My first leaner that we built a year ago. Now sold and just finished one for the Roadliner.

3 wheeler style brake

I have seen rigs with linked brakes that have a handle to engage the rear/car brake, but the strap works fine for me.

Why not get the style brake lever they use to have on the Honda 110 ATC's, where you pull the lever in and flip a spring loaded bail to keep it in place. When you want to move you just pull in the lever and the spring loaded bail releases the catch on the lever?

I know it's an old post, but you gotta give respect to grandfathers, especially ones so talented!

I need to get to brushing up my welding skills, you're the type of grandfather I want to be, and I'm getting to that age!

Some times I think growing old sucks, then I see something like that, and I'm reminded that the best is yet to come!!

That's one lucky kid!

Just got her restarted yesterday after a couple of years of sitting idle and plan on a trip up to Willow Springs Raceway for the vintage weekend coming up and then a trip into the mountains above Kernville and Lake Isabella.

I'll post some photos if anyone is interested

I'll pack the BBQ and some Rib Eye steaks, maybe a bottle or two of Cabernet.

What front suspension is that, I have a 79 CB750F/SS I'm thinking about putting a sidecar on, I kinda like how that looks. Thanks for any info, now back to our regular programming.
Sorry for the small threadjack guys.
LOVE THIS THREAD BTW.

Classic Photo/Poster/Magazine Cover

Gentlemen,
I have been looking for an image for years now. I was at one of the final AHRMA events in Steamboat Springs, CO, USA in the mid 1990's. Had a great time with a couple of friends. While looking through the vendor displays and collections I found an image of a rather grizzled looking gentleman on an outfit loaded with firewood. I'm not sure of the make (I think possibly Norton). I have searched many different venues for this item and have come up empty. So, while enjoying this forum the lightbulb lit and I realized no one would have more exposure or experience in this matter than the collective awareness here. Can anyone help me out? I would appreciate any leads or help of any kind. Thank you all.

Sweet. The fender is on the wrong side, correct?

Ya, I never noticed but it sure looks bass - akwards in the photo. I haven't seen the car in person yet.
It's a Bingham (English ?) car so someone flopped the fender?
