Despite the frequent, insignificant negative comments (shame on you DaveBig), the outcome of this wonderful build is really something else. Where there's a diversion from the norm, it's all been more than admirable. As for the sidecar, maybe some manufacturers should look at what can be done to get away from long term, traditional body shapes with just a little thought.
Great job Zip, can't wait to see the final touches.

It'll be easy for a guy with your skills, if you want to borrow the tap for the ball joint mount I'll loan it to you.DB

Ok but you certainly can build a jig to shorten the lever 3/4" and add a piece to the lower ball joint mount, if necessary buy a used lever from beemerboneyard or ebay. We cut 3/4"out of the lever and tack it together and reinforce and make it look nice.It ain't rocket science.DB

The lower shock mount stays where it is, you take 3/4" out of front, to move the hole back, cut the ball joint mount out of the alum plate and add 3/4" of it you just want to add I can loan you the tap.DB

If you doubt it works well call Claude and ask him he likes the way mine steers.DB

I see you moved the ball joint to reduce trail, if you shortened the A frame an equal amount your fork would be at the correct angle and your front end wouldn't be sagging as much.DB
