My new to me rig

Yes, it looks real good from here. I have a genuine appreciation for painters after repainting our utility trailer - it can be difficult to have sufficient patience to apply multiple coats without runs.

yes painting is an art and requires a lot of patience. I just got in too big a hurry. I will go back and redo the 2 tone next season
here are a couple shots of it after the pearl
and a couple of the lower panels from the bike that I was color matching as well

well I got slowed down a little by a nail in the bikes tire. had leaks at the crown so I had to replace it. got it all back together this weekend so now I'm back on track to get the rig put back together.
I hope to mount the car back on the bike tomorrow. I wired a switch to operate the elec. lean while I had the bike on the jack for the tire, now I can use that feature. I hope to flush and bleed the brakes and get them working this week as well. the whole system looks like it's brand new but it's been sitting so I need to flush the fluid out.

I also have a Motorvation Formula II LTD sidecar. Your SC headlight looks like mine, but a few other items are different. You appear to have a single brake light/turn signal lens. I have separate amber and red lenses. I like the fold-down luggage rack on the back of the SC that we have, but it seems you may be pulling a trailer? That should give you more capacity. I've got a 9 gallon tank in the SC behind the seat giving me pretty good range. At Interstate Highway speeds I can't get 26 mpg with my Valkyrie, but I've weighted the rig on a grain elevator scale and fully loaded for a long trip it weighs more than an old VW Beetle. Of course that included me on the bike and my wife in the sidecar.

How did you get a LED bulb into the sidecar headlight housing?
