Hell yea for doing what you have to do to ride! That looks like a lot of fun.
I love it!
That is one cool ride.
Wow, that's amazing!
Why is there a pulley installed on the hack wheel?
Look at the pics again....it`s apparently using a stock rear wheel assembly on the sidecar.
Right On Man!!! Enjoy the ride and thanks for the post and link.
Intrigued and curious. Is a "passenger" ever carried on the Harley ? What a sensation that would be.
I looked at the build pics on his site and saw that, but unless it serves a different purpose, why lug around an extra 10lbs.?
I like it.
Aye...but it`s hardly the sort of machine where weight saving is of any priority or importance....and 10lb ain`t going to affect it either way.
If for no other reasons,using a stock rear wheel would make for uniformity of size and same tyre sizes....and maybe keep things in proportion.
Suppose it`s kind of handy for a spare pulley and swapover to even out tyre wear too.
And perhaps for a bit of money saving and ease of build from spindle/bearing etc point of view.
I think it looks well and was a good idea.
The pulley could be his reverse
That's what I was thinking. I don't see a belt, so I was curious if he had fabricated a mount for an electric motor and somehow meshed it with the pulley. Otherwise , that pulley can be simply be removed from the wheel without having to make any other mods.
Hopefully the OP will chime in.
Nice job! It's been years since I've seen a setup like that on the road.
I think the passenger on the bike would be weird. Does it spin the back tire easily?
There was a fellow in Lexington 20 years ago that had a drive from the sidecar rig. His was based on a 750 Honda automatic. There was nothing where the handlebar would have been. And that's what made it strange for a passenger.
He took me for a short ride , in town, but I guess he wanted to show me how well it went. So it was full throtle, hard charging through turns, more full throtle then hard on the brakes. Get the idea?
But I didn't have a bar to hang on to, just my knees and hands squeezing the gas tank. A short ride was plenty.:eek1
