.I'd love to have a go in it,but I don't think I'd fit in there

'72 FLH wit '80 HD CLE Sidecar



Just got this mounted. Still have to round up a windshield and maybe a spoked wheel to match the FLH.

Very nice George, and the spoked wheel would tie the whole ride together.

FLHs look great with a sidecar, are those 16" all around?

My first outfit

1988 goldwing GL1500. The only history I have is that the bike was built in the States. It then went to Japan where the chair was fitted and somehow it ended up in Australia.

Ezy steer on the forks and adjustable electric brake on the chair.

Electric motor to raise and lower front of chair for easy access.

If any one knows name or builder of chair I'd be much obliged.

BTW, how do you people add so many pics at once. It appears you are not going through the ADVrider attach files process.

K11 & Hrd

Evening Gents.

Not great pics but an interesting outfit.



K1100LT and Australian built HRD chair.



Originally put together by [the late] Bob Martin in Sydney AU.



Mate Ainsley has owned it about ten years now.



Not long after he first got it he took it back to Bob Martin to have the leading link fitted.

The rear wheel was modded to take a steel rim.



No mean feat fitting a chair to a K bike.

Cheers Rusty.

Edit: Gday from CQ Eric. Thats a good looking rig.

you need to go through a photo hosting site, i.e. smugmug or photobucket etc.
