I've got a bunch of tests/homework this week, but I'll find a day to wheel them back out of the garage for a photo shoot.

They appear to turn over and have compression. The PO claims to have cleaned out the carbs and petcocks, so.. we'll see what it'll take to get one to fire up.

The sidecar rig is what I will focus on first. The conversion was just a bonus-bike.

I think I hear the unmistakeable sound of large quantities of green paper being sucked down a hole.
Never to be seen again.
Good Luck!
Keep us posted.

You asked for it.

The sidecar rig:









It's all just surface rust. The worst looking areas are still sound.



This bike's been somewhere:



I'm pretty sure this switch is correct:



..but is this?



This is a bumper sticker I approve of:



The conversion:

This bike, I was afraid to receive. I knew it'd be too cool to get rid of, but I really wanted to focus my money on the sidecar rig. Oh well! Life is rough sometimes..









Someone boogered with the transmission top, so I wonder if I can booger with the side and put a starter on this bike..



How do I unlock this? Besides turning the key..



The loot:





Cliff notes: a huge money pit.

Now, if you want to quote me or talk about a certain picture, don't quote them all!

Interesting adapter plate there--looks to be cut from a VW transmission, therefore the starter mount. I think you'd end up hitting oil if you tried to remove enough transmission to clear a starter. Motor looks like a stockish single carb 40 horse, and it should kick easier than a /2, as they had minimal compression (7.5ish).
