Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

Very cool. I especially like the rack, where did you get that? Is it an "off the rack" item or custom built? Sorry, couldn't miss using the pun... [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

Nice rigs.Whats up with the weird angles on the front missing links?I have never seen them in that situation.Also does the rack on the back hurt your departure angles very much?

Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

Rather than do a frame extension I used the frame as the bumpstop and used the original spring hanger w/cj fronts to extend the wheelbase a few inches. The 'upper shackle' is resting on the frame.

The rack on the Sammy sticks out the same distance as the spare, so no problem there.

Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

Check out my website... it lists all the equipment... I got my driveshaft from Roadless Gear and driveshaft spacers on both ends from RRO. Pinion angle is right at stock with no shims b/c of my upper shackle angle (dumb luck, that's all). Obviously I need to do something about the rear shackle, but I don't know if I want to reverse it or just go to regular shackles out back.

Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

The reason both are 'smooth as silk' is b/c neither is finished, so neither has been taken to do any 'real wheeling'. The pounder ('Kick) won't be wheeled on much of anything anyway since it's my DD and I need to keep it as clean as I can in case I have to sell it someday to get something more practical.

Re: Sidekick Poser PIC

Hey Sloan!

I see that you have the back bumper off your white 'Kick. Did you paint the exposed sheet-metal (the "under bumper ugliness") black? If Calmini EVER gets around to shipping me my new rear swing-arm rear bumper, I get the feeling it still won't cover ALL the ugliness, so I was wondering what you did there.

Thx
Bob
