Is the tug a UJM that never made it to the US? Good looking rig, I like the KR paint scheme. I'd love to have a RZ350 in that paint scheme...

Soon.

The owner is collecting it from the Ace Cafe, London, on the 31st March during the Sidecar Saturday event.

All at Motopodd are looking forward to this great day!

But not as much as the owner is!

You do know your bikes

It's built by one of he guys at www.motor-forum.nl , nicknamed "Kwastert", which loosely translates ( in slang/dialect ) to "Painter"

Link to the topic ( in Cloggie of course, but you can see the pics )

No, it is an XJ900 (FJ900) which previously has been hauling a EML 2001 sidecar. The owner bought a new EZS sidecar and let them install it. Being a painter by profession he designed and painted the combination himself. What else could he choose but the KR design for a Yamaha?

Somewhat mounted

Well I started mounting the Formula II to my Intruder. I need a nice concrete floor, but my carport will have to do. I have the lower mounts done and will be doing the upper mounts tomorrow. Then hopefull the wireing Monday or so. Looks like the track is going to be about 54", I don't know if this is about what others are. I also have the sidecar's axle set forward of the bike's rear axle by 12 inches. This cruiser sits so low. And the paint will come later after it all gets sorted out.

I have done ALL of my fitting/mounting in my carport on very UNEVEN gravel,I feel your pain brother !!.
12" of lead should be fine,the intruder is a fairly long bike !!.The two match up well and with paint it should look AWSOME !!!!

So, then you admit that you are not the ONLY thing which has accumulated a patina of age in your shop.......???

1st ride

Well I got it together today....gonna have to play with the setup. Have some front end shake. I have a steering stabilizer to install and gonna play with the toe in/out setting. Right now I am running 3/4" toe in and 12" of axle lead. The short ride was surely different than I have ever had on a bike. Still have the wiring to do , since it is gonna rain for the next 3 or 4 days, I guess that will be my project.
