Correct, but I didn't want to get too technical.
Hi, new guy here. I have been lurking, and gathering intel on sidecars for a while. Got my rig done, so just wanted to say thanks for the information. My leading-leg fork design was based largely on photos I found here.
Took the C10 rig to a toy run here in Charlotte this weekend. had another HD rig there too. there were well over 1200 bikes involved. good day!

Ok, sorry this took me so long to get back to. Here is another one of Bob seniors better side. hehehe
A little history. I think this pic was taken about 1966 or so. Like I said before we were all from Wisconsin back then. We lived in Fond du Lac. Back then there were two motorcycle clubs in town. I said clubs, not gangs. One was called the Top Hats which Bob and Rosie belonged to. And the other one was The Fondy motor cycle club which I belonged to. I think I was about 20 years younger then Bob and we never knew each other, The Top Hats were Harley and Indian riders and the Fondy motorcycle club rode Triumph and BSA and so forth. Irv Tursky was the Triumph dealer in town and his brother was the Harley dealer, there was considerable conflict between the Two Although I didn't know of this. I think the Harley and Indian were gone before I really started riding in 1962.
The Top Hats is still in existence but I don't think very active. It is still headed up by a guy called "Wolfman" I don't think the Fondy motorcycle club is still around. Cheryl also sent me more pics of Bob senior when he was older and also of Bob and jim sitting on some old Harleys. So there ya have it.
1930 Majestic with a Bernadet sidecar. The French have style.
Very interesting steering set up. Front wheel turns but no leaning. Are those vertical shock absorbers with an exposed spring rebound under the axle?
The upper (horizontal) strut between sidecar and bike is different, does the sidecar steer with the turning of the front wheel???? Looks like a pivot pin on the front lower connection.
Anyone know which museum this rig is in?
Be still my beating heart!

Sidecar presence at a recent So. Cal. camping gathering.
That's a nice crop of rigs @bmwhacker , do you have any info on the red conversion rig? It looks like a nice setup.
