I think mutineer has an R75 and would like to make it into a 3x2?
Not sure what the welding set has to do with anything, perhaps it produces fumes?
There isn't any practical way IMHO to make the R75 into a 3x2 except to buy a Ural and graft the motor in. These days IMHO it'd achieve roughly the same thing if you sold the BM and bought a whole Ural 750. If you want to go the first route, you need to talk to serious Ural people and get drawings to make a spacer plate. This allows the Ural gearbox to be fitted to the BM engine.
I'm reasonably sure that mutt would blow a ural up.
In short order.
Course, looks like he's planning to melt that airhead frame, so maybe that's the cheaper option.
Best o' luck to you mate.
That is a pretty lofty goal you've got there.
I'd do the same, Begin with a Ural drive train, the cut and weld from there.
and not to re-iterate, but, PUI???
What do PUI mean?
don't worry about it Claude- it's good clean livin' that got you where you are today
(Posting Under the Influence )
may have been up little bit late and PUI would be an understatement
I've only used ambien twice, but I had awful nightmares about fuses and monkeys and sovietski bikes, too.
I know, cool stuff huh
the hard part is staying awake for the good parts
been dealing with a cold, so the ny quil was a nice touch
"Take the welder and fab up a mount for a winch, and the 2wd becomes unnecessary"
I agree 100%. Most of us should never go into a situation where we actually need 2wd to get through. I like to look at these (Ural) bikes as a 4wd Truck. Only use the 4wd when you do get stuck and use it only to back out. Remember if you get stuck in 4wd, you are screwed!! :)
I have yet to run into a stuck situation that I could not simply put the bike in reverse and back right out using 1wd. Mind you that I am not Dirt Biking my Ural, but riding back, BACK roads and trails.
Just my mindless rambling!! :) Back to regular scheduled programming.
This was only a Test!!

Cheapest and probably the best way to turn an R75/6 into a sidecar drive bike, in the U.S. would be to buy an untitled "Yuri Special" MT-16 that someone else has given up on and "graft" suitable sections of the BMW frame to the MT frame, (assuming that such a process is legal in your state). Use the BMW engine, get a /2 clutch plate to adapt the MT gearbox, weld "ears" on the MT gearbox to match the BMW bolt holes and replace all the bearings. Add a difflock in the process if you want the best off-road 2WD possible. Far cheaper than a new and probably SH Patrol and has the advantage of full-time 2WD.
