    .Here is one of my projects, an old Tracy body that my brother had in the mid 70's. I found it about 5-6 years ago, haven't done anything with it as you can tell. Maybe I'll sell it, I dunno, :dunno but I know it has potential.

    It is all fiberglass except for the bung for the fuel cap and taps for the petcocks which are steel.

    I am looking to make my own set of headers, but I need the dimensions which enter the cylinder head. I like to avoid pulling my own bike apart at the moment, so if someone has something they can measure for me, that would be awesome!

    I guess it could work, but those "ears" would need to go :)

    This is also nice!

    It matches the tanks boxyness and is of a good lenght.

    The main issue is getting the tunnel a bit wider though, or relocating the coil, again.

    Like the bike, I can see why you're putting a sidecar on, can't keep the front wheel on the deck, good bush outfit should do the trick! :lol3

    Hi Ed, hell ya I'll ride off road with it :clap I ride my xs650 all year here in New England and beat the living crap out of it off road too :lol3 My wife loves going off road and the sidecars are a means to take her with me. I'll be hanging the chair on the right side, this way if I have to pass someone on the street I won't have to depend on her screems to let me know if there is a car comming :rofl And Beza, I'll be sure to post the sidecar wheelies for ya :evil [​IMG]
