The Concours14 Sidecar Project is mostly done and will be available exclusively through Hannigan Motorsports. It is much the same as the ZX14 conversion that you see on Hannigan's website. The first run are all spoken for so more won't be available until some time late this fall.

Thought people might like to see the casting molds we made for the rear wheel hub. They are at the foundry now and expect to have the prototype casting back next week. I'll post pictures of the casting when it's done.

Anyone interested in seeing these kind of pictures?
Bill

Amazingly, I just dropped off the patterns yesterday morning and got a call from the foundry this morning that they had the prototype cast. Check it out. Once it's heat treated and machined, I'll post pictures of the finished part.

does anyone find this interesting???

Sure GP02W sounds good to me. Should make some wood parts for yours too and we could rename yours ZX14GP01WB!

GP01 in full trim, you mean like with a third wheel on it Question Question

What a brilliant job Zen, be proud of what you've done.

Any chance you'll do some wide wheels for mine, they're really tastey.

50 Years Shocked Shocked Shocked
Zen,
I don't think so, young man,
If you want to come to England and get in Laughing Laughing

I see a plan,

How's about you get your butt in the forge and start making me some wheels and bring them over with you, that way you get some extra spending money while your here. Cool
Besides it'll save on UPS fees.
I'd be proud to have your 3 wheels on my sidecar unit.

So if I give you some measurements and you give me a price.

That remind me of a time.... The real question is, would you want some 112 year old kid making wheels for your ride! Laughing
