Was that Mike Braverman's rig?
That's right, this outfit used to belong to Mike Braverman.
I bought it from him about 3 years ago but it had a bad charging system and i parked it while i got on with other projects.
New stator and coils and all seems well, plus the usual carb cleaning, brakes and filters.I'll be able to tell better on Thursday when i take it out for a ride.
Mike used the bike to race the Barstow to Vegas and also the Adelanto GP, two races that i know of. I'm sure there were plenty more.
If you know more about the history of the bike i would be very interested to hear it, or see any photos that may be out there.
To me thats what sidecars are all about !!.
Nice CBX outfit I saw yesterday on a local charity run. Didn't manage to catch up with the owner but it looked very well sorted.
i am new here and doing my research on the side car i am either gonna buy, get build or partially build myself hopefully by this summer. my question, can this set up from Mobec get imported to the USA, can i get just the duo drive and the frame, do you know if it will attached to a bmw r100gs? how much?
are there other duo drive available other than Mobec?
this is a great thread for a newby like me ........... thanks
1. mobec doesn't export to the US
2. mobec pricing.... $50,000.00 USD minimum NOT INCLUDING THE BIKE
for all practical purposes
BY THE WAY.....
we've ALL lusted over MOBEC's products...
they are incredible
wish i could see them in person
edit: Welcome to the Asylum, nulla.
i've had a few "damp" dreams where i was riding the hell out of my MOBEC HACK at STELVIO...
Very, very, very, very tasty combo
Not sure how much of a n00b you are, but of course Ural makes a "duo drive". (This may fall into the "Duh!" category.) In fact, most of the Ural guys on here have one model or another of the two-wheel drive Ural.
sorry yes i did know about the dnepr and the ural.
Here is a recent pic of my rig with some new mods.
I like it. How much ground clearance does it have? The skid plate makes the car look like a rocket waiting to launch.
I was rolling well as long as I kept the momentum up. I came around the corner to see my mate had lost his front end in the sand. I stopped and then had trouble getting moving again.
We got weight over the rear which helped the drive wheel bite through the sand but I skewed sideways on the track. We pushed it backwards off track enough for me to get a run across the track and through the scrub on the other side.
That got me around the 50 metres of deep sand.
The outfit went well that weekend. A lot of the country was similar to the pictures. I didn't drop tyre pressures (rear car tyre 32 psi and front and chair tyres were on 34 psi) and this was the only time I had an issue.
A very nice looking sidecar on a camping trip last weekend.
The outfit belonged to a young lady fairly new to sidecars. The dog was ok too.
Great spot on the Murray River, sometimes the site of the Victorian sidecar rally.
I have about 12-14 inches of ground clearence.
Should go really well when the pressures are dropped. S'pose you can get A/T and M/T for that fat Suzuki arse too!
It looks like the front forks are collapsed quite a bit?
In our trip going south, Mexico 2011
They are !!.I have new front AND rear springs in the mail !!.I lost over 1/2 of my suspension travel by just bolting the car on !!.Vstroms have AWFUL suspension,solo it wasn't to bad but with a car it's REALLY bad !!.
