    Nice job there AW. I like it. Easy job to reduce the trail by the looks of it, thats if it needs it?

    Thanks!

    Yes, it's relatively easy, but the customer was happy as it was. It rides really nicely and steering is not at all heavy.
    With a heavier sidecar, it can be done with a simple adapter.

    That Hack body looks good on the cruiser. Looks good connected to a sporty machine too.

    I laughed out loud as well, causing the wife to come and check what I was looking at ;)




    Someone on another forum asked for some pics of the MZ with the new Dombo-ears I made from plastic boxlids, might as well post them here.

    They provide great protection from the cold wind up to my shoulders and even keep the wind from my knees :clap

    You must of course understand that is due to the careful calculations for the angle and width of the lids, made in CAD on a computer and only after several designs they came out this perfect

    Okay, okay only a couple of minutes with a burner to bend the plastic and 3 screws per side :D

    Hey Folks,

    I made a post about a new project in Day trippn however a friend recommended I repost something here to the Hack audience. I recently started a project to explore the Central Coast of California (for now) mostly by sidecar and plan to keep a collection of images and videos on a dedicated facebook page. A Facebook account is not required to view only to post a comment. So, please stop on by and take a look and "like" the page if you would like to keep informed about updates.

    Also, I just finished a little teaser video of the a local ride if your interested, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgke3axvzWU

    Thanks, See you out there somewhere.

    Hi Fullbore,
    Nice to see you here. I'm the guy who stumbled onto your youtube video a couple days ago. Keep them coming.
    In keeping with this thread, here's a picture of my last Ural. It was 1996. I'll ge picking up my Gobi in about 2 months.

    Isn't that what the UK outfits look like to us?

    Or is that just how they appear to the Vogons as they approach?
