Thumb Progress



Wall to wall sidecars. They are my shed walls at the moment. But a proper wall/door would be good if I can sneak it on without the council complaining about me converting the patio into a lean to shed. . Only recently I seem to be missing a nice little Kingchrome 3/8 drive socket set. So need to be doing something soon I think.



Bracket to bolt to the unused lower engine mount. This picks up the front lower mount on the CJ sidecar and seems to put it just about right for chair axle lead. 230mm/9" or so.



Bolted on with only a 10mm/3/8" high tensile bolt but it clamps both ends of the engine casting so sideways should be very strong. Told my boss the 40x10 flat bar here is left overs from the work blacksmith shop.

Centre stand as a park brake! You can only try. It's mechanical & it will stop it from rolling.

Is there anything that says it has to be operated from the rider's seat?

Take a look at the "handbrake" on the new Urals.
a half turn shaft with a bolt attached that contacts the back of the foot brake holding it down.

so if you put your foot on the foot brake, then look where you can wedge something behind it to hold it on, thats basically it.

3 points

3 mounting points to connect old tech to new.
The 4th mount is the big challenge with al sorts of things that move underneath there. Swinarm, shock, linkage, centrestand etc.

Looking good bruce. You are nearly there.
You might have to make up a subframe for the rear .

Cathy finally took HER sidecar for a run today.
"After 2 full days of pulling it apart and cleaning it".
She even let me ride it .

Unreal to ride compared to the GSA.

.

Cheers Ian.

Laugh Her sidecar.

Thanks Ian.
Good to see the outfit with a decent shine again.
I also can still see the rub marks on the front tyre from the swingarm bolts. Another washer be good there?
Can't see the whites of the eyes though.
Must be a great girl your lady cause that is some machine she has got there.
Do you proud i'd say.

Cheers Bruce

Hey Pops, is that Ian Souters old outfit? Ian used to own Premier Sidecars here in Vic before he sold up and went bush.

I remember it was a brilliant outfit too!

Mrs pops looks very happy

Talking Today's

The underside is going to be a bit of do what you can with what you can. Bit like the rest really. Having decided to leave side and centre stands the going is tight. But flat bar seems to fit in and through some funny places. It is just a matter of triangulating in 2 planes or 3 as required to arrive at a fixed point to fix to so to speak. I just have to make some of it bolted connections or else it will be service by cut and weld. As some may not be able to be dismantled otherwise for maintenance etc.

The crashbar come top front mount. Fixes with 4 bolts 8mm.
May stiffen the plate at some point. Maybe after I bend it .





A piece of 65 x 6mm flatbar bolted to the sidestand bracket. with 2 x 12mm bolts quite secure. This will give fore aft stability to the lower rear mount and stop the front lower from twisting when I bolt it there. Somehow .



The same piece comes through to barely miss the centre stand and the drive chain. May trim it a bit here. But it is still nearly a foot short of the rear mount location. Hmm maybe the diagonal brace from the right rear footpeg mounts will do that.
We shall see in a future installment kiddo's.

Cheers Bruce

Actually, we haven't had a sidecar completion race for a while.

Come on boys, first to the finish line!
