    When I saw the orange sidecar paint, I was wondering what KTM you were attaching it to. Instead an orange framed BMW. Great build - it is going to look awesome. I can't wait to see it finished :ricky

    In the immortal words of Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, "It's always best that you start at the beginning," and you are clearly starting all the way at the beginning. My hat is off to you, sir! :getiton

    As you say I like to start at the beginning so a little info on the rebuild
    I have been running this outfit for a few years now and have found some short comings while living with it on the road, so the idea was to try and overcome them while refurbishing the full outfit.
    This is what the outfit looked like in its first incarnation the chair is a Heddingham eth floor frame fitting brackets, nose cone, wheel arch and torsion bar suspension.

    I decided to do some changes to my hack before an upcoming RTW trip, as I have used this part of the forum for ideas and inspiration I thought that I would share some of the rebuild and modifications with you all. All the design and fabrication work has been done by me. With the exception of the welding as I have a mate that teaches welding so his welding is much better than mine.

    After talking with a friend with a similar set up on an r100gs I decided to strengthen the frame of the bike. This proved not be as straight forward as it sounds, if I make the frame to stiff it could cause it to break instead of flex.
    Every part of the bike and chair has been fully dismantled, and refurbished.
