FIIK Wato. I know the steel they make the body out of is a bit thicker than normal body panels.
I'll measure the frame in the morning and let you know.

thanks Clancy. I have a velorex in the shed. It's a to light for the 1100, will probably stick it on the 80g/s when I get that project finished.

Must've been that mad glint in his eye and the crazed laughter.
Sorry if I'm going back too far. I'm catching up.

Firstly, for Wato, The main frame of the sidecar is 50mm dia. x 2.5mm thick.

The suspension support tube is 24mm dia and I would think about the same wall thickness, and the swing arm is 45mm dia.


The assembly started today Actually there were a couple of false starts because the owner, who shall from now on be known as Nev(Can'trememberIdidn'tdothatbit)Griff, wasn't sure how it all went back together. But eventually he learned how a ratchet works and it's two thirds assembled. Pics shortly. Looks good.

The day started with putting the mudguard on, then the lights, once the auto electrician had sorted the wirse out.










The grin didn't disappear from his face all day
Once the guard was done, the body was dropped on and fixed permanently.













Then the hinges were fitted and the rear rack was bolted on. Nev put a felt sealing strip under the hinges, as the original design had nothing between the hinges and the body.












He couldn't help himself. Still grinning, he had to drive it back into the garage






The front rack, half mounted, and the seats in, "Just to see what it looks like"
That was about it for the day. The rest will be fitted tomorrow and hopefully, the wiring will be hooked up.
