I'd just keep it "neutral" at the speed you ride the most, I did and I like it that way.
I love the finish work. Came out great!
With those tires, looks like the Goldwing is gonna get dirty! Do you plan any sort of protection for the radiator?
thanks for the nice comments. the plan was to paint it "gulf" blue but I saved the money and used paint I had from some other project. I dont know, it dosent look like a scrambler, which sort of was the plan. but it looks a little mean, I think I keep the handlebars insted of the motocross bars I planed to use.
I live along a gravel road and its hell with street tires when its wet, but I drive mostly on asphalt so I dont really need extra protection or a skid plate. I think I maby want some other protection for the radiator because I dont like the look on this one. the tires work very good on all surfaces
waiting for a new spring for the shock, did the brackets for the lights yesterday. my first atemts to tig weld alu to, that was not easy. tried to remove the black paint on the fender. to my surprise it coverd plastic padding and what seemed to be a tin can. the bike has run 40 000km, it runs and looks like new and the fender is reapaired with a tin can. strange.
I found it hard to find light for the back of the hack. stumbled on this on an old truck I found in the forest. most likely scania or volvo.
done all the lightning. now Im only waiting for the spring. have one sent to someone who can messaure it and cakculate what I most likely need and its still cold and icy in the mornings so Im waiting for the other one to. glad I have a ohlin shock cause the parts are really cheap, allso very glad Ive got this one used with the wheel and swing for about 80$ cause a new one like it is over 2ooo$:eek1
not sure where to fasten the fender. on the swing, low following the wheel or higher up attached to the body. not happy with the front part of the hack but at least its a starting point for the next one
some more pictures, think Il go with a higher fender, cut it so it floats with the rear fender on the bike.
That thing will be fun!
That looks really good
Plus it might save the fingers of the monkey
I have had nightmares about my daughter getting her arm between the wheel and hack:eek1
Me too. I did the proposed solution on my DRZ rig and it worked well. I recommend it. The side wall is high enough and they sit low enough on the V strom rig that it doesn't seem to be necessary. The necessity might change as they get taller.
got the chock spring yesterday. thought it was overkill with this chock and maby it is but it works really good. that I can adjust both "in and out" makes big differense. huge differense from the velorex. with a swaybar this will be great.
have been driving hard on the vinter/spring fucked up gravel road with volunteers all afternon to sort it out. gonna do some adjustments to the bike lean out, it pulls a little to the right and Im gonna try that before toe in. then its the lock on the trunk and some upholstery and its done for the summer
Really a good job, I am sure it will steer and handle well after a few adjustments.
I like the way you put the frame tube over the body, like an ancient English Garrard sidecar. I am sure it adds greatly to the stiffness of the whole rig.
thanks. did a search on garrard and found this site that I havent seen before. http://cybermotorcycle.com/gallery/sidecars/PMB_Sidecar_1955.htm
lots of cool hacks
You were right to cut the fender--def looks better now.
By the looks of that box and security latch--you gonna be hauling gold bullion?
the box altered the proportions in a good way and its sturdy enough to make like snake plisken to choose my ride to transport gold through a apocalyptic new york:)
Im amazed over the supension on the hack. with the velorex it was like having a "boxcar" connected to the bike. now the whole rig is alive, I guess the added weight and width is a good thing to, but I can feel how the suspension on the whole rig work together
Hi. very happy with my rig and we have had a very good summer and fall so far. I feel that I have developed alot as driver this summer. really really fun and much harder than on a 2 wheel bike. this new hack runs much better and more predictable than the velorex I had before. very happy
I've been lusting after naked GoldWings lately, now I see one with knobbie tires and a hack, I'm in love!
I think you have helped me decide on what to build for my next bike.
