Went to a motorcycle rally Sunday at a large dealer in Scottsdale, Arizona. A guy showed up with a triumph/watsonian rig. He had a picture on his phone of a new Front end modification for Ducati (a scrambler in this case) for sidecar use. I didn't have a lot of time to get details :( but I believe he said DMC made it. Consisted mainly of two L shaped plates which mounted to the bottom of the fork tubes, relocating the axle and Front wheel forward.
A remarkable creation, have not been able to find any info on the Internet. I'm extremely interested, has anybody out there heard of this adaptation?

Sounds like "leading links" or "leading legs"... You should find some threads on the forum here easily enough and elsewhere with the help of Google...

Yeah, sounds like DMC's leading legs for the Scrambler. They look like this--

Oui--thought he might be Canadian--but he is actually French. I lived in Tacoma many years--my cuz said it's really exploding.

How did we know? Tongue out

Here is a pic of Philippe and me with our SO's, and Philippe with the leading leg Triumph in question.

 

Oops!  I guess I'm not in the picture -- somebody had to hold the camera I guess!
