Well im here. Any you cats live around springfield mo?
Heres my scoot. Thor and Ludwig Von Sidecar.
She got a 78 gs550 been streched about 10 inches in the rear raked in the front and now has a 21 and a springer up front. Got a flamethrower with a rain flap on top a cherrybomb.(bad idea) and a 7 gallon aux fuel tank that slips in the sidecar with its own fuel pump in the faux oil tank on the scoot.This bike is for trade/sale if anyones interested. Looking for a 31ish ford tudor sedan.

I moved back to St. Louis from Springfield about a year ago now. Lived there for a few years. You may have seen my buddy Andrew's Ironhead Sporty runnin around down there, he works at Rose Metal. Nice scoot btw, but we could use more pics of just the scoot.

In fact that metal on the sidecar may have come from him.

I Welded some grade 8 nuts to 4 points on the frame where there was a frame junction. Then set up a jig,built the sidecar, and made the brackets connect to those points. Rear 3 are triangulated and the front is for leg weight. Ive got a few thousand miles on the bike over the years and prolly 500-700 with ludwig von sidecar attached. The only resemblance in riding with or without is it goes foward when you accelerate. Gotta have at least 40lbs ballast in the cart or a right turn is instant death.
Left turn is like a 3 wheeler. NO leaning. I can float the cart a foot and a half in the air for miles with or without an occupant.

Cool cool, next time you talk to Andrew tell him to give Mike the pinstriper a call. I need to talk to him about the bars he was supposed to bend up for me and I lost his number. Btw, who striped your headlight?
