    David's rigs are top notch quality builds, no cutting corner for him. You will not be disappointed in the ride or the rig at a price less than half of what it cost him to build it.

    Quality and perfection carry high costs, you are getting a real deal on this one.

    This is not the type or quality of sidecar set up you will see for sale every day, or even every year for that matter.

    I have to admit I never heard of EML. I looked it up on the web and found the sidecars. I couldn’t find the swing arm you mention. My guess is the EML swing arm & front end to incorporate a rear car tire?

    Swing arm is a steel replacement for the BMW casting. Front suspension is modified and widened to accommodate car tire.

    Complete front suspension as delivered.

    David, if I may ask, could you explain the purpose of the different setting on the bracket where we can see the 3 bolts. Thanks

    BTW, I have recently visited the EML factory in the NL, huge plant, very impressive facility with many skills workers, and passioned leaders who know their stuff. The sidecar departement is no more their main activity, because the 3 wheels demand is not as important as a couple decade ago. But the number of EML rig still on the road, all over the world, is a tribute of their high quality product.

    Two bolts hold the brackets, the third is for the lower shock mount.

    Do you have the achilles tire as a pusher on this rig. If so how do you like it?

    David, thank you for building such a fine outfit, one that I simply couldn't pass up! I read the build thread before offering to buy, we're much alike, and I'm very much looking forward to settling funds, arranging for shipment, and taking delivery!

    Would the OP be interested in building something like that for another member? I'm interested in a complete rig like this one
