Oooh. A diamond in the rough. Can't wait to see how you (re-)finish her off.

I couldn't imagine too many sidecars that would look good on a PC but that just might work.

White Trash, my '81 GL1100 rig. It's definitely a hoot to drive. I've put a lot of miles on it over the years, and it is still strong. Not an off road rig, but it handles the freeway and twisties very well, and holds it's own on county gravel roads and ranch roads. Not enough clearance for "off roading".

Nice outfit. It just looks brand new and hardly used.

Don’t want to frighten you, but these specific EML wheels seem to have a metal-fatigue problem, when they get older as 25 years. Carefully inspect the rims and the weldings between spokes and rims, especially when changing tires. I’ve seen that 3 times now. If you want to, I probably can find some pics. Welding them is no problem. Especially look at the rear wheel and the sidecar-wheel. Just a nice-to-know-thing.

That is so true. My rear wheel suffered a bad attack of rust coming from the inside of the rim, outward's. Onlly noticed it when paint started peeling off. Caught it just in time (there were 5 serious split's in the rim). My remedy was to weld a Citroen 2 CV rim onto existing hub/spoke's. Keep an eye on the rim's.
Safe riding Karl.

I replaced the drive wheel on the mule two years ago with a wheel from HT Wheels, here in the States. Metal fatigue from miles, and welding the spokes made it out of round. The other two wheels don't show fatigue. I bought the outfit at 85k and have 120k on it now. It has been painted twice now, so it looks pretty good for it's age.

The EML parts are the biggest issue, especially wheels and brakes. The Honda parts are fairly cheap in the used department, and very available. I like the outfit a lot. It is easy to travel long and far, or hit the twisty roads and have fun.

Wow, mint condition? That rig's gotta be what, two, maybe even three years old.
