Should I open one more, with pictures of my homebuild leaner as well?
After pulling the sidecar down to check it out I do not think it will be a good idea to mount it to a heavy road bike
You do get what you pay for .
The wife wants me to fit it up to a small trail bike for her to ride .I think that is the way to go with this sidecar .
SWMBO has a way of getting what she wants ehh?
You know everyone will be happier, when she is happy.
You are right there mate .
Cathy has been one happy camper since she has got her own sidecar .
The date on photo is wrong Should be 2011.
Like the hippo hands.
I just come back from a small ride around the block on our new leaner sidecar .
This is going to be a fun bike to ride .
It is just tack welded for now until i work out the best place for every thing and then build the subframe to match the mounts .
Work is in progress to make it into a leaner .
I have set the frount mount higher than the rear mount so the sidecar turns with the lean of the bike .
G'day Ian its looking good !!! How far over to the left side (chair side) will it lean?
Hi Brendan J .At the moment the bike will rest right over on the sidecar. But there is no room for my foot when it does . Still have to make a stop up to limit the travel.
How are you going with your old sidecar .?
G'day Ian I'm heading to the auction next wednesday (30th) to see what happens to it. I'm hoping to buy the sidecar back cheaply from who ever buys the bike.
How did you get on at the auction Brendan, do you still have a sidecar
The wife took the leaner sidecar for a ride again today , She said she will not ride it as a leaner, it was too heavy for her when going slow and when she stopped.She said the sidecar goes great no head shake no pull to the left and is easy for her to ride as long as it is solid.
No problems, i will only have to take the two top bolts out and turn the struts away for when i want to ride it as a leaner .Or take the two lower bolts on the rose joints out and undo one plug for the wires to make it solo again ,Win Win Win.
The dog don't care either way . He gave it a Hi five .
G`Day My leaner 1981 R100RS I built mine with front pivot 82mm higher than rear one.It turns the sidecar in both ways easy at all speeds.It is geared for 155kph,drives as good as a solo after getting used to it.I have a separate disc brake for sidecar,It makes down hill left handers a breeze(sidecar on left) even under full brakes.

The dish licker rocks
Nice! Got any pictures of your setup?
That mention of the 82 mm for the offset is some key information. I've seen other leaning side cars on the Web and have been guessing that figure myself. I was figuring 100 mm would be a good starting point.
