Well done Reel Classic

Post  keith livingstone on Thu Jan 21, 2016 11:35 pm

Thanks 'Scooter 2' for posting this article from Real Classic  and to Real Classic for covering the Model 95.
Probably against better advice last summer I picked up this project which had been lying 'unloved' you know how it is. As it now transpires it had been used for trading number plates. It had a Hpnda H100 engine shoehorned in and even had a Honda 90 rear wheel.   I spent the autumn searching for bits. With all the dismal weather Christmas kept a few late surprises.  Over the holidays I manged to track down a rear wheel and an engine.  I'm going to read the articles eagerly  just the encoutagment I need to get on with my project.  
Many thanks
Keith

Glad you enjoyed the article.

What type of bike do you have attached to that sidecar in your avatar picture? My sidecar outfit is based on a '75 Honda GL1000. I built it up about 6 years ago and its an absolute blast to ride.

A bit on the side

Post  keith livingstone on Wed Feb 03, 2016 10:50 pm

Hello Scootxc2
I decided for the big 50 it would be good to try something different... a new challenge and had come across a few articles about chairs. Then out of the blue I saw this Squire advertised locally. My bike wouldn't be the obvious sidecar tug, a 74 oil in the frame 650 Bonny and it's a 70's chair ! I was lucky to speak to a guy in Watsonian Squire who gave advice and copied some setup details. I made a few clamps and had all set up and finally a square section front tyre and then never looked back. I don't know if I'd say my outfit is a complete blast! It certainly demands a bit of respect. I have it set so I can hok up / unhook in about 20mins and with my son in the chair we get out for a few runs over the summer months. You get great looks when cars pass and see David sitting in the chair reading his magazines! Best wishes. Keith
