So here's some pics of the XR project. Its a CJ chassis with a swing-arm conversion. The body was manufactured in 1/8" alluminium, which might have been a mistake as it seems just too light, without 100lb of ballast it gets real tippy. I did all the manufacturing myself with no specialized tools other than a stick welder. Building a steel subframe for the main body made it easier to bend and rivet. The only wheel I could get to fit without major conversions was from a 1972 dirt bike (DT 175 I think) bought from ebay. Once again making it a little too light on the offside. The sidecar is attached using homemade subframe and some modified threaded bar from a snow plough. The seat is on hinges so the passenger might well be ejected if I hit anything, not a bad thing I guess, but more importantly it makes the best use of the space behind the seat for the weekly groceries. The seat is waterproof, got it out of an old boat. So how does it ride? Dreadful so far. Just feels really tippy. The fun was in building it and I've lost a lot of motivation since the girlfriend said she won't go anywhere near it, let alone ride down the road, ha ha, don't blame her. So whats the next step? Friends say I need to get some super stiff fork springs for starters, not sure I want to put much more cash in it. Any suggestions are welcome, may be open to selling it...Hate to give up though.
