With 50 lbs of ballast in the trunk, I can't lift the sidecar wheel at all by yanking on the bars while standing on the left peg. No extra steering stabilizer has been added beyond the stock adjustable one. I'm still learning so I haven't gone above 45 mph. The screw in studs add another variable to the ice and snow covered roads. With snow and ice on our large parking lots, I would start sliding before the sidecar wheel lifts on circles to the right. This was before I added the screw in studs and I haven't tried it since. I'm having fun!

The sidecar frame was beefed up a bit with a new tubular cross member to fit with the rear DMC mounting hardware and the front solid steel shaft was modified to work with their mounting hardware. None of the Cozy universal mounting parts and pieces were used.

I'm having fun!


NICE !

What am I going to read before bed now?? For the past 3 1/2 weeks this thread has been my bed time story and I have to say a big thankyou to every body who has contributed to it.

Here is a pic of my son and I on a mates Outfit. I never really had an interest in Sidecars but after riding this one I have started building my own!!

Cheers Slade. The bike is an 850 Elderado. It is a great bike as a solo and an awesome bike as a Tug. By the way I love your Youtube Videos!!

I love the Globe Claude. My only complaint about it is a bit low. I live out of town a bit and there a few road surfaces it is not real keen on. On the upside it turns so many heads. Riding it down the road makes you feel like you are in a parade with every body waving.
