SBW Sidecar
 
Seen this at the NEC show, Birmingham, today and wondered if any one has got one. They are not cheap!

It really is a perfect match for a serious 12GS. I would hope that it does not end up in the hands of some poseur.

Drone, at 11.5K it probably will.

I bet Claude could make one just as nice for less money!!

Thanks for sharing. Enfield ( ? ) in the back ground with the chair looks interesting.

50+ inches of track , hardly any lead , massive front overhang ... it already screams poseur. A well fabricated one but not what I'd want off the beaten track.

Correct, the blue outfit is Watsonians Harry Potter style outfit.

With that full width swinging axle, the seat would need to be raised six to eight inches to have had it over axle for more lead.

FR700 11-28-2012 06:12 PM

The suspension design adds nothing , like you said , a swing arm anchored inboard running transverse and controlled via adjustable radius arms. Whoop-dee-do , the thing goes up and down.



Claude's efforts would wipe it off the map in comparison for a fraction of the cost.

With Harris Engineering, Watsonian-Squire and Mobec all involved in the project, it might pay to wait a bit before knocking the design.

Pops design I was impressed with. Norton's Big 4 , clean, simple , elegant.

The so called big names you mention ... not so much. Another you-an my-grammar , charlie booringman wank in the making. The tech , for those that like that kind of thing , yeah , OK , but I'd think in the technical off road stuff a stock 2WD ural would embarrass it.


:lurk



:lol3

How does one actually get into the seat, and out?:huh

MotoJ 11-29-2012 05:24 AM

That car was posted here in a thread with a link to YouTube videos of the prototype being fabricated, a year or so ago.
Don't know how to search for it. The fabbers were getting hammered pretty good by some inmates, IIRC.

I like it. Looks great. The integrated headlights are kind of cool. The frame looks pretty lightweight. 4130 maybe. :dunno

Oh well...doesn't hurt to ask? BRB.
