Sort of like this, but on a smaller scale...

I copied some pics of a Ural rig for the chassis then just kind of built it as we went along , I stayed with tried and true stuff , no experiments haha .
I made it so everything was adjustable for set-up .
The lower mounts are adj. for hieght as well as for toe -in , and they are also adjustable for wheel lead on the side car .
It handles so good that you really do not need any lean out on the bike .

Either I got lucky or I done good , a little of both I suspect . LOL !

Here's a shot to show why I built it , need the training wheel to ride in the snow !

That is sweet! It even has its own headlight. Are those metal spikes on the tires for the snow?

Not the cleanest or most artistic of shots, but near and dear to me all the same... that's my 2yr old son getting his first taste of motorcycles. Somewhere in the distance, my Dad's Strom lurks, too. Cheers!
