The difference here is mine is a Wee and his is a Vee. Also I am adapting or fitting a Chinese copy of the Russian copy of the German copy to a Japanese motorcycle in Perth and not Mudbourne.
So sidecars are not about copies obviously.

Cheers.

Hey Bruce, if you want any pics of the sub frame just let me know and I'll post them here, email them to you or burn a disc and post it of via snail mail

Dave.

Not going to answer but life is slowly getting into order around here. Should be home for a few weekends now so more pics to come soon hopefully. Haven't heard from Ian in Port Augusta for a bit. Did it arrive ok?

Cheers and thanks for asking.

Talking Subframe

Thanks Dave I may just persevere with my own ideas on this one especially as there are probably quite a few differences in bike and chair set ups. I will try keep the pics happening so will be open to suggestions as I go. (sensible of course)
Ian I hope the thing gets there soon and ok. Tell Cathy its not my fault the battery is flat now. I was going to keep it freshly charged at all times and the engine oil hot, .
Hope she finally enjoys it as well.

Cheers Bruce.

Haven't decided between a DL650 and a DL1000 for a tug yet; but would love to make my own subframe, so I'm in!

Sitting here. Watching. Waiting.

Lots of pics, please. And lots of words, too. That is, between work, family and sidecar building.

It's only half a Ural. And it's a lefty!!

Maybe it's just reference, for when the Tiger dies?

Some say you can't plan too far ahead.

Anyway, back to the DL650 / Ural please.

Talking Balls

Drill some bar at work then tap a thread at home. Cut 25mm of in the drill press. Then grind freehand till roundish We now have 2 almost round pre threaded balls








So many jokes here.
