    Those bikes are breathtaking! I’m planning to buy an older black bike with side car. I liked that black R with Steib sidecar.

    :eek1 Do you have any front suspension travel? I see the fork brace is compressing the gaiters some but wow.

    Also, is that an Ural tub on a Velorex frame?

    Sounds if you are pulling my leg.
    In the other case: these events are known as "Jumbo run" after the original event in England.
    We gather together as sidecar drivers and take a passenger on board from a local institution. These can be children with down syndrome, but also young adults who suffered brain injury.
    This Beatrixrun and the Zeelandia run (i'll post pictures) of next weekend acquire a year of organization from local volunteers. we sidecarrists just respond to the invitation and spend a day and some gallons of gasoline.
    The joy is a great day driving, having lunch together and having fun with the fellow sidecarrists and the children.
    The run next weekend is to far from my home so i'll be camping, also organized by those volunteers.
    If you are pulling my leg, yes i'm also mentally challenged :evil

    Add 1 part /7 frame. a R90 engine bored to 1000cc, R65 swingarm, a 450 watt alternator, and most of a 72 R75/5, then throw on a 1970's Globe sidecar and this is what you come out with.........

    Love it! There's one of those Beemers with the "toaster" tank near me that a great older gentleman owns... He "thinks" he "may" sell it "someday".... Meanwhile, patience....
