My 1997 Windle/Suzuki sidecar is shaping up. I’ve spent the weekend finishing the paint (just grey primer for now) and decals, along with a few minor mechanical tweaks. Bill Becker and Becker Moto Works did a great job with the fiberglass body reinforcements, allowing my passenger a more secure handhold and cutting down on the distortion it has at high speed.
The bike looks really sweet and it sounds quite nice, though a lumpy idle makes me think the carburetors are out of sync. We’ll check it all out before my upcoming race March 15. I’m excited to get back to the fun part of racing… actual racing!
Stay tuned for a full report. and updates, and make sure to go to my sidecar racing photo album at www.myspace.com/johnny_killmore to see more pics of the new machine.
