It was in the flea market about a year or so ago. I wasn't in a position to buy it at that time. I decided to get one recently and it turned out it had never sold so I scooped it up.

Hi My name is Paweł and I try to build motorcycle with sidecar: BMW 1150 GSA and Ural. I have some qestions: Do You had any problem with sidecare during ride like vibration on stearing wheel. Did You construct turn shock absorber? Occure any cracks on the basic construction? How many liters of petrol consume Your machine?Do You have any drawings or instruction from Your old sidecar (angle and distant beetwen wheel from sidecar and motorcycle are important for me). Thanks for Your answer Paweł (Poland)

Pawel,

Your best bet is to contact a sidecar company in Europe to obtain a subframe & mounts to attach your Ural tub to your 1150GSA. You absolutely do not want to build that yourself, the 1150s have been around long enough that there are people out there in the sidecar business who have worked out the right way to mount a sidecar to them. A properly engineered mounting system will prevent cracks to you bikes frame from stress related to the additional load of he sidecar.

With the standard fork setup you should not have much steering feedback, in fact you may find it to be a bit on the stiff side. A steering damper is commonly employed after the front fork angle has been changed (modified) to make the rig's steering easier. But, the answer is, if you leaving your forks alone you most likely won't need a "turn shock absorber".

I recommend you buy a mounting system and after attaching the sidecar, see how the steering feels and make those modifications/additions only if you feel like you need them.

I only recommend the European sidecar company because I don't know what would be involved in having it imported to Poland from CSM or DMC. I hope Claude or Jay will add their thoughts to this.
