    Hey Bernard
    yep, they are in my garage. I sent you an email when I got them, and then got busy finishing the bike, & forgot to send another, as I didnt get a reply.
    Sorry about that, but look at the bright side, they wont wear out while in my shop :D

    Of course i have said it because of radiation worries (It may kill, no doubt), and because it else may cause him REALLY BIG problem with helth, and with our environmental laws ( Court, Jail, etc. you know...). And this can cause break of his trip shedule... :Here in Ukraine we have no superstition about dead, or sacred areas etc... And of course Chernobyl is in a restricted (because of radiation) area today and next 300 years(Decontamination period)... I think that the old sidecar does not worth those problems... (Imagine: Man slowly dying of radiation in the jail, instead of fun riding round the world). Without any jokes.

    No worries, I am keeping myself busy with another project. Maybe you can deliver them on your trip to Africa next year in your radio active side car :D

    Looking forward to following your adventures.

    I didn't mean the question as a joke. I didn't know.... To me that particular sidecar would be a very cool thing to have. A similar sidecar would be OK but that particular one would be special just because of where it is from... Of course you are correct in that it would be foolish to get if it cannot be made relatively safe. I do not know what it would take to decontaminate it but just riding a motorcycle isn't 100% safe so I can understand trying to overcome some problems to get it.

    Here in the USA there is the saying that "One mans trash is another mans treasure"

    However I have also seen some pretty strange things that the local people thought of as monuments.

    The swing arm on that is pretty trick. Not so sure about the chain tensioner though...

    Scotland, wonderful biking when it's dry (rarely)
    trick but steel would be better in the back end of Siberia where just about anyone could weld it. You're right about the chain tensioner, it looks a bit vulnerable for an off road bike.
