Hi Bully. It looks great !

Funny I only dropped in on Barry last week as I was riding my outfit past his workplace.
He showed me some photo's of your tub (unpainted).

Back when I licensed mine as a sidecar, ~3 years ago, the Suzuki was already licensed in WA but they insisted I fit a handbrake which I did (mechanical, on the chair wheel.)

It has it's uses but sometimes the fixed side calipar squeaks and pisses me off. CRC sprayed on one side of the disc helps but I'm still in two minds whether to remove it altogether.

After riding yours I'm going to make a slight adjustment to mine and lean it out a touch more. See if I can get it to pull left a bit less.
(If that doesn't work I'll be utilising the occy strap technique on longer trips. )

Andrew.

Andrew give me a couple of weeks and I'll give you a call and come around so you can ride it, got it handling even better by putting a bit more preload on the sidecar shock.

Nice outfit Bully !!!!

Mate, since removing that giant lunch-box and bolting something a bit more stylish onto the chassis, this is looking like the ducks nuts !!!

Been a while since I was here, but a lot has gone on recently.

At last years OCBR ( Off Centre Beer Rally ) in our lovely south west , we had about 5 or 6 sidecars which is a bit of an oddity, so mine became a bit of a plaything, lots of beer consumed and it got a hiding





with the end result being this



blown head gasket !!! not a huge problem, repaired it only for it to go again, in the end I had 2 pulled head studs after consultation with my mechanic, who knows my riding style, we decided to remove the sidecar from the GS PD and find a more suitable tug.


TA DA





whilst the PD was getting a new front end and rebuilt , I rode the pants off this beast, it has so much grunt compared to the old BMW.

Fast forward 8 months, and the time was right to start the changeover. There is a bloke over in WA that builds a fantastic front end for these and luckily he agreed to build me one.



goodies on the bench



ooooohhhhhhh shiney bits









stripped the chassis and threw some jam at it , just to pretty it up.



put the beast on the lift and rip the forks out





















then sat the chassis along side to have a look





bit of cutting, bit of grinding, bit of welding should be able to make it fit.






more to come soon.

that front end is cool, Whats the reason for this type of front end? does it make a sidecar rig handle better? just a noob asking noob questions sorry just wondering?

Bully, looking VERY good.

The GSX14 would have to be one of the best bikes for an outfit. Certainly my choice if/when I move on the V Strom.
