    Unfortunately none of those pictures are coming through. Sure is getting boring around here without all the pictures.

    Most of the links are dead ends too, but a few good DS Hack pics still left on the first page.

    >>High performance rigs often use an entirely different set up-hub center steering- which is much more automotive design in nature. This will usually incorporate a linkage to the sidecar wheel which also turns, but, since sidecars are asymetrical and the sidecar wheel will describe a larger or smaller arc depending upon the direction you are turning,it must turn to a greater or lesser degree than the front wheel. It gets complicated.<<

    Yes, hub center and also true hub center steering is quite popular. Steerable sidecar wheels , however, seem to have fallen from popularity. The Sidebike Comanchees had a steerable wheel but most today seem not to have them.
