My thanks to folks who e mailed or texted or pm'd

I made it home

The Big Combo is a beast

It has some issues with wiring and worst of all headshake at below 30mph

I managed to free up and align all the mounts and tighten bearings and stuff like that to try and get it to behave

It's a great old motor and just pulls and pulls but when it starts shaking it's head it's

Oh FFS.

To paraphrase the great Paul Hogan as Crocodile Dundee,

"Call that a sidecar? No, that's a sidecar!"

You can be Crocodile Islandmagee!:aidan

C'mon Roger admit it ...l yo have your eye on that as a top box for your aid
It is huge but oooozzes character. That spot and front indicators thing have to go and so does the wheel (put a nice alloy on it or spoked if you can get one. Who needs a tent...not Jaythro:aidan


Nice one

Unit Leading links, but no steering damper, Which it needs BIGTIME but that may just be due to bad set up

It's got a 15" 2 CV rim on the rear and a 16" spoked on the front and the standard mini 10 inch on the chair

Absolutely Brill! Except for the handlebars wobbling, I had to do 2 u turns due to the GPS having kittens and it spins in it's own length :aidan

That Spot light thingy Stays it saved my life, while riding back around the M25 the headlamp bulb blew (nearly apart judging by the crack around the glass bit and that wee lamp let me see the nearside It may go in a pod or something or it may just stay like it is But it something has to stay out there


It's a cracking big outfit and if it were set up correctly I can see this one being around till blondie leaves home :aidan Or gets her own bike:eek::eek::eek:
