More side cars.

More amazing work from Olli Erkkila. This dude built a forkless bicycle a while back and check out his latest work. The sidecar has Steib feel to it

Bike Night

Hey fellas, I know its been a while since Ive posted. Things have been busy so heres an update. I recently got my ol'man's side car running again. Hes owned the bike for close to 35 years. Its sat for the last 8 getting some upgrades and a new motor (big bore 836 kit!) but I decided to finally finish it for him. My sportster is also apart for some maintenance. At anyrate heres some recent photos.

Heres what the hack looked like back in the 70s. CB750 honda with a steib sidecar sporting Volkswagen wheels and tires all the way around, and Harley adjustable trees. It was strictly a sidecar motorcycle.

Here it is 2010. My ol man still has most of the original tins as pictured above. The bike was torn down about 8 years ago and was updated with VW disc brakes. Some more bugs have to be worked out yet but what a trip to be riding in this thing again (thats me in the hack)

Took it on down to the local bike night and what a hit. It certainly got peoples heads scratchin tryin to figure out it was

Left bike night and Benny hopped into the hack and I rode his blue Shovel home.

Benny snagged this from the hack. I'm right behind the hack and Greg on his slabside behind me.

Greg and his barnfind '67 slabside with under 5,000 miles.

Video to come later.
