Me loves an eml

I'D SELL IT TO SLACKER.......I have been looking for a nice K100 EML ...
I think URAL's are always a good economical choice for a hack

So you have the bike, fame and wheel and you're just missing a tub, is that right? I'd say a Ural, Dnepr, DMC or any similar tub could be made to fit the EML frame. Pinwheel Cycle on EBay often has just Ural tubs available. I would also check with Holopaw Ural, Crawford, etc.

You might advertise on the United Sidecar Association, IBMWR site, or BMWOA site for tubs, too. You might even get lucky and find an actual EML car.

The K100 is a monster tug, and EML stuff is about as heavy duty and well engineered as it gets.

I'm new to the fourm so I'm trying to figure out how to put on pictures. At this stage in the game the whole thing is not much to look at. It was busted up pretty good when I bought it.

Use Smugmug (They support the site) or Photobucket for hosting pics.

Pictures are on the way. I thought about doing a ural tub on the frame and still might. I think I'm going to try and build a custom tub I'm thinking of maybe something off road styled where the money sits higher up. Maybe something with an adjustable seat so the monkey and sit lower for riding on the highway or at higher speeds. I just don't know if doing a tub like that on a k100 is stupid.

You are new here!
It's a sidecar, almost anything goes! Spend some time looking through the threads at what folks are building. There is no singular theme for a build. Take a look at FR700's build for starters.

No luck on the build link, it did not work. I tried a search and did not find it. I put some pictures but it said I had to have them approved by a moderator. So I guess I'm just waiting for that.

Maybe depends on GT2 arrangement for fittings as to how complex the project might become. If it was originally mated to an EML bike frame, I.e. an old airhead Beemer, then it might present difficulties. Of course, there'll be subframe issues with the K.
On the tub front, certainly some choice with the expected flat chassis.

I have the whole eml package. Except its all bent and screwed up. I have bent leading links. And a eml subframe with attachments for the frame. Once everything is straightened and fixed all I will be missing is a sidecar body to sit ontop of the gt2 frame. The project has already been very complex but I have someone helping me that knows a thing or too so nothing has been impossible yet.

I'm guessing you don't want the correct tub for the frame?
If price is a major concern a cheap route is an Alum tool box made for pickup truck in bed use. Great for hauling cargo and you can bolt a seat into it if desired.
