:eek1 Do you have any front suspension travel? I see the fork brace is compressing the gaiters some but wow.
Also, is that an Ural tub on a Velorex frame?
"The first of many sidecar outings with mentally challenged people"
That sounds like a great time, but who was riding passenger in the sidecars? :huh
It's not pretty, brought very cheap and as a doer upper
Progress so far....
Remove a bins worth of tat!, removed upsidedown trailer suspension with nearly siezed hub bearing ( wondered why it pulled to the left so hard)
Took tub off for filling of holes!
New suspension arm, wheel and shock fitted, waiting on castle nut and s clips for brake shoes, Oh I've cleaned engine and etch primed it ready for spraying
Scruffy little monkey but quite happy at 80mph

Don't you just love the fred yates "caravan" ?
I know I do. :Y
Sounds if you are pulling my leg.
In the other case: these events are known as "Jumbo run" after the original event in England.
We gather together as sidecar drivers and take a passenger on board from a local institution. These can be children with down syndrome, but also young adults who suffered brain injury.
This Beatrixrun and the Zeelandia run (i'll post pictures) of next weekend acquire a year of organization from local volunteers. we sidecarrists just respond to the invitation and spend a day and some gallons of gasoline.
The joy is a great day driving, having lunch together and having fun with the fellow sidecarrists and the children.
The run next weekend is to far from my home so i'll be camping, also organized by those volunteers.
If you are pulling my leg, yes i'm also mentally challenged
Jumbo GB......A fun wk-end and very rewarding. Must get over to the Dutch one sometime.
Brand new saw it today at St. Croix HD in Wisconsin
Posted pictures using SmugShots. Nice!
Add 1 part /7 frame. a R90 engine bored to 1000cc, R65 swingarm, a 450 watt alternator, and most of a 72 R75/5, then throw on a 1970's Globe sidecar and this is what you come out with.........
Love it! There's one of those Beemers with the "toaster" tank near me that a great older gentleman owns... He "thinks" he "may" sell it "someday".... Meanwhile, patience....
Very nice !!!
Did another run this weekend, The Zeelandiarun. Very well organized, from camping, coffee, breakfast until the lunch, ice cream stop and dinner.
