Looks good......same "Jupiter" sidecar I'm using.
I've noticed since I have been following your blog
This one http://jupiterhack.blogspot.com/
I replaced the front wheel to 18 inch and now i have Mezeler Block K tire on it
Is there a Mezeler Block K tire in 16 inch sizes? Good question
I had an R80 monoshock and sidecar many years ago and found the Block K was too hard in the carcass, making the front very skittish. The Avon SM Mk11 was good, but two more modern and long wearing tyres like the Heidenau K60 Scout and Mitas E07 would be worth a look.
I drove out of the way, and I broke sidecar frame. so I have to build new frame to my sidecar
Here is some detail picks of my build
My sidacars new frame is almost ready to paint
Here is more picks of it
Sorry it all written in finnish
Any details on what failed?...Inquiring minds (less) want to know.
I'll second that! Looks like quite the event. I'd be all shook up.
Stinkin' yard sale on the double track!
Seriously ... I'd like to avoid all that, help us out here.

Now I have the bike ready and I will get back on the road again
a new frame is really good and is very pleased to drive again
Looks good. Did you put gusset bracing in all the corners? I have found (not on side cars) that the more weld joints you have and the spacing of them can cause metal fatigue and ultimately lead to another failure. Usually a failure will occur not on the weld it's self but in the metal adjacent to the weld.
I put car wheel on my beemer
I made adapter myself
I like the use of the word adapteri on your website, reminds me of my grandma and my dad speaking Finnish mixed with English when I was a little kid. They would add an I on the end of English words when there was no good word to use in Finnish. Dave Tuomala
Plenty of Finlanders in my part of Minnesota, too. You should go over there for a visit some time. The oldest Finnish-language newspaper in the world is the Finnish Anarchist one in Minnesota, I have been told.
I start to do little nosejob to my sputnik.
My monkey wants bigger windscreen. So i start planing something like this
But i don`t like it so I start to do nosejob
At this point I still do not know what this will be
My nosejob is now ready

And don't worry about your English, I have no trouble reading it ( I'm Dutch, so English is also not my native language ).
The Finnish in the articles on the other hand ........................
When I open his links I get a box that asks if I want to translate and I click 'yes' and voila, it's all english.
