Actually everything motorbike related is on hold since I am finishing up some jobs here in Maryland where I've been working as a handyman/caretaker for the winter months. The last couple of days I've been dismantling some roof trusses to haul back to Minnesota with me to make into a motorbicycle shop with an attached bike 'garage', all to be skinned with billboard tarp. Yes, it sounds bonkers, no doubt, like making a gas tank out of a juice can or a sidecar out of a kiddie trailer. I'm at the point of staring at all of the boards, bikes, boxes of bike stuff, wheels, sidecar, tools and personal belongings, wondering how in the heck it is all going to fit in/on the back of the truck. I'll leave in a few days, drive 1200-1300 miles, get out of the truck.... breathe in the forest, take a baptismal swim in the lake and thank the Creator I'm still alive. When the dust settles I'll post results of the sidecar trial run.
Your project sounds great which I hope is being documented with photos as you go and which will become a thread we can all follow... hint, hint. Check in with you later.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
