I'm not really thinking full time 2WD, I'm thinking more in the line of the Ural..engagable 2WD.

I can't think of an easy way to get power from the chain driven motorcycle turned and into the pinion of a differential..much too complicated.

Simple jackshaft with a Mobec style chain box to split power with an axle disconnect for the sidecar axle shaft.


This kind is slick looking, but not easy to use. I don't want to be laying in the mud to engage the axle.




I'll be going with some more like this, cable actuated and easy to engage from the seat of the bike.




I know a guy that has experience building these for the rock crawl guys and Trail Tough in Oregon has a smaller one for the Suzuki Samurai that might be more suitable.

Chain drive bike with sidecar drive - Norton Big Four. Instead of a differential, look at a viscous coupling. Essentially acts as a differential with an automatic difflock.

If you need some help at Pick&Pull - getting tools or schlepping parts, let me know.

This looks like a great project.

Good luck.

Nicky

Well, after 3 months of back and forth with East Coast Wheel I finally got my parts back from their failed attempt to build me wheels. They totally suck as a vendor..lies,lies and more lies.

I really wanted my rotors and rear sprocket back...finally I might make some progress.


Viscous coupler donor vehicles? Subaru I'd imagine. I'll go to the auto recycler this weekend with the camera and look for donor parts.

we posted at the same time. Thanks for the offer of help, Nicky. P-N-P is really close and easy for me.

one thing you might want to look into is a "transfer case" off a mitsubishi eclipse/eagle talon/plymouth laser/galant vr4. I had a galant vr4 transfer case in my talon that had a disconnect so it could be put in two wheel drive as opposed to four. I think it would work pretty well for something like this if set up right. It basically takes the drive and makes a 90 degree turn to the back of the car. Pretty strong too, some dsms can make big power(600-700-1000) and I haven't heard of too many transfer case problems. Never had a problem with mine and I estimated that car at 300.

Interesting, but I can't make it work in my head? Looks like they mounted the case at the front and the main tube shot to the back diff..I can't think of a way to make that work for me.

Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm needing to get the chain drive off the bike over to the right so a traditional transfer case divorce mounted would work and point the outputs the right directions.

I don't have any experience with side cars or anything but am interested.

Your problem with getting the drive over to the side car on the R/H side I think could be made simpler by using a single L/H sided swing arm (a large problem in itself) then mount a drive shaft flange to the to the wheel. Depending on if the diameter of the hack wheel and M/C wheel. If they are the same diameter and how far forward the hack wheel is in relation to the M/C wheel you could possibly just run cv joints on either end with a shaft coupler in the middle.

Just a thought.
