    Fair call.

    The radius bends on it are very neat so someone put some effort into it.

    My judgement call was made from knowing how I ride all of mine and where ... did I mention the harley does brilliant power drifts on the bitumen in the first three gears :lol3 ... little light drag on the chair brake and snap the throttle open.

    A pic' without any spec's on material just makes it a bit harder to judge. I've looked at DJP frames and often wondered how they survived the rigors of our highway systems. Did see one in Lismore on an R75 that had the strut mounts held on with exhaust clamps , I was a good boy and kept my trap shut ... so I 'spose it pays to never write anything off.




    Well that does rule out a lot of options.

    My biased pick out of that list so far ;

    K100 , if it is mid ' 85 and later. Will do everything you ask from high speed to dirt. Easy to add a car rear tyre if it doesn't already have one.

    GT750 kwaka. Same as above except it'll take more work to get a car tyre in there and just less power to play with.

    Both are fuel and ride propositions with low maintenance. TouringDave will vote for the GT understandably :lol3. Ask Dave as he has had ( and still has one , I think ) hooked to a chair.

    So to build a new chassis, what material would you recommend? I could salvage the suspension, guard and uprights from it I think. I may be able to find someone to do the welding for me. Even if I did the cutting myself.

    ... you've really gotta want one to build one and enjoy the process. The little things will nickle and dime you :deal

    No idea on the frame. If it helps, we make a sub frame for the bike in left side fitment and we offer "leading" legs to lower the steering effort with the sidecar

    Cheers Jay, that's good to know. I'm going to give this frame away, if anyone would like the bits. I think I'll buy a chair complete sometime

    To answer your original question. The frame is home made with a trailer axle. Cut the mounts of and make news ones and run it.

    We offer a full left side mounting kit and our M72DX sidecar for left side fitment for your bike.
    We are adding left side mounts all the time to the list of mounts we can make.
