    Just so you know in those video's there was no cross road access , no traffic and someone watching for any possible on coming traffic.

    It has been beat hard, tested and test some more every part of the work has held. The test subjected it to far more than it would ever face in normal use. Next is put the body back on and do the same mod to a friends that has the same setup.

    Payton has not ridden the black one for some time. I had removed the mounts we built and used them to get a friend going. Of course she has been riding the gold one. So today I put the black one all back together while she was at school and picked her up with it. She was happy to ride in it again.

    Yesterday we converted another rig the same way. Friend that has the same sidecar on a 750 Street. Plan all along was to do his. We used mine as the test bike . Using what we learned from mine we did his. We left a about a 1/4 inch more on the hub when cutting it down on his. That 1/4 made no difference on fit and will make it a bit stronger.

    The goal has always been to improve the rig. Face it Sidecar on a 750 Street is not common. The setup works well but can always get better. Next project is to replace the factory shock with a better one. Make a better swing arm frame bumper and a different front mount system that looks cleaner.

    We did figure out a hub cover. Pictures will come latter just forgot to take one. Using a Dyna front rotor eliminator cover we drilled it out to fit the rotor bolts for a Street simple stuff.

    Then used a rear axle bolt cover. Works great , just need to paint the bolts black now.

    3 years into my second retirement it looks like I will end my riding days the way it started. Parts all over the place trying to make sometime a little different
