    Thank you Dave.

    Building a new outfit from scratch. Nearly ready for paint.
    Didn't think there would be much interest if I started a thread about it.

    So, who made the body? And yes, a build report would be brilliant.

    I've searched this thread front to back and back to front without finding the bike i know is in there somewhere. :ear
    Would be awesome if someone remembers the bike I'm looking for, and knows where to find it.
    From my memory it was either a Horst Ulrich build or one similar to his. You know that very robust look.
    It had a orange frame and a the tank, sides and fenders were of some darker blue finish. I seem to remember it as a BMW, but not 100% on that. It was BIG.

    I'll be more then grateful if anyone can hel me, cheers!

    There's a big orange framed rig on page 61, but not sure if that's the one you're looking for.

    There is something "just right" about the shape and dimensions of this sidecar. Reminds me a bit of those classic 1930's sports cars.

    Maybe if you took the canoe off the other side you might squeeze a few more mph out of her?
