made the mistake of sitting on a Rewaco

No mistake, more Eureka moment !

Yeah raked yokes would lighten up the steering on the harley for sure,
anything up to seven degrees is going to reduce the effort in turning the bars.
I am guessing the Dyna ain't a twin disc variant ?
(otherwise swapping the legs and knocking up some leading axle brackets would have been an option).

Sun is out,
I have got to go for a little ride out  trike.gif

I am trying to use every opportunity,
I will be SORNing the Subaru come end of the month,
so trying to get as much use out of it till then.

Had to get back on to doing some more to the Sunbeam motorcycle build
(Customer is asking about progress,
and there has been none)
The rear mudguard is hinged to allow the wheel to be extracted,
Lamb engineering repaired the mudguards and welded in a new hinge,
except it's real obvious that it's a four inch domestic door hinge,
and modern rather than an eighty year old motorcycle part.
So I looked on Youtube and sure enough there is a video of how to form a hinge,
using a press, which I don't have admittedly,
but I have a scrap pile and a hammer,
and an angle grinder,
so yeah made suitable forming tools from scrap with angle grinder,
and made a hinge,
which looks like the proper thing,
can't believe it worked out so well first time,
but hey I did watch a video and do a bit of maths.
very satisfying making some thing that works first time for sure
(It don't happen often!)

yes I have to get creative too, been asked to play Santa at the Police children's party. Talked it over with Yvonne and the plan is to turn Austinix into a sleigh for the day with her good self driving me in dressed as an elf. Can only be fun. Depending on time (I have exams coming up) I am considering removing the shell and making a plywood sleigh body.

making a plywood sleigh body.

Sounds quite ambitious,
but for sure given how low and flat the chassis sans body sits,
I would bet that some kind of sufficiently tacky Christmas themed thing could be lashed.

I gave Spider a lift down to Banwell to pickup his Harley,
a mere eleven thousand miles and the classic cam bearing failure,
apparently known fault with twin cam,
but usually at double the miles.
which to be fair is not actually untypical for a motor with rolling element bearings,
but Spider don't seem to get much luck that way.
