This is how big truck tires are mounted, and works well for ATV's too

Be careful!!! Not too much juice!

Nemo I tried that with gas on an implement wheel with a big ass high flotation tire on it. A little scarry, and then it went down before I could cap it.Must need more practice.

Yeah, ya gotta start with a little. If it's not enough use a little more. Then shove the valve in as soon as the bead seals. I wouldn't use gas tho, it burns too slow. Ether gives a good pop and goes out, you don't want a flame shooting out the valve stem while you're trying to plug it

Somebody told me two of my old sidecar-outfits were for sale on our local sales sites. When looking at those advertisements, I saw this for sale:

Ace, the guy is asking 15,500 Euro’s for this 1999 Bike. The outfit was built in 2006. Not cheap.

G/day all, back with a few more Oz outfits.

This is Dick Barrington's outfit, with his own idea of front wheel suspension using a rear BMW K single sided suspension.




He is a hard pusher of the outfit and ended up with this on the way to Birdsville.



Notice the astute use of fencing wire to hold the frame together, never leave home without a good pair of wire cutters

Who say's you need horsepower to tour Oz?

Greg and Robin Doubleday's 350 Jawa outfit complete with matching accessories




But it to needed a bit of welding as well.
Note the one finger salute, long before ADVR was even an idea and claims it as its own. (these photo's taken August 1996 on the way to the OCR at Wollogorang Old)



Here is Toad of WA with his toadmobile saluting the camera



Nick and family






Beet when he and his outfit were lean and mean



Compare to this as he got older



Sally enjoying the mighty Tuck Truck, Herbie not so sure about his, and for good reason



Airheads are like Poms (don't like water). The Tuck Truck to the rescue



You can bet Trish the sidecar passenger was happy that she had protection.



The Royal pub at Eromonga Qld, whose claim to fame is that it is the furthest pub from the sea anywhere in Oz



My first outfit coming out of the Alpine Rally on the Rules Point rd, June 1986.



to this, when the Tuck Truck was still virginal



Opps, had just better check that there is enough fuel. Heading to Barkley Homestead from Wollorgorang NT.




Sandover Hwy NT, August last year, dirt all the way







Doing a bit of circle work on Slab's 1200 Bandit


A broken frame, miles from anywhere. No big deal.



A spot of welding and we are away



Here's to sidecars and touring, just dosen't get any better then this



Cheers

Should go over there and see if I can do some of them trails.

That rig is spectacular. Claude, have you built another HU style rig yet? I remember the R100GS one you built a couple of years back.
