Thanks Claude for the explainations and update on my rig, cannot wait to see it.
Yes, Thank You Claude. Just finished removing all of the ABS parts and made a couple of brackets to support the ECU and battery since they were originally supported by the ABS control unit.
I'm just gonna be devil's advocate for a second.
If the rear aluminium box is locked on and has a handle to pull it up, why the need to have the rear frame pivoted?
And, having had experience with lights stuck up high like on the sidecar, I hope you are addressing refraction around the edge of the lenses. If not, it wont take you long before it gets your attention.
Keep the info coming.
The lid of the box will need to open for access to the compressor and air tank.
Lights- Yes I am very aware of that. In this application I may need to make a bar to move them out further. Right now everything is tacked in place as I am trying to fit the spare tire in that area as well.
If I lived in town I would bring a bar stool down and everyday just watch what you were doing and how you were doing it.
You are a Craftsman.
You do not have to live in town to stop by and watch. I spent about an hour there today I live in the next town south, but never let that stop me, however, you are a bit further away
Took the sidecar body off to start cutting up the EML suspension for an actuator.
Cutting it up.
The actuator. Thank you Jay for the info.
While your tank is off can I suggest putting a car battery in the spot where the ABS unit and the original battery sit.Makes starting much better.
That is a great idea. Thank you.
Got a little more work done yesterday.
Sidecar frame extended out for a skid plate and the front bumper.
Rear receiver hitch for winch.....
I'm drooling all over these pictures! Gawd, wish I had the $$ for you to build me something similar to that. I'd prefer a chair more comfortable for SWMBO and/or the dog. But other than that, everything you're doing just looks perfect. With something like that I could chase Drone down the CDT! Whooheee!
Chris, you sir, are an animal.
You must have a machine with lots of duty cycle she's going to warm right when you start welding.Nice work.DB
Actuator is finished. 4" travel, 2000 lbs.

The swing arm is made out of one piece of 1.5" .120 tubing.
Does EML Ship to the states or do you have to purchase in europe and ship like you did.
This is exactly what I want to build!
Thanks. I found a used kit with the help of Irish Murph.
