Yes, its a Duo from East Germany.
Here is its compliance plate.


Here is a photo of the other side which I inadvertently forgot to post in my previous thread, and one of the dummy fuel tank on the GG outfit.





BTW the Duo was owned by the publican in the village of Gieboldehausen, where we were attending the Motorrad-Reise Treffen rally.

Here some pics of the same beemer, I shot two years earlier (2006). Not really different, are they? The chair (the bomb) is not home-made, but I don’t remember the type at the moment. It will pop up.

It’s metal, with a lot of off-the-shelve parts. Huge boot / trunk.

Yep, that’s me. The lady in the picture behind the red beemer is Frau Winterbiker, part of the EGT organisation and allways having dog cookies for the dogs that came along in the sidecars.

I see now that Harald (a.k.a. Flint, who I saw for the last time in February this year, when I was in Austria), linked pictures made by Peter. (a.k.a. 3-Rad). Peter must have the largest library of sidecar pictures in the world. Just sent him some pics a couple of weeks ago.

Chris, the chair is a EZS Summit. It must have been around the same time I saw this Summit chair for the first time on the EZS Stand at the Sinsheim Sidecar Show in Germany.

A big contrast to Armec and GG. Horst operates out of a barn in a village.
Does all the work himself, and will build anything you want, including left hand side cars
OK Horst, I need 300mm ground clearance, 100lts fuel capacity, and a place for the 50 lt beer fridge.

No worries mate
Well Chris,

Horst Ullrich changed “something” to the barn. (look at the chinese markings on the wall). Horst “spying” my outfit:






Pics from the inside.

Here a pic of probably the ugliest beemer outfit I’ve ever seen (2001):



And a really nice Harley. The changes on the Bobby chair looked great. It’s not only because this pic is from the pre-digital era, that it looks like this, it was also really bad weather for days. (2001).

Here another yellow outfit. Shot this pic in 2002 (old camera and picture, scanned it). The distinguished gentleman from the UK built it himself. There’s a Vauxhall engine in the back.





There is an internetsite somewhere. Mayby somebody from the UK immediately remembers the link.

Would be scary if in the current configuration, the rear left side wheel
hit a dip in the road.

Calling Andy Gadget to the help phone

I'll elaborate further, tomorrow morning.

I'd say air is more likely. It was a "trend" for awhile on Harleys and other customs.....no kickstand, you dumped the air when you parked it and it sat on the ground.

Have a laugh at 2.00 min.
This was used as an invalid scooter in Comecon countries. It had full hand controls to facilitate operators with disabilities.

There was a legless veteran in our building in Poland when we were growing up that had one of these. I never saw him use it.

It was sadly gone by my last visit in 2003, along with countless other fascinating vehicles deposited on scrapheaps by their suddenly ungrateful 'liberated' owners

Yes, you're right. Most of these had this. I remember seeing these when I was a kid, on vacations to Germany with my parents (in a Beetle of course) by german one-legged or worse WWII veterans victims.
