Welded 1/2" nut to the front of plate ( this welded looks a little sloppy - because I forgot to wipe oil off, after drilling - dohh).

I will thread 1/2" bolt from engine area and then use 1/2" heim ball jojnt.

Heims will be on the sidecar and I will be able to adjust toe-in and toe-out.


Now on to the rear pivot mount.

Welded on rear pivot mount.
Used some angled steel, drilled 1/2" hole, welded the nut, and violá...

And yes the front pivot mount is higher than rear pivot mount. The front needs to be higher to help with steering the sidecar wheel.

Also I trimmed some more frame stuff off kart.
I Will use those frame parts as safety body rails.

I will make rear arm tomorrow. I just purchased a seat for sidecar, springer seat for the bike, and a torque converter.

just waiting for a 25% off coupon from Harbor freight to purchase a new predator.

Just so all of you know, the sidecar wheel is in the middle of the sidecar. The way it should be evenly distributed.

I have the side car wheel 10 inches in forward of mini bike rear wheel.

I think "frankenstein" - Edgar Winter group would be a cool sound track for a machine build.

Mailman brought a goodie today...
This seat is a little bit larger than my other springer solo seat on my Db.
There should be a good fit for the Baja warrior.

More goodies... picked up Predator Hemi, torque converter, fuel tank, and another racing seat.

Seat mount is done. I cut the old seat bar off, welded on a piece of flat stock, and then welded cleavis pins on flat stock. I will use cotter pins to secure springs.

Will be fabricating fuel tank mounts this week.

Wow! I've always wanted to make a side car for my Baja to let people ride with me.

Will watch you build for sure

Would you mind snapping a picture of the rear axle if you havnt put it together yet?

I have some parts leftover from the bajas I had years ago, frame, forks, wheels... but Im missing alot of the small parts.

as if one chair isn't enough ..
One must add a spine impaler to one's ride near the head region so it can easily grab under the brim of the helmet of course.. (all else means to chicken out)

PS Nick, really???

It will lean back away from rider...
bad idea? I thought it would look cool.

Maybe take the spike off? Leave it just "A" style?

I have a decorative steel ball I can put up there instead.

The Spike looks cool. Live Dangerously!
Besides I don't think with the sidecar you will be doing any Tremendous Wheelies and tipping over.
