What an excellent thread! Hours and hours of unique sidecars and I'm only halfway through after WEEKS of looking.

These ones are not so fancy but interesting anyway :)


A real rasta-hippie home built rig belonging to some guys I met near Malang, Indonesia


A Vespa with ape hangers and home built chair with 3 passengers. Wish this photo was clearer, it was an all around awesome rig! We ran though a whole pack of them one day. Must have been scooter weekend.
Somewhere on Java, Indonesia.


A back shot where you can see the ape hangers and what not a bit better.


I don't even know what to call this thing but those kids were SERIOUSLY BRAVE! They were so low to the ground that a good amount of the traffic couldn't see them. Again, somewhere on Java.


Same as above from the rear.


Friend on his Ural during the late 80's. Near Abakan, Russia.


Steet Ural near Abakan. Who knows what year?


I just like it because it matches the car, the apartment, the bench, and everything else. Must have been a sale on blue paint!

I don't know why I didn't get a pic from the front. With a bit of polish and love this thing would look classic and great!

The third issue of the international sidecar magazine shows a BMW R 100 R combo driving through mud somewhere on backdoor roads in Czechia. This ride report is also complete in english language and includes a review of building the bike. Single copies can aslo be ordered at our online-shop www.gespannfahrer-shop.de




Also inside: Testride of a BMW S 1000 RR outfit.

Great picture. Looks like you will have many good memories of your time with your Ural and your son.

XS/Velorex

Its nearly finished . Almost 3 months behind schedule and a few hundred dollars over budget but I still have less than $1500 in the whole outfit.






This winter I will build a proper exhaust for it and beef up the suspension on the car. I was worried that the bike would be underpowered compared to the previous GS-850 tug but it does fine. The only thing I am concerned with is the brakes, The single disc doesnt have the power to panic stop the rig and the rear drum tends to lock up and slide.

Any pics of the mounts? I have a 1978 XS650 I am hooking up to a Spirit Eagle and I am still not quite sure which direction to head with the mounts. I think the frame is too short at the bottom for the bottom rear mount.
