In googling around yesterday I saw an obviously homemade one on a ...K100 .....I think it was. Not a telelever.

Would it work on a telelever? Why not if it works on regular forks and then there's no messing around with the ball joint at all.

Like this ...

Something like that would work for ones self can you imagine the liability if you sold one and it failed, you may be able to work that out yourself but have to reverse fork legs to get brake calipers to line up.DB

ow after owning my rig sinse 09 I won't go into what I've had to rebuild,but I put my input here.If I knew what I know now.I would have never bought a PW built rig.. I like my rig don't get me wrong its really nice looking,but that don't get you down the road.I'm contiplating taking it else where and getting it done right.But then theres the cash flow problem..So I just keep repairing there shit. And keeping it on the road....

For some reason I keep losing this picture, it's there for a while and then when I go back to the thread it's gone so I reload and then it's gone again.

I downloaded to Photobucket so I'll see if it stays now.

This should work by leaving the brake calipers in the same place and use longer bolts and maybe small spacers to fasten, then a spacer and bushing with a a bolt through where the previous axle was mounted, then a hole for a new wider axle and have the LL in the same plane all the way down.

What kind of metal .. steel .. titanium??

How far forward should the new axle be??

Thoughts?

Fixing the fence


Neighbor managed to back motorhome into my fence and bend a couple poles, found a good use for rig and rope pull and strap it all worked.

Who says they things have no practical application ??????

a little ranting is good for the soul !

Spent most of the afternoon at home low grade fever and possible onset of a cold so resting up a bit.
Surfing the net for lots of my favorite things BMW motorcycles are some of my favorites but they've gone a little off the deep end it doesn't seem like they are ultra dependable and easy to maintain anymore.
I checked the used stock at 3 very good dealers, Nicks BMW WI,Gina's BMW IA and Moon Motors MN all dealers I wouldn't be afraid to deal with.
Whoops all three had new used K1600gts or whatever the sixes nomenclature is.So what's with that ?Thinking of Eastbloc fellow inmate who's the Comprador Bourgeoisie (google it)
Are the technocrat bourgeois BMW riders unhappy with the new steed ? Is there unhappiness in the kingdom ? WTF
I'm really surprised no one on the Hacks forum has embarked on attaching a sidecar to one. I know there's got to be a techhead out there who wants too, come on boys the recessions over !

I have a k1600 gtl. Absolutely love the bike, but I'd never hack it. The bike handles fantastic. Putting a hack on it would destroy the best handling touring bike ever made. A hack on a cb900, $3000 great! But not a k1600 at $30,000 no way.

Yeah ! one honest man ! One would be lucky to get it done for only 30, to do it justice it would have to have centerhub steering, 17" auto tires and a swaybar.DB

I know the guys who build this one. It is made of common construction steel. The axle should move approx 2 inches, 5cm forward. Usually trail is about 4 inch on a solo bike, on a sidecar you are looking for something just under 2 inch.

You'll be in better company, Stroker,Twintwin etc etc. Damned if I know how the PNW boys say my rig was a beta design the that's why it broke that's the biggest load of horseshit ever ! It's a manufactured piece of hardware it either works or it was done poorly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I better not get started ! DB
