Taken at collumpton,Culm vale sidecar weekend
Triumph 1600 and EZS Munroe
This afternoon Steve and Verena, some friends of mine from Germany, came over for a visit. It was a very nice afternoon. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Ive showed some pics of their new sidecar outfit before last November:
I took some more shots today, when they left, although evening sun was fighting the camera.
This 1800 Goldwing was built according to the Trisis concept of Uwe Schmidt Gespannbau, but keeping the original Goldwing drive in stead of using the Trisis frame in the rear.
An extra fuel tank is built in the right side case. For chair the Hedingham Roke was used and both upholstering of the sidecar and the seat of the bike (making it look less Goldwing-like) was made completely new (very nice structure) in order to match. Of course theres the change of the front but thats obvious.
Why Im showing you this?
Look for the diagonal struts. No, theyre not there and thats strange for an outfit of this size. Im used to seeing that only with a Vespa 200 Squire outfit. And this is not a leaner either.
So they left for the Autobahn, a cruising speed of 100 MpH is possible. Steering is light, the brakes with ABS are still integral, also on the sidecar.
BTW: Verena at the moment is having her CB1300 Honda built to become an outfit with the Trisis concept. This will be easier because of the chain drive. Im pretty curious about it.
Sidecar In Brussels - Belgium
Sidecar in Northern Ireland
Just finished this one for a customer, think it looks great!
Not so sure you would have liked to even hear the price. I know I wouldn't.
500 miles on top rebuild. Darn I shoulda replaced those valve springs!
Exhaust Valve VS Piston and both lost.
30 miles from a functioning phone, 3.5 hours later our rescue arrives.
First time in my 40 year riding career that I couldn't repair a bike on the road side.... ...Oh well my wife didn't really want to sleep on the ground anyway.
The old Mongrel will be back on the road soon!
The "sidecar in Nothern Ireland" above is mine. Will look slightly different in a week or two though as about to fit some Wasp leading link forks to it.
are installing the forks yourself?,if so lets have an installation thread with pics,
or are you riding to see Robin at his workshop?,either way pics please mate,
a friend of mine has a Cali/Charnwood Royal with EZS forks and he loves it,the chair you have is one of my fav's
this pic taken at the EGT acouple of years ago
Fitting the forks myself so will try and remember to take piccys. Your mates Oxford looks nice and very modified. I'd be interested to see what he has done to the suspension on the sidecar as that looks very non-standard.
Barley and me in our 2007 R1200GS - Hannigan rig somewhere in central Ontario this year.
I do like those sidecars, there was one in Vermont at the U.S.C.A. national.
OK, let´s walk around this one. Dutch Theo Lamers Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 Special with Swiss Armec Tremola I and German Mobec Easy Drive a.k.a. Aktiv Lenk System. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
Since Moto Guzzi always used Brembo´s and also was the first company with a Combined Brake System, this outfit also has a combined system with two Brembo brakes on the hack. <o></o>
16 wheels all around. Matt black just seems to be the right color for this outfit.
Did ARMEC do that double A Frame front end?
Yeah, Richard! You never seem to let us down. The pics of all these fine rigs just keep coming!
What a great looking bike:eek1 ,and im not a fan of Guzzi's
shame about the silly exhaust though. The front end is way OTT,i can appriciate very much the engineering that has gone into it and im sure it works very well,but for me its too much,nice pics Dutch
Edit to add,maybe it would look better if the chair was as long as the bike,the front end looks to protrude too much.
The double A Frame front end (EasyDrive) is from MOBEC
