The sidecar has just a little toe-in to keep it steady at high speed.
The front pivot is 8cm higher than the rear pivot, this helps the steering a lot.
The total width of the combination is around 185cm and the wheel base width is 143cm. The sidecar wheel axle is placed 25cm before the rear axle.
I've got loads of pictures but no drawings. I've created this just from a few sketches and from images in my head based on experiences I've had with building the first prototype on my GSX.
To beer or not to beer, that's no question.
