After my sister saw the motor bike rocker she wanted a rocker to fit 2 toddlers Cars are the obvious choice. Any one any other ideas. I want to look into this before getting committed (I know I should be) to making one. Mind you I am still painting the bike so have a little time to decide and say yes to her

What about a trike then you could allow for a third seat if the need arrises, of course you could just do a similar bike but with 2 seats like the old "king,Queen" style.?
 
Whatever you choose good luck, i am still trying to avoid making one myself, grand kids havnt seen yours yet.!

A motor bike a side car sounds wonderful, and should be achievable using the design that you have already used, but combining a side car.

The bike with a side car does sound nice but do I realy want to do another bike so soon after finishing this one. I know I said that making 1 or 2 is fine But I like to have a break inbetween projects that are the same But thanks for the input

The little mites have gone back home now so its safe to turn the  computer back on !, besides they are 3 and 5 so by the time i  finished it and they got to play with it they would be to old for it
 
well thats my excuse and i am sticking to it !
 
just another thought, why dont you build a rocking boat just for a change ? it would go well as a rocking toy, just dont make them sea sick

Hi Allre">

Have articles 1 & 2 of the Rocking Motorbike Project of June/July 2003, but am missing article 3 (August issue).  Any help obtaining this would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Dave.

I go along with Ralphs boat, a nice racing style  should be easier than a motor bike, unless you fit an outboard motor.
 
 Good luck

Or an aeroplane with stubby wings, a train, I hope the motor bike and sidecar goes better than the last one (of four) I had
