Our last build, K1100 with aluminum sidecar and centre hub steering

How to build a sidecar in aluminium!

Model for the sidecar in copper, made from old electrical wire (my dad is an electrician...)


Thees pictures are from the winter 2004/2005 when we first built the sidecar for the SV1000S and five years later we changed it over to the 1984 K100




















Then we jump foreward to 2010 and the building of the K100 with this sidecar!

A moose wanted a taste of a K100:


After some maintenance it finally started and we got to testride it to check if it was okay!


It didn't run like it should, it had been on the side on a pallet half the length of Norway in a lorry...*


Then we startet thinking about the construction of a new single sided suspension, we had one from the SV1000S, but we soon realised that it wouldnt fit the K100, so a new idea was forming in my dads head. All the templates were made out of wood with a staplegun and then we just bent pipes that matched the templates so and so... The wishbones length and placement was desided by mounting the tire to a table and then moving it around until it was in line and the lengt fitted the rest.







Templates for wishbones



First try on making wishbones:

Single sided suspension done!


The pipe bending machine we use, my dads work has much good tools!

Turning a new spacer out of aluminium for the rear wheel!




A big spacer! From BMW K100 4 bolt to BMW E30 5 bolt!



Bike and sidecar mounted.


Testdrive!

Welding all around.

Acid treatment and polish of all parts.



GSXR 750 fearing:

Before final paint and fishing touches, one year from this date.




We bought a K1100 which looked like something a crazy man could have designed and made, we stripped it and changed engine with the K100.

technical...

So you DO need a million dollar CNC machine shop and an engineering degree to design and build a side car outfit!!!

OOOOPS! Maybe not!

Thank you for the inspiring shop photos!

Thanks for all the kind replies!

Here's some more pictures from different occasions:

Krystall Rally 2013, me on the Suzuki GS500 solo bike, and my dad is riding the K1100.




Some more hacks, german, french, swedish and mostly norwegian:


























I've got some more from earlier Crystal Rallies and some more meetings here and there.

As we already had the sidecar from the Suzuki SV1000S it went a lot quicker than when you build everything at once.
The first time we got the K100 in October 2011 and it was done and driveable by 10th of February 2012, then we took it back apart in October 2012 and painted it and fixed some small stuff, changed engine to a K1100 new wiring harness, modded ignition and exhaust etc. It was back together for Crystal Rally the following year (2013). We then sold it in June 2013 and in August 2013 we bought a K100 frame and got an engine for free, then we started over again!

In 1990 my dad bought the first K we've had, and when i was born he built a sidebike sidecar onto it in 1993, we used this for over 150.000km in Norway, Europe and Britain until 1998 when we sold it and imported a Kawasaki ZZR1100 -90 from Newcastle, UK. Dad built a fiberglass copy of our previous sidebike sidecar and put onto this one. We used this for about 100.000km until we sold it in 2004 and bought a new -03 Suzuki SV1000S in September and then started building the SV1000S with centre hub steering, we used the SV1000S for about 50-60.000 km including a trip to Eurogespann treffen in Luxemburg 2009.

The Europeans certainly take a 'No Fear' approach to Sidecar fabrication...

:Stunning results!
