Tezza,

I just googled around and found some useful references. Some further digging might turn up the kinds of drawings or plans you're looking for. I hope this helps!

I like the Armec design especially. It looks like their web page is no more. I think you may be able to find enough pictures and such to replicate the design.

BMW with EML

Hey I just got around to checking out this section of ADVrider. Here's a picture of my hack, a 1986 BMW K100 with an EML GTll (I think) and Hannigan fairing.

hey RM,

I've raced MX side cars from '89 till '97. When I stopped with that I could spent more time on the (off-)road and bought my first Africa twin after selling my WR 250. In 2OO4 and a few bikes later I went a to winter rally in Germany with some friends and cause of the snow we didn't manage to get there, It was then that my buddy and I decided to build us some sidecars, so this wouldn't happen again.
After some studying we got us some steel pipes and a we bought us the lightest trailer axel with torsion suspension ( 500 kg load) on the marked and started fabricating.

I wish we had the Africa Twin here. Nice looking build. What made you choose the roll cage layout?

I still can't get it why honda never brought the twin to the US, think they don't like easy money Mine is already 22 years old and will never be sold, it's my second africa twin, when i sold the first one, I knew after two weeks that I made a mistake and started searching for another one.

I got inspired by the looks of a dune buggy, and for my opinion it would be the safest way to take my son with me, he sits in a kart seat with a three points safetybelt, atached between his legs and a metal roof above his head. the build had to be like that for me cause from my mx history I know that you can't fall with a sidecar, only roll, and even fly in the public, as I experienced in my time as a monkey

It took us nine month's to build two of them, everything is powder coated and build with new steel, the bothemplate is stainless.
the torsion suspension was used cause it's cheap and makes it an easy build. I first was afraid that the comfort would be zero, but on the road it's doable. big advantage from this setup is, that the whole thing stay's nice and steady in a left turn even with the long suspension travel of the bike itself.

It was a cheap build after all, it costed us 750 euro a piece to build them ( six years ago). and the fun they gave us in that period: PRICELESS.

Here the most recent pic I have, from an adventure rally 4 weeks ago

Honda brought the twin over badged as the Transalp, but they were ahead of their time, before the dualsport craze caught on here. They didn't sell well so Honda pulled the plug and never looked back. I think the Afrika Twin would be well positioned in todays market to compete with the GS and Strom, but then again, the economy sucks, so maybe not.

I use torsion axles on my KLR/enduro style rigs and am happy with the way they work on and off road. I do like the design you came up with and wish I had a bigger twin or triple instead of the KLR.

this one got done recently for Motorcyclepedia, the museum I'm doing photog work at. It's a made for 2 people extra wide body, and the frame of course had to be a made for 2 extra wide frame. A month ago this was a very rusty Harley, a very rusty body, and a side car chassis, none of which had previously been introduced. They've become fast friends.
