    This is my. 1985 Honda CB650SC "Night-HACK" it was wife's 1st bike, after returning from our Nova Scotia trip she decided to upgrade to a Versys and instead of selling the honda we hacked it! The body was a snowmobile trailer for pulling your kids. I cut the skis off, flipped one of the leafs over and bolted it to the rear axle of an 83 VW pickup. Used threaded aluminum links with hemispherical rod ends to connect the dots. I am quite pleased with the ride she tracks perfectly straight and corners are a hoot! Next thing is to mod the steering to reduce effort enough for my wife (who still holds the title) to be able to ride it. Big thanks to the contributors of this forum without whom I wouldn't have had a clue how to set up the geometry.

    My 85' Honda " Night-HACK" the tub is a Polaris snowmobile trailer with the skis cut off and the axle is a modified rear axle from an 83 Vw pickup. Thanks to the contributors of this forum for making it possible to figure out a design formula! She tracks straight as an arrow but next up is steering modifications so that my wife can ride it too.

    I did that ride years ago. Are they still doing sections of single track/fire cuts? If so, were you able to reroute around without too much trouble?

    I think it was that bike that appeared on one of the those "traffic cop" type programmes over here. The copper couldn't believe his eyes when he stopped Mouse.

    Rode her out to the ranch to check on the hog traps. No bacon yet but it is coming.
