dirt floor build

My '76 Convert has acquired a attachment that I'll be able to load my wife in her wheel chair and take a ride. It's a long way from being finished but I was able to take the first test ride today. I found that the goose needs shocks with stiffer springs on the rear and a change in the front forks but it can be ridden.

I built a sub frame that attaches to the front motor and center stand mounts.



Here are pics after first ride.





I'm thinking of building my own leading link forks if I can find the right tubing.

Thanks to all the builds here I was lead to build my first hack and am looking forward to going the rest of the way.

If I remember correct the wheel track is 45" with 10 1/4" lead and the width of the top frame is 30 1/4". The floor deck is 48" before the nose is added.

Here's a shot of the subframe mounted on bike. I used the same type brackets on the opposite motor and center stand mounts except longer so that I could bolt through and into the 1/2" plug welded nuts inside the 1" sq. tube. There are also plug welded nuts in both the front and back ends of this to attach the car frame.

And another view (blurry)of swing arm from bottom.

Nice of you to do that for your wife. Hope you are going to put a gate on the back of that and a few tie down loops to keep her chair in there. A gate can work pretty good as a ramp too. Enjoy those rides together.

Yes there will be a hinged gate/ramp and tie downs for all 4 wheels. I'll be building a nose and windshield.

After reading thru Clancy's build and most others I decided that I mite just be able to complete something that would get the job done and be safe also. Can't let those lower blokes have all the fun.

Spent the morning fabricating up a fender out of .090 anodized aluminum.



Still need to add a bunch of rivets.

Nitro, I've had the same thought. The way it sits in that pic with 12- 18 pound bars of steel on the floor, was how it was when I marked the radius for cut out.

How far are you from Austin? I met a cool dude who was paralyzed from the waist down in an MC accident. He then built himself a hack like yours so he could wheel himself up and ride from the right side!

He later got into a slight accident and a while later was informed by the police that Texas law states the rider must actually be on the bike. so he build another where he wheels himself up, then climbs aboard the bike.

Real cool dude. He hangs out at Lovejoys on 6h street like all the time. Maybe give the place a ring and ask the owner [Eric] if he wouldnt mind giving you his info or taking down your info to hand to him next time he comes in. I'm sure he'd be down to help ya out with your build if need be.

I'll see if I can find some pics of his rig and post back
