I know a lot of owners don't rate the FWH front brake but I've not found mine too bad 'considering' and I live in a very hilly area and most of the time I’m two up.  Maybe down to the linings I’ve got or brake drum geometry, etc. I’m thinking that if I need to improve the braking, with sidecar attached, I would first try some new high quality linings.

The chair I'm getting is a single seater and only weighs 85 kg (see photo). It doesn't have a brake fitted at the moment but Watsonian do a kit to fit, so it’s an option.

I had a sidecar on an A10 G/F some years ago, got on fine with it and really enjoyed it.  Didn't change a thing on my A10, apart from screwing down the steering damper, I kept the solo gearing and standard fork springs. It was a Canterbury double adult, so a big chair and I kept it for just over a year before going solo again when I needed to travel long distances at weekends (sold it to a motorcycle shop for £10.00).

Your right Julian, I bought those a couple of years ago but I didn’t have any confidence that they would be any better than what I already had, so they were put to one side.

Jim - there's pics somewhere - I believe it's under 'other bikes' or whatever the title is. Can never find things on this forum so don't ask me for a link! Other than fitting the calipers, seat and rear mudguard, nothing much changed since then. For obvious reasons I want to make sure it actually runs before finishing off - eg front mudguard, chain guard, exhausts, alter fuel tank to clear front carb, lights, horn, footrests etc.
Found it https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=14353.0 There are probably more older posts.
Looking good!

I reckon a few ounces of Blue Dot would shift it.

Looking at the photo the imported shoe does not look as substantial as the original.

Rode the A10 to a farming meeting in Glen Clova. Frost and thick fog most of the way there though much better on the way back.
190 mile round trip, a steady 65-70mph on the faster bits. On arrival, a few comments ranging from "my brother had an A7" to " you passed us on the way here".
Nice to cross the Forth and Tay bridges again.

forks look like carbon blades but no just covers over normal forks... the rear shock arrangement, nothing clever just a twin shock like an A10.
so a styling exercise rather than anything innovative. something to pose on rather than a riders machine
