On another thread I asked about speccing up new shocks for my leading links. Dai suggested I talk to Adge (Adrian Robberts) at Hedingham Sidecars in Dorset.

Adge was very helpful and knowlegable on all things sidecar and mentioned that in addition to Hedingham builds he was also quite busy fixing and putting together other make outfits. So if you need any help setting up etc in the South West, he doesn’t just work on Hedingham kit.

Adge also referred my particular issue to Falcon Shocks who were the original suppliers of shocks to Hedingham in the early days. I spoke at length to Robin at Falcon (also in Dorset) who has given me a list of metrics he requires in order to spec up new shocks. The kit looks good quality (Falcon are serious in the competion world) so I’ll update as we progress.

Two old school suppliers of things sidecar, hope someone finds the info helpful.

Bloody hell - I haven't spoken to Robin in years! If you mentioned me I'm willing to bet he probably said something insulting Very Happy I persuaded Robin to fit a modified pair of trials shocks to my Moto Guzzi V1000G5 about thirty years ago and that started his move into the road world. Adge's Moto Guzzi 850-T3 California was the next road bike he did. Adge still has the Cali; we've sort-of agreed that I should restore it because it's in a bit of sorry state after all these years.
