speedo cable delete. i made this, this morning. i did not have a breather bolt so i tossed a bolt onto the lathe and turned one out. there is a hole that goes the full length of the bolt as well.



i pushed lefty out this morning so i can really see that progress i made on it especially since i pulled an all nighter on it. also notice the steering dampener


lefty next to Chris's shop truck.



to top everything off. i just got done giving lefty a test ride.

i think its time to go for another ride.

yea you to man. i'm leaving Thursday morning.


trip 1 140 miles
7/12/13

Well on friday i got the bike registered and insured so i was able to make a 150 mile trip on Saturday. Chris and i took our rigs to Redding CA to have coffee at the Coffee Bar. The place only had coffee :/.

For me the trip was awesome. The number one thing i like the most is that I made it home alive seeing that this was my first trip on a street bike. During the trip I was able to figure out my fuel mileage so I can plan my stop when I head to Salem this next weekend. another thing is that i was able to get a good feeling for the bike and found that it runs amazing.

MOA

trip 2 900 miles
7/18/13 - 1/21/13

the tirp for me went great. the ride to Salem and back to Chico was a steep 900 mile learning curve. (puns intended)

on the way out of CA i was 2 miles from the state line and i got pulled over for going "to slow".






so much in so little time.

trip 4 150 miles
8/2/13 -8/3/13

chico to bucks lake and back. 160 miles

what an awesome trip. up at the lake was an informal air head meet up. thier was about 20 bikes and 2 side cars. boxer metal was able to make it up.

the great thing is that i was able to get my dog into the rig for her first time. the only thing is that she was kind of obnoxious because she had to endure a lot of tight and twisties.

impressed-

Just the kind of sidecar outfit I like to see, very nice work man.
Those forks should answer a lot of questions on this site about what strong simple leading link forks should look like.
Keep us updated on the changes and improvments please.

Wowsers !

Lets see? You got the roller one week before 7-7-13. You get it all re-worked and a motor put all back together and installed. Apparently you have great mechanical skills! Probably doesn't hurt either to have Chris for a buddy!

As I read on you post "The number one thing i like the most is that I made it home alive seeing that this was my first trip on a street bike." This made me do a head shake I am thinking you are a long time street/dirt rider with mad skills up until that point. Totally took me off guard. Great way to start my day off reading a very cool thread apparently I had missed.

I actually saw your rig at the MOA Rally and scratched my head thinking that looks like the one Boxer Metal had up for sale a few weeks back on ADV. After looking it over I walked away thinking NO WAY its the same roller.

COOL THREAD! Thanks for sharing.

That was the rig I had for sale on ADV. We worked on it non stop between finishing up a couple of other sidecars before the BMW rally.

Nice to see the outfit I designed and built back in the late '90s is being refurbished and used again, lefties rule.

haha this is great, thank you, i'm glad that i can shake things up. its true that this is the same roller, my first street bike and the date stamps on the pictures do not lie. i do have some experience on dirt bikes and quads. currently the rig and i have traveled 2500 miles in only three weekends.

you must be Bob!!

i'm glad i can do you the honor in keeping this thing road worthy and i have nothing but good things to say about this rig. if you could recall any details could you enlighten me on some things about the bike. like what is the rear wheel and what did you use for the hub assembly on the side car. i'm sure over time i will think of other things.

thank you for building such a wonderful outfit.
