Bloody hell Neil I'm with Johno. As for the original pockets in the fairing they are bloody handy. You'd be surprised what fits in there. I have my UHF radio mounted in one of them with all sorts of other goodies. Real handy for essentials like anti hangover heachache pills (Panadol) and Quikeze. Dont have to rumaging through luggage when dying of self induced headaches.
Still it's looking good.

I tell you what though the colour of the seat is ok. Will make a great canvas to draw on when we're pissed.

Now that we've got through all the remarks from the would be colour consultants :

The bike finally departed to have the leading links made, and returned from there straight the Phil's so that he could get started on the subframe.




It was tied down on the trailer in these pics so the angles are all a bit out of whack.

And then to Phil's. I'd seen some of his work When I helped Nev with his outfit, so I was interested to see what he had in mind for mine that was "different"


The start of the new subframe





Two rails and the plate joining them across the bottom of the motor.




There's not much need for comment with a lot of these pics as they are fairly easy to work out. I've asked Phil to have a look and make any comments he needs to.





The holes in the rails will have a plug fitted later on.





This one's not so easy to work out but will become obvious later. Lower pick-up for one of lateral links.




LH view of the subframe "cradle" I can't think of a better way to explain it. The front part of the subframe is in three sections, so that it can be removed if necessary, without totally removing the sidecar, so that the bike can be worked on.


Rear section of the lower subframe. At the left is one of the linkage points for the connecting rods.




Front of the engine, showing one of the joints in the 3 piece "cradle".

Left and lower sections of the 3 part "cradle.




Rear lower linkage mount.








Lower lateral link point.









Rear upper mount. IMO a work of art. Sidecar porn

Subframe reoved from the bike




Complete subframe. The two side arms of the cradle can be removed without totally disconnecting the sidecar.




Sidecar frame with all the mounting lugs attached. Phil has fitted the two floor bars that spread the loads from the mounts.

I don't think the dog was interested










Bit of a weird angle The start of joining the two together. Mock up links in place.

Yep. Compared to what I do, Phil's work makes mine look very ordinary.

Thanks Ray I don't take any credit for the subframe work though. It all goes to Phyllis.

The links and rod ends in the next few pics are for mock up purposes. The heim joints will eventually be steel units with teflon linings.










A better shot of the leading links




Made a couple of small changes.















Phil had finished with the sidecar frame so it went back to my place for the fitment of all the body panels/brakes/floor/fridge/fuel tank etc.
What I thought would be the quickest part of this build, would eventually turn out to be quite the opposite.
