Two new hacks

G'day,
So we have about recovered from our misadventure in Tassie last January and now are on a bit of a mission.
I have been asked to build a side car for the Black Dog Ride in Oz next year. It will be a bit different to normal and all will be revealed as the build advances.
While we are doing this I will also be doing my new modified hack for the Roadliner. So this will be a Dual build thread.
Some brackets have been cut and a few parts have arrived from USA. Progressive shocks on both hacks, linear actuator on mine to allow variation of ride height. Radiantz rear tail lights.
The design of the body is finalised for both of them and will be lazer cut ready for me to start wheeling.
Next week end will see the start of the subframe for the Moto Guzzi Bellagio.

See you soon.

So we are a week on and there is some progress. The mounts for the Guzzi are cut and mounted with tacks. Waiting to turn up the plugs and rear spindle for the rose joints.

The front mount looks ok and will work very well.

Next week will see the rose joints mounted and the start of the chassis.

Cheers

Well its been a while and there is some progress.


And on it goes.



Fitting up the swingarm.



Ready to load up and fit the shock mount so we have clearance.



This will be an integral part of the sidecar?



As will this.



Had an absolute crap day in the shed yesterday and no progress was made on this one or my new one.
Reconstructing my first sidecar and had some issues with the wiring.

Cheers

Hi Brian,

Good to see that that you are still enjoying the leaners.
I hope both of you fully recovered from that mishap in Tassie.

I'm guessing the reason for choosing flat steel for the subframe is ground clearance as well as keeping clear of the oil sump (maintenance) and the rear suspension, is it?

regards

Jens

Gday Willi,

Yeah flat plate was easier to set up with the need to remove the case for oil filter changes. Ground clearance was not really an issue.
The wife has lost about 30% of movement in her wrist and about 80% of the strength. Probably as good as it will get.
I will try to update the build tonight.
Cheers

Okay its been a while and stuff is happening slowly.

[IMG][/IMG]

Suspension is set up with a loaded height of 200mm from the ground. No more railway line issues.



The body was started. Not yet finalised on design due to the requirements.



We started to get some shape into the front after making some measurments.





This is the start of the bonnet. Got a few hours to go to finish it.



And this is another mystery part to be fitted.

So even further down the track, but still on schedule for the ride coming up.
The bonnet has been a long hard slog but is almost at completion. Weld a strap up through the middle and sort the hinges out.

Some of the other parts for this side car are sorted and the placement is basically sorted.

Another weekend should see the bonnet finished and all parts fitted. The final piece of this project is sitting in a box in the corner of the shed. About $7000.00 Ozzy. It will be so much fun to ride this rig.

Talk soon.

Its been a while and progress has been made. Building this has been both frustrating and fullfilling. Health Department, Department of Energy and Transport regs to comply with.



And sitting on top of this is this!
