1966 R60/2 with a Globe GS200 side car.

Everything is together and running well except I need to install stiffer springs on the front and rear of the R60. The ride is just a little too mushy.

If anyone has an old set or knows where I can get them please let me know.
thanks

Springs

Thanks Tommy
$164.67 from Bench Mark Works delivered. The rear springs are installed. I need a buddy to help me with the fronts but they should be installed sometime today. I look forward to the new ride.

side car springs

Good choice with Bench Mark Works
Very fast shipping and always best advise

Let us know what difference they make
When my R51 is done I will finish setting up my 55 R50 with a Velorex 560 sidecar

sidecar

First impression are good. The springs are in and the ride is much more planted and controlled. The true test will be taking the wife on a day trip. If all goes well there is a vintage ride in Western Va at the Graves Mountain Lodge in a couple of weeks. The plan is to have all the bugs worked out by then.

More impressive ..... I replaced the front seat bushing today as well. OMG .... what a difference. No more side to side wobbling. Was never sure it was the bike the seat or just me. Now I know.
