    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?

    Here's a question to ponder.
    This vehicle has the front wheel in line with one of the rear. I does not have any wheel lead on the wheel that's not inline with the front. The motor is in the area that would be the cargo area if it was a sidecar.
    So trike or sidecar ?
