    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. :lurk

    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.

    Took the sidecar body off to start cutting up the EML suspension for an actuator.

    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.

    Cheers

    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. :lol3 But other than that, everything you're doing just looks perfect. With something like that I could chase Drone down the CDT! Whooheee! :clap
