    Chicky, are you talking about Beetle's swinger ?

    Last I heard, small chair = small (ish) swinger. Any guesses ? :lol3

    Yeah, very small swinger was what I heard, but that could have changed.

    Yes Ron Burton has offered, other smaller one unable to attend. Ron maybe not so small but the fitness is there.
    As for name - my grandson calls it WINNER.

    Well, just done our entry for full event on our sidecar. Hopefully we can finally get the finish on the damn thing.
    Have ordered motor rebuild, tyres all round, mousses all round, shock rebuilds and a better comfy seat. Hopefully that's all it needs after Robby 2 day next weekend.

    So is that a BETTER COMFY SEAT for rider or passenger. LOL. I made up a seat for passenger as per rules. Noticed I had let my club membership laps, just love paper work.

    I could be wrong but I think the early model Enfields had that bottom slant “wheel out front” as a standard fork.

    But the extra shock is interesting. I assume there will be one on the other side as well.

    Seat for passenger...... You got to be kidding, she can stand there for the 24hrs She goes to the gym more than I have beer during the week so I don't see her needing the seat!!!

    I used an extra shock on my old Leigh Hollomby copy rock hopper. TT600.
    The shock was mounted from the swing arm to the frame & gusseted but the 24 destroyed it, I ran it in 10 road trials without a problem.
    If you look hard you'll see a complete section of frame missing. The photo was taken on the 3rd lap at Sutherlands in 1994.
    Sorry about the quality of the pic.

    i remember that yellow frame TT. You gotta watch the lower linkage bolt on those that attaches it to the frame. They are hollow as they have grease cavity and can snap (replace with solid one with a grease groove and re- grease it regularly) and the lower linkage mount can tear off the frame too. Heart breaking stuff when it happens in the 24hr.

    No, I don't see me fitting one to the other side.
    It is not a very strong shocker. All I wanted to do was stop the standard front forks from sagging and diving under brakes. My testing has shown it works a treat. I see no difference than the front ends of some bikes that have the spring in one side and the oil in the other. As with my perforated brackets that came into criticism, I figure the 2 laps of the 24 will sort my build out.

    Don't forget entries close end of this week I believe.

    As for our prep, we now have a lot more work to do after robertstown event where the chair wheel decided to part company with the bike. Bit of McGuyver skills and we got the bike back to main but too much damage was done.
