Hi, thanks for your reply.

I am in Wanganui. The chassis and the connecting components from chassis to bike need finishing, the subframe needs some slight alterations (subframe needs another attachment point onto frame up closer to the neck/head) and needs finishing. I really need an engineer/welder type person or business to finish this off, I have very limited skills.

I have ridden this bike around the neighbourhood with it attached and it handles ok (was a bit light with no body or any ballast on the chair side, lol) . The guy (a sidecar racer and builder Roger Stent) who built this chassis and set up the suspension with the wheel and shock that I supplied said it handled really well when he rode it to my place.
I raced speedway sidecars for a few years, but have only a little road riding experience with the chair.
