Good to see you made it, Dan.
Hope you gain plenty from being here on ADV Hacks.
The motorcycle is a Dnepr, not a Ural. The engine is a post '81 R-series engine. Judging by the carburettors i would say an R80, 800cc engine. But there are also R100 bikes with these carburettors.
Look at the engine number, you can use it to figure out which motor it is.
Not many people like the look of the R1200CL, but I think a sidecar helps it to make friends!
Just spent a very chilly morning training the new owner, his first sidecar experience and one that he enjoyed immensely. Another convert!
Yes, it's on the RIGHT side!
No, Agent. It's on the left side.
No, no, no! That's not the right side, that's the wrong side!
Nice job there AW. I like it. Easy job to reduce the trail by the looks of it, thats if it needs it?
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.
You crafty boy, Drone!
Here's the same bike, fitted to suit the Aussies:
That Hack body looks good on the cruiser. Looks good connected to a sporty machine too.
Thanks for the smiles on that aussie pic,I had a hard day !!.
Desert and asphalt nomads.
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
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
Did you get the little allen key from IKEA when fitting your flatpack fairing components ?
Indeed they are from the "Slugis"boxes
Had to try out the new "K-Block" tires last weekend.....man, we haul way too much crap....
Pretty good winds. Managed to get about 23.5 mpg.
I think the navigator was having a good time...bought her a GPS to play with.
Wandering off on a 7 - 10 camping ride next week.... Death Valley then who knows where.
Finally picked up my hack.....I am gonna get it on once the weather gets a bit nicer.
So the tug is gonna be my 2001 Intruder 1500...... 1st time sidecar for me.....
