    Sure, what in particular do you need to see...? I'll go out a shoot a couple, the fitting in the trees and the brake mounts. It really is a great piece of work.

    Back soon.

    Hey Pezz and Dave,
    Unit LL Fork photos...

    I have the fairing off while I am adjusting the mounting points to the frame. The last time I was out on it I got caught in the rain... No points deducted for being grungy...

    The leading Link is made buy Unit in the UK, this one had been on an '04 Guzzi for a short time and the fellow decided to put the m/c back into a solo gig. I bought it for about half of new, they slide right into teh stock trees but I also had to swap calipers as the stock '99 EV units were smaller and the bolt pattern was different. Not a big ta-do, I found two newer Brembos from an '02 LeMans and they bolt right up.

    I now have a complete fork assembly (less the trees) with the stock fender, calipers and brake lines for another project.

    Best,
    Rob

    Sensational :clap

    You can pick up bargains like that. I picked up a nice sidecar without bike for $800. New price $7000. Just trying to snag a set of Leading links but will more than likely just build my own. Hence why I like to see pictures of whats around.

    Im putting the sidecar on a R90/6.

    Here is a shot taken about 10 years ago on the original bike.
    It was on a Bonneville 650. I reckon I will repaint.

    Sweet deal Pezz...

    I like the design of that car.. I use a Velorex 565.


    The paint on that and the Triumph that it was attched to was called Jacaranda Purple, it was stock on the '70 Triumph Daytona... I had one.

    Nice dude... :D

    for the pics of those leading links radguzzi. Definitely helpful information.
    I ride a leaner (Flex-it) so I dont really count as a "Hack" rider, but its really nice to be able to take the whole family along on rides. My little girl is 8. We've got her hooked up with a fan and video games so she doesn't get too bored sitting in the chair. I'll post a pic here in a bit.

    Those are some seriously nice photos Mushman!!! I have some pix from my visit to a vintage sidecar race in NZ, but they pale in comparison to those!
    Here is a pic of my "new" hack. Just hooked up a 91 K100RS to my Flex-it.
    It runs much better than it did with the old 85 model.
