My other thread got me thinking about just... working with what I have. So what I have is a few SOHC CB750 engines, a GL1000 front end, a good '74 frame, all the bits and bobs and parts and whatnots to put together a full bike... and then it'd be a matter of finding a sidecar for a decent price. Now, if I were to do this, I could purchase/get a set of raked trees made, to bring my trail down to decent spec. This would get me into a rig for about as cheap as possible... I've got professional welders in the family, so the work would be done correctly. Please, point out the flaws in my thinking, set me straight. edit: another thought... I could use raked trees as stated, OR, (creating a few registration issues, but nothing insurmountable)... have a frame made with proper steering head angle. My thoughts being, if a raked tree would work just as well, it would save me work, and mean the bike would be usable without a sidecar, if I ever wanted to get back to "normal" with it, with a couple hour's work.
