It's not really too hard but it is time consuming. All the small parts were brought in and done while watching TV.

2 noob questions

I love this thread and daydream of sidecars all winter long. 2 easy questions:
1) Has anyone taken a newer BMW and made it 2 wheel drive like the Urals?
I don't know much about Beemers other than reading online but is it possible to do? Wait, anything is possible, is it worth trying to do? I know that the Urals top out around 65mph, so I'm just wondering if anyone has adapted a 2wd to a more powerful BMW bike for more highway friendly use.

2) It looks like the dogs I see in some of the hacks have a harness on. Is there a sidecar specific dog set-up or do guys rig something up? My old dog HAD to be able to move around in my Jeep. He refused to sit in the front if I had the rear seat out or the top down. The pics I've seen look like the harness keeps Fido locked into an upright sitting position.

Love this thread!

I love this thread too, but this is the picture thread. For your questions, start two new thread in HACKS. Lotsa folks will respond. Both are good questions. But let's keep the picture thread a picture thread not a chat thread.

I like this thread where everybody can present his and any other sidecar bike, which I must follow!

Why is not this a "Sticky"?

Thanks guys. I haven't really explored the Hacks section enough to have realized that. The site is so huge and even though my post count is low I've been a member for years. I just kinda concentrated on threads involving bikes I have/had or places I'm going.
I'll check out the rest of the section.

stricly blacktop for this one - actually it mostly stays in the shed while we ride our solos - much more fun.

After 10000 hours of hard work, more than 10 years from time to time in the garage and about 15000 Euros spent, the Snaefell was ready to ride!
As you can see, the result is really impressive for a work done by an amateur...http://breganzane.com/blog//snfl.php

François, you are a mad man! That is incredible! Love the exhaust in this pic--



I can't imagine the work and obsession needed for this project.

Well done!
