With the basic sidecar frame built, I was at the point now where It needed to be mounted to the bike. I couldn't put in any more frame work, until the sidecar mounts were fitted, then the floor frame etc could be mounted in the most suitable places for load bearing.
I had already contacted a local bloke to make the leading links as I felt that with my limited knowlege it was worth it to get someone else to do it.
I'd also asked Phyllis to make the bike subframe and sidecar mounts. We'd been talking about it for a while, and he had expressed some enthusiasm for doing something "different".

From here on, you'll notice what look like gussets in a lot of the corners and groups of three holes everywhere. They are not gussets as such, though no doubt they will add some strength. They are in fact, holding plates for captive nuts. All the body panels will be made of 1.8mm and 3mm aluminium sheet, held on with small screws.


Sorry about the blurred photo. It isn't the best camera in the world
The small nut plates are held to the 'gusset' with pop rivets. The actual 'nut' part of the device is movable on the retaining plate.

Hack the 950 mate. Ask NevGriff. If he had the chance to do it, I think he'd jump at it. There's some spectacular pics around of a few that have been done

Thanks mate

Leave it to 3legs. I think poor old Dave is getting a bit frustrated. I was the same. It's a bugger when you're waiting on someone else.

I hope you've kept all the jigs and measurements!

Although I'm wondering is it possible to order a Ural sidecar without the tug? (see I've been doing my research and I'm starting to learn the jargon!)

It looks great Neil!

Not sure about getting just the Ural body. That's what Nev did, but I don't think they come up very often. Keep your eye on fleabay or contact the bloke at Ural Aust.

What do you need to know Andrew?
They are actually a fitting used in the aircraft industry and I obtained quite a few during my employment at an aircraft establishment many years ago
I'm not sure where to get them from now but if you want to I'll see if I can find out.
