According to the website, Ronny Renders from Belgium was the only sidecarrist to finish the Dakar within the given time.
This is the video. At 40 seconds Russell Brand comes into frame, throws on a helmet and then appears to ride as a competent passenger!!





The race start, after a couple of minutes, looks awesome!

It's all together now and rideable.

I got it all together and it's rideable.......the steering stabilizer sure does a great job. Check it out.

MotoX sidecars of that era were made out of Reynolds 531(Chromoly) and had thin tubing for weight reduction and in the big league were replaced each season or sooner. The problem with Chromoly is it work hardens then cracks(particularly thin tube). But that takes quite a while, this frame looks like an early 80's!!!
