On the list of "Very Bad Ideas that are in fact BRILLIANT Ideas", this must rank pretty high ....

Question, is the "sidecar" wheel driven ? If so, who controls it ?
Regardless, it's still Brilliant !

I can see a gray cable running from the forward upper mount. I expect it to be an Hondamatic with a double trottle cable

I was out for a ride today on my 1972 R75/5/Dnepr. Been having some carburator issues, and just changed the rear tire. It is doing really well for a 40 year old.

The old Ural got sold last year. The new has one in the opposite corner. When we did our cross country trip I had another 3 gallon strapped to the hack step. It was unnecessary, even in the remote deserts. The only changes that I've since made was to get rid of the windshield which was just for the long trip. No other changes to come.

After my post in the Aussie forum, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=228

We made the trip to Tasmania to pick up our new toy and my first ride of an outfit, an experience to say the least. After a few km's it all started to feel a bit more natural

1986 Kawasaki Z1300
BME No 036 Leading Link (Koni Shocks)
Car rear tyre
HRD Sidecar, not sure if it's a 1.5 or 2 person, it's big!

On the ferry tomorrow night, then back to Sydney

HRD Sidecar, not sure if it's a 1.5 or 2 person, it's big!
You're gonna have fun!

1.5 or 2? If the wheel arch is half inside the line of the body, it's a 1.5.
Ron Hurdis didn't make a 1.5 until he saw the one I had, made by Geoff Lindsay. And the only reason he did end up making it was because Felix ? had seen mine and raised it with him.
The design mean he didn't need to create a jig for a third chassis.

It's pretty wide, so maybe it's a double.?

Have fun, anyway.
