    Looks like a simple set up , did you just set all the wheel settings square or did you have a few angle on the wheel .
    Is the frame on the bike pivots set on different positions to make the side care turn .
    Have you got any details or drawings with measurements ???:ear

    The sidecar has just a little toe-in to keep it steady at high speed.
    The front pivot is 8cm higher than the rear pivot, this helps the steering a lot.
    The total width of the combination is around 185cm and the wheel base width is 143cm. The sidecar wheel axle is placed 25cm before the rear axle.
    I've got loads of pictures but no drawings. I've created this just from a few sketches and from images in my head based on experiences I've had with building the first prototype on my GSX.

    Not my thing.
    And it's nice to be able to disagree.

    Does that mean that whilst i looks good on one of those TV shows, it isn't necessarily functional? ie, it may run but no one would want to ride it more than the width of the TV studio.

    and says she's taking the hack to town for grocery's. I said OK as I thought "yeah right". Hell, I've used worse excuses to go for a ride, I think she sensed some doubt in my chuckle so I got these pics on my phone a few hours later. Its about a 55-60 mile round trip so taking the hack over the family truckster saves about half the gas or almost enough to buy a 6 of Guinness!

    Put some Modtop mufflers on my Yamal and took a ride in the rain and got them dirty. They really sound sweet.
