    Sidecar Parts List

    OK this is to give potential builders a rough idea of the parts they will need to find to build an outfit from scratch.

    Its quite hard to be exact as there are many ways of doing most things. The way the axles mount being the biggest difference between the type of parts you are likely to need to find or get made. Here I've listed what is probably the easiest way to get the spinny bits attached with minimal special machining required although if you search hard enough you'll find some kart hub/brake carrier arrangements that fit together in the kind of way that could be useful for our needs. The method I've gone for here is much the same as my own outfit which is the same system some of the other have used. An axle mounted on bearings with hubs/brake carriers and sprokets able to slide up and down using a keyway and be nipped up at the location needed. This gives easy adjustment and less need to get things perfectly measured in advance which also means less details to get right too. So quite an easy and sturdy route to take although maybe not the lightest scenario.

    None of this is set in stone and everything can be tailored to suit your own thoughts, needs and whats available to you. Its only meant as a vague guide and starting point.

    My advice would be to have some key points decided upon before designing anything. Stuff like...... What engine, axle/hub intentions as above and style of outfit/how the passenger will operate. With these things known you'll be able to find a direction to go in and be able come up with some dimensions for your chassis.

    If you spot any major bits I've forgotten about please advise and I'll edit accordingly.

    Ok I guess as a continuation on a theme we could have some links to exhample parts to help identify stuff, there are a fair few kart shops which i will try and gather up in a directory at some point, also some of them trade on ebay and some trade second hand parts as well. If anyone wants to add any links to useful stuff then fill your boots (yeah I know, not expecting much response atm). The ebay links wont work forever so I'll have to come back and redo them once in a while.
