New Csm sidecar model

We will be calling this the Freedom Bullet. Pictured below is the prototype built for Chris
McCarthy mounted to his very nice 2010 Triumph.It has an optional glove box , skirted steel fender
and a large exterior opening trunk with a rear rack. There is also a manual tilt adjuster added to this one.
Body is hand made from 1/8" aluminum and powdercoated black. .

Beautiful!

Claude, you and the crew have out-done yourselves with this one! What a beautiful design exercise, but with your creativity and attention to detail, not surprising to me. What could possibly be next?

I think you've pretty much allowed for maximum adjustability right there!

Good looking rig! Well done!

Stunning! I've always liked that look for a classic style bike.

Thanks for the compliment. The mounts are fairly typical of what we normally do. Yes, the mounting system is quite adjustable.

Roger. This one is about 52" center of bike tire to center of sidecar tire. It can be set wider or narrower.

Some have asked about what type of Chasiis and suspension is on the Freedom Bullet. The Chassis is what we call the 'Low Chassis' . It is made with TIG welded 1 1/2" x .120 wall DOM tubing similar to all of our frames. The suspension on the low Chassis is pictured below. The basic design of the tilt adjustor is time proven and works quite well. We have utilized this method on other cruiser type combinations with very good results. In case anyone is wondering ,yes,It is possible to utilze an electircal controled tilt adjustor as well.
