Simple enough suspension to rig up - you can use modifies bike parts for most of it. Then you can use a larger wheel and set the spindle/axle point higher.

big advantage with a swing arm style set up is that you can run your larger wheel and set the ride height as you want it. It keeps the width of the vehicle nice and tight but doesn't intrude you your sidecar space.

Make and make do

So I figured I would post this here rather than the build off thread.
I took of the front wheel to see how it would fit up as the sidecar wheel.
I have run into a snag, while the size is perfect the axle size is only 15 mm.
So for now I think I will be running a trailer setup until I can afford to get a bike wheel bored to fit larger bearings.
Unless someone's got a better idea.
Sucks but it is what it is.
I will be ordering the steel with my next paycheck for the frame. Hopefully things will start moving along.

My dad found a toy in the back of his basement. I bought this thing prolly a decade ago when i was going to build myslef a custom chopper outta an old rusty moped. I was cutting conduit with it back then. needless to say nothing ever happened with that "chopper"
anyway it works a bit quicker than a hack saw

Well, now I'm interested.

It's not so bad as long as you can keep the fear from your mind.

Sorry for the small pictures I don't feel like doing this from a pc maybe later I will photo bucket these
Sorry for the lack of work. It's been a cluster at work and I had lost some of the vision for this. I still have no idea what I'm going to do for the tank. And I've been getting frustrated lately.

I managed to get to some of the frame bits so far.

Good progress, I like the direction you are going.
Did you figure out the wheel/axle. I have a gs1000 rear disc brake wheel that uses a 20mm axle. If you need it, its yours.

Thanks mista I think in going to go with a trailer tyre I put the stock front wheel against the tub at operating height and the tyre comes up 2-3 inches over the side of the tub I can see a new rider having their arms over the side and getting it bashed into their arm. Also I can get a narrower trailer tyre which will help keep the whole thing narrower overall.

I can also get spares at just about any Walmart and menards ect so I won't have to rely on custom machined parts when I'm on long trips.

I may change my mind in the future I figure I can get rolling this way and mod later

Thanks for the offer though ill send rep when I get home tonight
