More custom work

Indian Chief, 2009, came in not setup and noisy, left working great and sounding awesome with more than a few mods done.

Hey Brock!

Great work like always.

I looked at the pics on FB & could not figure out how the actuator worked. Can a guy get a clue here?

Hi guys, The actuator is mounted to the bottom of the motorcycle frame on the central subframe. Off the top of that frame there is a pivoted link that goes to the sidecar strut framework, basically making a truss. The actuator is attached to the 'peak' of the truss and as the actuator goes in and out, the truss opens and closes, thus giving the bike lean out or lean in. The lower framework that comes off the sidecar is on rod ends as well and allows movement. With the mounts on the Spyders' being so close together and the frame of the Indian being so massive everything got centralized and there is no traditional upper front mount. Works really well and keeps the sidecar wheel looking clean and tidy while still having the benefits of electric camber control. Bit of work went in to this bike :)
Regards,
Brock Smith
