    Phelonius's Suzuki Van Van Sidecar

    (Note: I am posting these pictures as a favor for Phelonius, all credit for this work belongs to him. TW-Brian)

    Okay, here are the photos of what I have already done.The hack frame is a bare frame from Enumclaw Washington.
    It was supposed to fit a 250cc Big Ruckas but I sold that bike a couple years ago.
    I sawed apart the linkages and fittings and shaped them to fit the Suzuki.
    They no fit the hack a little closer to the bike than before, about 5 inches closer.
    When it is all done and toe in and lean out is adjusted properly, I will saw off the extra appendages.

    It is going to be a cargo hauler for groceries, hardware, dead bodies, etc.

    It will have a loop at the rear that will carry my wheelchair.
    This is causing some problems because the wheelchair is wider than the sidecar frame.

    Because of my disabilities, (paralyzed legs) the work is going very slowly.
    More as I get more done.

    I am also having a 50 foot ramp installed from my front door to my driveway. And a canopy built over the drive so I won't have to shovel snow off my windshield in winter. I will probably have to hire some strong young types to shovel snow off of my ramp.

    My thanks to Brian for his help. Hell, I can even get confused trying to manage my own photo record.
    Things are going slow for lack of the kind of tools I need. Hell a few years ago I had a full size lathe and milling machine and professional welding equipment.
    Now I have a little stick welder the size of a lunchbox, a drill press I just bought, a toy milling machine, and a toy bench top lathe with a 16 inch bed.
    I was once a proffessional welder with. some machine shop experience. Now I am a tinkerer. But I will finish this machine one piece at a time.
    I started when I found on the internet, a bottom guard for the Van Van. I bought one and it became the start of a subframe. I welded things to it until I had a place to mount the two large heim joints. It has been piece by piece since. I see a need for a piece and make one and put it on. It ain't purty but it should work.

    I have known about the flexies since the sixties. The reason I don't want one is the same as the reason they are no longer popular.
    They are true death machines.

    The Hotchkiss machine gun really added to the “Death Machine” image. Flxi07.jpg

    I too am looking forward to seeing the finished sidecar, I didn't think the vanvan would have enough power to use with a sidecar.
    But what do I know, I've never piloted a sidecar rig.
