Watching with interest Alex

So far, you got all my ideas covered That's a good idea of Andrew's too. I was going to suggest it but he beat me to it

What wheels? I'm going to have the rear bike wheel and the sidecar wheel the same.

And you'll probably still finish before me

The only time I've ridden with scray, was when I saw the need for the ability to mount the winch to the rear too.

This looks like an interesting project.

What we have done on a few outfits was to build a receiver hitch for th ewinch in the front and rear so the winch could be 'plugged in' at either position.
Here is a setup like that on a Tenere' / Much Modified MZ Sidecar


And another one

Sure Neil, sure. Your'e just too slow just like your sidecar building

I bruise easily Neil so keep the thumping to a minimum

Claude, great idea. I had thought of something similiar but your idea is much better and it uses 1 less bolt that I was going to use. Pinching that idea I am.

When it's finished it will look something like a miniature APC minus the gun turret (hhhmmmm now there's a thought). For those non military people that's an Amoured Personnel Carrier which I spent may a time in the back of during my Army days).

Keep the ideas coming.

Cheers

One outfit I saw had one rear mounted winch but also had a snatch block type setup so the cable could be run forward also. Looked kinda spooky to me as the angle of the pull if not right woudl have created some huge issues me thinks.
That one in the lower picture I posted had a winch with a cordless remote control option to it. You pull out this little antenna and puch the buttons while out of the way, I think the winch was made by 'Gorilla'.
Please keep your pics coming I love these kind of outfits

Well, I was sort of half on your side until the "slow" comment. Now you can go and get rooted
To make this race fair, you're going to have to start with a 'virgin' bike; no subframe and no leading links. As it stands now, all you're doing is building a sidecar. Even Dave would stand a chance if that's all he had to do You've already got a bike that's had a chair fitted to it I call 'foul" on this one Alex
















BTW, I'll pm you later with some pics. It's coming along very nicely

Not fair Neil. I only drew the plans last weekend and bought the metal yesterday and it's been too bloody hot to work in the shed. Went in there today for 5 minutes and the thermometer I have in the shed max's out at 120F and the red line went way beyond that.

Strangely though your chair looks very similar to what mine will look like. I have to admit that I drew a lot of inspiration from McCardigans Rommel.

I was even going to do the same as yours with the express bar mounting points, then I thought I would do it the same as a Wasp outfit but then decided to just bolt it to my existing mounting points on the K1100.

When I attached it to a purpose built bike I will probably go the Wasp way as I wont be taking any prisoners er I mean passengers.
