How did your ride go? That is very sweet looking. I have been interested in a sidecar for my dog but haven't found one cheap enough.

You may want to play with the gearing to get it a little lower. You could do this at the clutch (basket). It will help out on take off and keep you from burning thru clutch plates. It will bring the top speed down to about 45. Good luck and let us know how the ride went.
