She just came home

I would like to introduce you all to my latest addition, I needed an extra wheel on this one. Although bmweuro beat me to the first post (I guess he was allowed, he did build it for me) I get this one....



More?




I will be posting more details as time goes on....

One of the first things I want to know is details about the wheels and tires.

And that Corbin seat looks great. It's a Corbin, right?

135r 15 on the sidecar and rear 125 r15 on the front, spare fits both the sidecar and the rear The BMW hub where modified and laced to the 15" car rims, all done by bmweuro.. Yes the seat is a Corbin.

A little googling shows that there is a decent selection of tires available in both those sizes including Michelin, Firestone, Hankook, and of course Toyos. Very nice. I'm gonna PM Chris to see if he has any similar cool solutions for the front end of my GS.

On the rig, my only concern is rocks getting kicked up by the front wheel and damaging the car battery. I think I'd feel happier with some kind of protective plate on the front side of the battery tray. Unless you never go on gravel or dirt?

It has been less than a week since it left my shop and I already miss it. I guess I better build one for myself.

Sssaaaawwweeettt!

You don't know how much that makes me want to get my hack back up and running. A really beauty for sure. You'll have to give us your impression of the seat ASAP.
