    I've been a bit concerned about the flat rack you have behind the small of your back..........wouldn't want to get hit from behind, eh..........???

    Rack behind the seat is gone for now.
    I'm building a new "solo" seat with a small rack behind it.

    There yer go..... Alloy even less forgiveing...

    The sceen on my dirt bike is 2mm lexan "polycarbanate"
    With a slight curve to give it strength for the air pressure..
    But can still flex/bend if hit... Would still hurt like hell but
    has less chance of doing damage to you than what perspex or alloy would...

    NICE looking unit. Everything I've seen from DMC looks very good. What extras did you get that we can't see ?

    Question, is the "sidecar" wheel driven ? If so, who controls it ?
    Regardless, it's still Brilliant !

    I can see a gray cable running from the forward upper mount. I expect it to be an Hondamatic with a double trottle cable

    I was out for a ride today on my 1972 R75/5/Dnepr. Been having some carburator issues, and just changed the rear tire. It is doing really well for a 40 year old.
