Is that it the clue I've been looking for ??? Your an upholsterer it could be true I know another one who can do damn near anything. I think you hands are to clean to weld or fabricate for a living, but I've been wrong before.DB

Doesn't seem to have affected your fabrication skills.

Your work is over the top.

Funny how similar welding and sewing are. The actual welding or the stitching is the easy part, it's the layout, cutting, and fitting that inparts the quality.

yessssss

road the bike this weekend a bunch of miles with and without passenger
it was good to be out riding and it drew a big crowd at the bike blessing
unfortunately the bike shocks are way to soft and the car is way to over sprung
so new shocks are in order
talked with Claude last night and progressive today new shock for the car is on its way
also have a call into works
we will see how it all shakes out

"How can one man have so much talent"
Love your work
Claude didn't talk you into putting a sway bar on .
It made a world of differance to our sidecar once it was fitted .
I did not need as much damper or spring preload on the rear shock and stopped all of the wallowing when doing right hand turns "Left hand turns for your bike "


Cheers Ian

You need to scroll back to page 12 about half way down you can see some good shots of the frame with the swaybar going through the rear of frame.
