While delivering some parts for my new hack project to Jay at Dauntless Motors (www.dauntlessmotors.com) yesterday, I spied this very capable looking trail rig based on a Yamaha TW200, mated to a chassis/"tub" of Jay's design: Straight-on view. Profile showing the "tub". Rear view. The Hella lamp assemblies are a nice touch! Close-up of the leading link front-end, a full-up custom design by Jay and his crew. As many much more knowledgeable than I have noted, designing a full-on/straight-up hack is the right way to go. Thinking that you'll want to ride the tub "naked" at times only makes for a foul-handling sidecar. A leading link front-end is, as Martha S. noted before her incarceration, ". . . a very good thing". A close-up of the tub's rear wheel. On my BMW rigs, I've used the tug's rear wheel on the tub. On this design, the tub's front wheel has been used instead. Very clever, and this makes for a nice disc brake set-up as well. There's an infinity of design possibilities when you embark on the unnatural mating of a prone-to-falling-over motorbike to a vehicle with only one wheel, and that one on the side. This rig looks like The Little Engine that Could. I think it could go most anywhere except the superslab. Apparently, the owner lives in a very remote part of WA State, and will use it around his property. Jay said it's geared for a top speed of 42MPH. He said he hit 3rd gear just getting out of the parking lot for a test ride. Looks like a ton of fun!
