    I've been looking at them at the EGT. They come close to my dream combination. I especially like the ball joints of the sidecar swing arm, much more solid than the more common ball joints. And these car parts are designed to live outdoors.

    Might that be that Zeus with diesel engine? A conversion because he (Ruud, Guus?) does so many miles a diesel was more sensible.

    Could well be Halflive, but wouldn't call that "engine in the sidecar" so I didn't think of a Zeus. That's more "engine behind the bike" :D

    ( Isn't UralDnepr "Sammie" over at our place ? )

    I've got a Motorrad gespanne upstairs with an artikel about that guy with the diesel Zeus. If someone is interested, i can post his name. He is a friend of Bert111 who also owned a Zeus at some moment.

    No, Sammie isn't at my place. I think he would be one of the last people i would invite.

    The Junkyard Dog H-D with Kubota 3 cylinder diesel installed.

    I can't find a pic of the one with an upright big single diesel installed in and driveing the bike from the sidecar.
