Update on the sidecar. I've since discovered I make a better sidecar rider than I do a panel beater/fibreglasser therefore it's off to the painters on Monday. He can fix the holes and paint it. So hopefully in 4 weeks time everything will be finished. Photo's then.

Please post a sound file of the monster when she's done, my two stroke buddy may finally become interested in sidecars, he finds carb honk, blu haze and the smell of burning Klotz intoxicating.

I can't wait to see this build come together because I had this dream to have a second sidecar rig with a triumph Bonneville or scrambler. I want to find a small tub and come up with a very cool but smaller rig, far different than the one I already own

G'day

Sorry for no recent updates. I dropped into the painters on the way to Pooncarie and it's coming along. Tank has been stripped and sidecar sanded back and fibreglass repaired. Just about ready for paint.

Updates and photo's as they become available.

Slack, just slack.

But then, what would you expect from a South Aussie.

Not much done but I did get a new sidecar screen and a new carpet made. Also cleaned up the seat. Note the logo I got made for the carpet for a bit of bling.





Hope these loaded.
