Awesome Guzzi Sidecar Rigs

Taking a trip anywhere involves a stop at the local Ural dealer. This time I was in Bavaria and I stopped at IWAN-BIKES Bavaria, Pfaffenhofen an der lim, Germany. I talked to Bernhard Peinter who I am guessing was the owner. A very nice fellow who has been selling Urals for almost 20 years. He also sold Victory, Yamaha, Enfield and Moto Guzzi's. He also does customs and this Guzzi sidecar rig caught my eye.

The first picture is of one he had just sold and the next is of one he had for sale. As a Ural owner I went ga ga over the Guzzi because it is everything the Ural is, and, it will do highway speeds all day.

Yikes! Nice looking Guzzi outfits. The blue Beemer in the background looks nice as well.

Guzzi's make great sidecar bikes, we have done many and make mounts for most of the older Guzzi's and many of the newer ones. We have a Stelvio in the shop right now waiting to be picked up. A few weeks ago we had 5 Guzzi's in the shop all getting sidecars.

Drooling!

That 1st Guzzi is SWEET! Don't know why that hadn't occurred to me, all that Guzzi torque combined with the classic looks is perfect. The o.d. green is just gravy, must bring back memories of my time in the army.

What is the reason to relocate the shock to the front like they are?

It helps keep the track narrow.

My first real bike was a late 70s SP1 I've always had a soft spot in my heart for them I got teased allot, all my friends rode Ducati's. Number 74 there is very cool.DB

By this I think you are referring to the Leading Links Dan?

Simply put, think power steering opposed to non assisted steering on a car.

I was meaning the shock on the sidecar, the swingarm has been relocated - or at least the shock mount - has been relocated and pivots at the front.
