New BMW Shock

Posted: March 24, 2013 in Sidecar Rebuild

The old Harley air shock we had broke down after a few test rides, so we put on this nice BMW shock in its place!

Got a seat on the bike now.  Its from the FT500 we rebuilt.  It needs to be covered and painted, but it will do the job nicely.  Also move the tailight to the sidecar since it fit better there.  The bike was also wobbling pretty bad, so we got a steering dampener from an old Volkswagen and that solved the problem!

Grabbed some flush-mounting turnsignals to act as eyes.  They look good!

The graphics started to go on today, and are being hand done by our good friend Mike.  It’s coming out very nice!  Here is where it is at so far:

Now that we have the Suzuki running like a dream (it’s insane how good it runs now), we have decided it would be a great bike to throw an old sidecar that we have had for a long time on it.  We started breaking it down today, and will have to get it sandblasted, repainted, and essentially have all the hardware replaced.  Here are some pics!
