done all the lightning. now Im only waiting for the spring. have one sent to someone who can messaure it and cakculate what I most likely need and its still cold and icy in the mornings so Im waiting for the other one to. glad I have a ohlin shock cause the parts are really cheap, allso very glad Ive got this one used with the wheel and swing for about 80$ cause a new one like it is over 2ooo$



not sure where to fasten the fender. on the swing, low following the wheel or higher up attached to the body. not happy with the front part of the hack but at least its a starting point for the next one

Me too. I did the proposed solution on my DRZ rig and it worked well. I recommend it. The side wall is high enough and they sit low enough on the V strom rig that it doesn't seem to be necessary. The necessity might change as they get taller.

got the chock spring yesterday. thought it was overkill with this chock and maby it is but it works really good. that I can adjust both "in and out" makes big differense. huge differense from the velorex. with a swaybar this will be great.
have been driving hard on the vinter/spring fucked up gravel road with volunteers all afternon to sort it out. gonna do some adjustments to the bike lean out, it pulls a little to the right and Im gonna try that before toe in. then its the lock on the trunk and some upholstery and its done for the summer

nice

Really a good job, I am sure it will steer and handle well after a few adjustments.
I like the way you put the frame tube over the body, like an ancient English Garrard sidecar. I am sure it adds greatly to the stiffness of the whole rig.

You were right to cut the fender--def looks better now.

By the looks of that box and security latch--you gonna be hauling gold bullion?

the box altered the proportions in a good way and its sturdy enough to make like snake plisken to choose my ride to transport gold through a apocalyptic new york:)

Im amazed over the supension on the hack. with the velorex it was like having a "boxcar" connected to the bike. now the whole rig is alive, I guess the added weight and width is a good thing to, but I can feel how the suspension on the whole rig work together

Hi. very happy with my rig and we have had a very good summer and fall so far. I feel that I have developed alot as driver this summer. really really fun and much harder than on a 2 wheel bike. this new hack runs much better and more predictable than the velorex I had before. very happy

I've been lusting after naked GoldWings lately, now I see one with knobbie tires and a hack, I'm in love!

I think you have helped me decide on what to build for my next bike.

Awesome job!
