I'm curious to see how this turns out, as I love to see experimental and creative suspension concepts turn to reality, and also wondering what sort of Norge governmental inspection it'll have to be put through to be considered 'roadworthy'.

Cheers

Govermental inspection yes... we do not plan to ask them to do one... the bike already has a license plate...  Rolling Eyes 
Until last year all rebuilding was banned totally in the legal way... But as the frame we are using is a veteran this year, we can get it registered as a vetran in the condition it is when reviewed for getting veteran papers. Veteran is when the bike is over 30 years old in Norway, it's much cheaper to own and use! 
This is our third suspension build like this one, The designs are getting more and more radical!  Very Happy 
Got one more in our heads, Bimota lookalike, one control arm on each side of a car hub of a Smart car.

The front and rear wheels on this one too is going too be from a Smart car, if we just could get ahold of some...

It's made at the crooked angle to accomodate the travel of the wheel due to the constant changing angle on the hub. The rods are going to be chaged to stainless BMW E46 318IS stabilisator rods when we get some in the mail in near future!

Hope there is a change of weather in your region, so that you can get out of the shed every once and a while ?  Very Happy 

Cheers...

My dad isn't that many days in the shed all things considered, I'm only home on the weekends, but it's mostly evenings that is spent in the garage!

Here's a video from now on sunday:


Ha ! A speedy ride in an astonishing scenery; still lots of snow I see ?!
Thank's; keep up the good work ! (Great to see the 'boat' growing from nothing to its present state. Good craftmanship, that's for sure !)

We've started fiddeling with the K again! My dad has made a new swingarm, the last one was too short to get the suspension geometry right. There was no room to move the lower spring mount around to get more suspension travel. 

The old swingarm and pipes for the new one.

New and old swingarm, the new one looks more lean and is better made to accommodate better suspension

That's good. I've enjoyed reading this thread - there's some really interesting engineering going on there.

Impressive build and makes a very interesting read. Thanks for the posts.
In the end what made you decide how and where to mount the shock on the sidecar? It looks to be pretty much vertical?
Sean.
