    Does anybody have experience with shock absorber? I want to take adjustable absorber from classic type of the bike like Honda CB-400. In this case it will be necessary to change upper mounting of absorber in the frame.

    Today installed and adjusted the frame of the side car. I decided to leave the bike in the workshop - the frame with wheel are too light. Tomorrow will install the body of the side car.

    My first 100 km with side car have been done. Tested on paved and forest roads. What can I say - I am happy and do not regret that I did it. :D

    The small jobs necessary to do - adjust angel, install windshield, connect turn lights and tail light on the side car.

    Well done it matches your bike so well. Shame the sidecar body is discontinued. Please enjoy the fruit of your labours.
    Cheers, Bruce.

    Thank you very much for your kind words - it means that we spent our time and money not for nothing. Will be back home at October and probably will post the photos with windshild.

    Finally I installed steering damper, nothing new for most of you. I took the damper from VW Beetle. How we realized it you can see in the photos.

    Hope it will help to somebody...

    The steering angle became less, but not seriously to worry about it.
