Is anyone aware of a (tilt / Lean / camber) control device that has ever been used on a Velorex 562? Just wondering.

No, I haven't. But hope to get a shock for my Ural sidecar that has a height adjustment with a hydraulic piston(or flexible cable as I understood first) that our friend Claus in Hamburg recommends. (once he will come back from his well earned vacations.)
Looked simmilar to this one from a different brand

I would be very interested in such a shock. I wonder if they make a similar shock which is electrically adjustable? I am looking into what I can do, if anything, with my Velorex. Age, arthritis and past injuries have taken their toll. I am building my 4th and perhaps last rig. Something affordable, I have shallow pockets, that I can cover some miles with. If you find out about that shock I would appreciate any wistom you could pass along. Charlie

Hello Charlie,
that will take 4 weeks.
I have my own old Velorex 562 in the corner, but am too lazy to pull it apart and it might differ from yours. In any case you will need the metric measurements for the existing shock when pulled out.
So you too have to do some homework.
There should be US equivilents available for not to hastle with transport and customs (perhaps Progressive?). In my case it doesn't matter from where I import, there is nothing available locally. And I need 4 more shocks for other bikes. (that aren't on sale in US)

Someone did it and publish it in Sidecarist about 2 years ago.
