Hey beat

I know you won't listen to the doctors or to Hannalore, but please rest up and take it easy.

Whilst your body heals I'm sure your brain will be super active. Keep that graph paper handy and your pencil sharp!

Best wishes

Hi Beat,
Lynn and I wish you all the best. It'll take time to get strength back so don't over do things without a brace for a while - take it slowly.

Beat,

i found this thread at the moment, and i am very impressed to say the least !
Believe it or not i live 15 Kilometers from Möggers, i am there every time except this year as i was in hospital myself.
It would have been great to see you there &lt;069

Sorry to hear that you crashed, this track is really tough especielly for a vintage sidecar.

3 Years ago we had the sidecar World Championship there, and there was also a Demo with old bikes, some very nice Hedlunds (800cc singles and V-Twins ) . Its a shame that your Goldie was not finished back then.
May be you were there as a spectator ?

Get well soon ! :thumb

hi Oli,

thanks for the reply, - yes, Möggers is a special track, - a real clay - mud as I never have seen this.
and this clay was actually the reason for breacking my neck!
shame :???:

I was away for more than 45 years from any racing activity, as a rider as well as a spectator.
this year in Möggers it was a race for the Swiss champion ship, and because Corona, - spectators have not been wellcome.

so- lucky for us, - nearly no-one could see our ugly crush!

lucky, I getting better now, and I do work on the new fork for old Goldie...

Another question Beat.

Is there a reason that the steering head of your frame is not round ?

Re: Star

Post by beat »

yes Oli, there is.

as you see, the steering is something " upside down " ore " inside out ".
means - I have located the bearings NOT in the Head, no, they are in the yokes.
the reasons are: more lightweight AND easier to produce.
and as a result, the head can be square for easier production and less work to forming the other frame tubes on to the head.

so, reasons enough for me to go this way, and it is working good so far.

Re: Star

yes, - one problem by building a fraim is always the shape of the seats of the bearings in the headstock.
by welding the fraimtubes to the stock, the seats getting oval and deformed.

to avoid this, I do this " inside out " system.
by having the bearings in the yokes, I can finally welding the yokes and after this, I can take the all yoke on to a smal lathe and finally machine the bearing place.

as the square form of the stock, - it is chosen for this fraim only because 5 fraimtubes are coming to the stock. so it is really easier to do.

the next fraim ( in planing - means in my head ) will have two fraimtubes only coming to the stock, - so headstock will be round as well.

hi mark

Hannelore is NOT enjoyed by the Idea of getting back on the race bike!

myself, I say as it depends on the gymnastic and fitness I can do without feeling pain.
if this comes close to that it was before, - yes, I guess I will race again .

( at least the doctor says, as my neck will never break again at the same place )

as the sst is sensitive about vibrations, the oil tank,- means this thick tube, - tendencing to crack.
the outer diameter is 63 mm and wall thickness is 1.5 mm only. this last 30cm of the tank is hanging free by the lower end, and creates the problem at the weldings.

so I cut it off and connecting it together with a pice of silicone hose.

guess like this I will get shot of the problem.
&quot; hanging &quot; oil tank in rubber now
" hanging " oil tank in rubber now
I could not find any other serious cracks at the fraim ( and there are many weldings on it ), I am happy so far with the design and would do it in the same manner again.

so, - start screwing it together once more:
