    Two update videos. I'll take pictures tomorrow when the lighting is better. Episode 11 is actually old footage I forgot to use to make an episode, so it's actually 20th in the playlist.

    There are a few more videos on my YouTube page now, but most of what is going on now is short rides for a few blocks and then adjusting the alignment. The kids seem to like it though.

    Last update! I won't be making a video for painting the frame and that's all that's left to do on it.

    Have you used rose joints on the sidecar attachment points? If so I would replace them with bolted steel plates. Rose joints will fail over time due to fatigue.

    This is my all time favorite build thread. Rowan is a star.

    I haven't really done anything with it after that video of the motorcycle rally. I still need to paint the frame, and the top link arms I need to take apart and shorten a little bit to get more adjustability out of them. We moved recently, and I had to take it apart to get the bike and the sidecar to where we live now. It hasn't gone back together since. I I told Rowan that we would go camping and fishing with it, so I'm probably going to have to put some rod holders on it for transporting fishing poles. The windshield got snapped off in shipping to our new house. I think I am going to put some vents in the back end to allow air flow through the inside of the sidecar body.
