Once Phyllis had finished his work on the sidecar frame, it came back to my place and I started the body fabrication.


All the tags had to be put in to fasten the body panels.




And I decided to fit some sort of 'nudge' bar. Actually, it's probably there more for looks and somewhere to hang a couple of driving lights. It would be struggling to nudge a small dog.








Main floor panel going in.










As you'll see later, many of these panels would change as holes were needed to route wiring , hoses etc.






There a bit of a story involved here The panel with the holes is where the fridge will sit, and underneath it are six blocks of high density foam to act as a shock absorber. I went to the local Engel dealer as they actually do make a shock platform for their fridges. Turned out to be two pieces of 25mm chipboard with 4 springs in between - at over $200.







Roughly where everything will sit.






After a bit of a search ( I love the internet ) I found a mudguard that I liked. But getting it to sit in a position where it looked right took as long as finding it













Finally got it to where it looked ok and made brackets to hold it.

Then Phill arrived with the finished links so we finally joined the bike to the frame, almost permanently, but the dummy heim joints will be replaced by the real thing later, and the whole thing will be strpped down for paint.








Everything is triangulated, and you can now see the purpose of all the lugs etc and the subframe. So this was what Phil meant by "different" and I love it. It really is a brilliant job, and I couldn't be more pleased. Thanks Phil.

I saw this beastie in the flesh yesterday and it is a work of art.

Smiley face stickers to Clancy and Phyllis. Outstanding work.

If you going to use the original fairing bracket you WILL need to brace it. Mine broke on the trip to Lorella springs. You need to strengthen it around where it bolts to the head stem. It's not a matter of if it will break but when will it break.
While you have the fairing off do it now because it's a pain in the arse to tie fencing wire around when you are on the side of the road.

If you don't fix it now I WILL stand on the side of the road with you but laughing my head off saying "I told you so" whilst drinking YOUR beer
