Remember the outdoor welding in this thread? Uwe (KNEPTA) welding a fender with one battery. Pics by Robert (UNIMOG).





Couldn't choose the best pic.

Off-topic? So, what?

Maybe Iím just a strange guy and look at a sidecar in a different way. Beyond the perfect paint job.

Good job. I like the sidecar wheel and disk brake conversion (BMW front wheel) on the Ural frame and the Smart wheel in the rear of the bike, as well as the trail reducer in the front. (home made?) What is with the exhaust? Had some problems?

Or is it just the pic, since itís a bit small to see details. Any pics of the mounts?

Is that a 3.50-19 Avon sidecar tire in the front and on the hack? Low speed index, you know.

I bet you donít see a lot of outfits like yours in CZ.

The original exhaust was too big and was in the way of the subframe. So it was replaced by 1150 silencer plus simple pipe between silencer and front part of exhaust system. It is a bit lauder than standard 1100GS.

Yes on the front and sidecar wheel is Avon sidecar tire. I do not care about the speed limit since I do not drive fast. At the begin (when the tires were brand new) it was hard to keep the sidecar in the way where I wanted it to ride. But after few hunderts of kilometers the tires got little bit worn and they are OK now.

Yes, Richard, there is not many sidecars on Czech streets.

I believe that the subframe is bullet proof...

That rig looks amazing. Did you build it yourself?

I only wish I was capable of building it -- it was put together by Dauntless in Washington.
It's quite light handling yet it seems pretty stable when I ride it on pavement. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

Something like that would be neat on an F800GS....

G650XC hacked

@ Tychoendo,

I like that. I have been pondering my mind what bike to use to build a light offroad combo and the G650XC crossed my mind. Have you ridden it with a passenger, i.e. can it tow the weight at climbs a.s.o ? Secondly has the trail been altered? I can't see toomuch detail of the front end.

Mmmm. Details. Let me think. Aschaffenburg license plates on the pic. Well, thatís close enough to Frankfurt. EML-chassis, EML-chair and EML-front-swingarm. Typical eighties, beginning nineties dual-sport outfit. Several parts of different origin. Rear swingarm (extended?) by Horst Ullrich. Rear wheel and sidecar wheel from a CitroŽn 2CV. Bilstein shocks. (maybe even air suspension on the hack for heavy loading).

Obviously a trailerhook, trailerhook, trailerhook.....

Got it. I knew I made a pic of this outfit.

Hey Richard, about the welding one question; they didn't get problems with the
eyes? Okay, this welding I saw, like to wear yellow glases, but when you weld
in the normal way, you can hurt your eyes. That's not funny, many miles far
far away from home . . .
