    Yup. It's a '66 R60/2 with an R75 powerplant that I just mated with a Ural hack

    Honda CB750F Super Sport, which was a handy bike
    in it's time, attached to a sputnick sidecar body on a home made chassis.

    Leading link is also home made.

    This bike beonged to a California racer who used this combo in the Barstow to Vegas and Adelanto races:D.

    Just got her restarted yesterday after a couple of years of sitting idle and plan on a trip up to Willow Springs Raceway for the vintage weekend coming up and then a trip into the mountains above Kernville and Lake Isabella.

    I'll post some photos if anyone is interested

    I'll pack the BBQ and some Rib Eye steaks, maybe a bottle or two of Cabernet.:1drink

    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.

    Thanks, Chef

    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.

    1. mobec doesn't export to the US
    2. mobec pricing.... $50,000.00 USD minimum NOT INCLUDING THE BIKE
    so....
    for all practical purposes
    "UNOBTAINIUM"

    BY THE WAY.....
    we've ALL lusted over MOBEC's products...
    they are incredible
    wish i could see them in person

    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.

    I like it. How much ground clearance does it have? The skid plate makes the car look like a rocket waiting to launch.
