Default Re: Silverbear's sidecar

Silver Bear, PM me your home address and I'll make up a mounting plate like the one I am using on my bike. It will mount on your seat stay and chain stay and the nut on your axle. You will just have to drill the holes to fit your bike.
I have to cut out the mounting pads for mine and I'll cut yours at the same time. I plan on using U bolts to hold it on and they should be easy to get.

I'm thinking if you bought longer rods to replace the axle and the rod on the tow handle so they stuck out far enough to clear the peddals and bent the ends in an L, they would fit in to right sized pillow blocks mounted on the plate and with a washer and a pin to hold them in place you should be good to go.

I did read today that it was better to have a third arm to hold the sidecar rigid to the bike but until I've tried it I'm going to see if I like it as it pivots up and down and the bike leans.

Let me know if you have any questions.
