My homemade flex rig

I bought a California sidecar about a month ago and wanted to attache it to my R75/6. Well I finally got it attached as a flex sidecar and took it out for a ride. Boy, I don't even know I have it attached. The bike handles just like it wasn't there. The design also steers the S/C wheel in the direction of the bank. Now I have a real handling bike with with a sidecar. Here are some pictures before I put the cab on it.

Was there much trial and error on getting the sidecar wheel to steer into the turns? I've been thinking about building a leaner. Maybe next summer You did a great job!!!

Thumb My homemade leaner rear view video.

Here is a rear view of my homemade leaner sidecar. With the bags on I can lean 22.5 degrees to the right. I have since removed the bags and now have great lean angle both left & right. I had it up to 70mph and had no problem with it.

Sorry, did it the hard way and measured my own frame up. No problem slow or fast speed.

Looks good in the Video!!! Might need to be a little wider? Do you hit the car when you turn too hard?
