Tom’s Sunbeam Leaner Sidecar Project – Haul N Ride

Tom’s Sunbeam Leaner Sidecar Project

Tom’s project is the attachment of a Unison Leaner to a 1950 Sunbeam, however, due to limitations on the Pivot Points, is considering attaching with the same method as the Armec Sidewinder.

Tom has chosen a 3″ difference between the Front Pivot Mount and the Rear Pivot Mount.

Tom – “I can get about 45 degree lean, which on a Sunbeam is quite daring, even whilst riding solo. Trying to keep the weight under 50kg finished.”

Dave – I am wondering, Tom, how you will put a passenger in the boat if there is no shock absorber on the sidecar wheel? Is it a torsion shocky?

Tom – Yes my son is going in the tub, the tyre will be run at about 10 – 15 psi to give some cushioning, the bike only has 1/2″ of springing at the back anyway.

Perhaps Tom’s Leaner Sidecar will look like this: 1950 Sidebeam Sidecar

Dave – Thank you Tom for sharing with Haul N Ride.

Ride safe, Dave
