2022 Winter Motorvation Formula II Restoration Project
« on: August 18, 2022, 03:26:57 PM »
Here's the post I placed in an older thread that led to this:

I bought this rig project today:

So my bride of 32 years spots a Harley+trailer is the local Walmart.  In a totally uncharacteristic fashion, she approaches the owner and starts up a conversation. She comes home with the dude's number....but for me!

"call this guy" she says you will like him.  And BTW...He has a sidecar for sale and, wait for it..."I think you should buy it".

So after picking myself off the floor I rang Duane and made an appointment to view his "barn find" Motorvation Formula II. 
It's rough and the body was "carved" to create a hinged door.  I like the results, only I wish he would have installed a finer blade on his saws-all, lots of fiberglass strings hanging out. Fine fellow, but that's how it's done "on the farm"

Are there accessories out there?

Motorvation is closed down correct?

It has a four-bolt hub and no brakes....cause for pause. Can I go 5 bolt?

Curious if someone can offer specifics on the mount to a GL1200 Aspencade.  Is there a specific mount kit? Will my pictured bits work?

Yes' I have the yellow book.

Yes I will seek out instruction....Where?

You have forgotten to mention the fact sir, that it was ME that gave your your very first sidecar ride and at 70mph,

Everyone is now going to dermand " Pictures or videos or it didn't happen"!

On top of that we have already become very awesome friends.
