Scrambler hack

Got my old Velorex hack bolted up to the Scrambler yesterday, set toe-in and leanout this morning and it is on the road! Had to adjust the leanout after the first 200 yds, it was pulling real hard left, backed off on the leanout and now it goes nice and straight. The Scrambler handles it really well though I was bucking a headwind coming home and had trouble holding highway speeds. I was pretty well on the pin at 110 kmph, had a truck go by and break the wind and I could get back up to 120.

Back mount, the subframe is bolted to the centrestand lugs.

Pretty cool! Did you change your sprocket(s) so the gear ratio was a little better for dealing with a car?

You might look into shortening that standoff. It looks like it could be prone to bending if the sidecar hit a bump or came down hard on something. Just my .02 from an engineering perspective.

Upper rear one, or all?

Here's a mount that was done by Doug Bingham of SideStrider.

The mounts seem a lot more substantial.

Good point, thinking I might weld a tube and gusset there to stiffen it up.

So far gearing is stock,think I'll run for a bit and decide on a change. Not sure what the car weighs but compared it to a Velorex 562 a little while ago and I think it is heavier. Fellow told me he needs 80 lbs of ballast in his 562 and I haven't been running any. My brother and I carried the car to the garage so I doubt it is much over 150 lbs.

Cool - be curious to learn how it handles head and cross winds. Thanks for sharing your progress!

It handles crosswinds pretty well, almost better than solo I think. I mounted a windshield but haven't had it out with the hack on since and I'm back at work now so won't get a chance until mid July. Headwinds slow it down but other than that are no problem. I am really pleased with the way it handles, MUCH better than with the old IZH that it was originally on. Road camber has quite an effect on it but on smooth pavement with minimal headwind I've hit 135 kmph or about 80 mph and it has stayed stable and neutral steering.
