Got it in the mail today !!!
I just found the same sidecar body. Do you know who made it?
Painted my MZ 301 winterhack "army"gray ( well, actually my wife did, she used to be a painter by trade )
It's a matt grey, just like I wanted it to be:
Kept the front of the "lastenseitenwagen" as it was, with the original logo of the DDR electricitycompany where they used it. It will get a clear coat to protect it.
Had a template made by a militairy garage down the road for the sidepanels:
Should not forget pics of the wife painting the bike
I need to find a little hack for my TS 150!
I wish I could get my wife to paint...
Looks damn good and paint colour likes kind of familiar
Hahaha OMW, I had been thinking of camo, used to have a Chevy K30 in urban Camo but went for the flat grey this time.
Looking for a template of a torpedo or something like that to paint them on the side of the sidecar
Mine on the TLH in 2008.. She survived riding 2200 kms in Labrador in Winter and did it at -61C at one point for two days..
Love this Combo.. Did I mention we left Victoria BC in the dead of winter to make it to Labrador?
Here she is before the trip
Beautiful setup! I really miss my Dakar. Never even thought of hanging a chair from it.
Still one of my favorite ride reports. That ride report also turned me on to the BV2S, best Winter helmet I have ever used for riding the motorcycle in sub zero temperatures, thanks for both.
update: from this...

That is very very cool, in both incarnations.
Sure is ! I like it very much !
When my tires are up for renewal I'll go for knobblies too ( these where bought when I rode it solo )
the thing is that the mz provides pure and limitless fun...
just for the record:
these are 16'' tyres: mitas c-01 3.50-16 (very soft, good for the front) and motoz nhs terrapactor or tractionator or something for the rear end...80/100-16.
the latter last very well at the rear, quite good in snow, but initially very soapy on the road, until they're 50% down...

What variety of fairing-lower-thingy is that? Homebuilt? Does it keep your lower body any warmer/drier for winter/rain riding, or is it primarily a mud guard?
that's a bog standard mz ts250/1 leg-shield, slightly bent o) and yes, and yes o)
wouldn't want to miss it on devon's wet and muddy roads.
for keeping your body snug and warm, there used to be available a special throw-over canvas covering your legs and your lower body. east-german winters were and are cold. o)
btw: this is the aerodynamically superior version:
not quite as good whenthe frost arrives:

And maybe in a year or two
We'll have a little one
She'll look just like you
We'll add on a sidecar
We'll be a trio
The baby makes three, oh ...

I have a "prototype" for these kind of legshields in my shed, been trying to build them last summer but somehow never got round to finishing them ( too many projects ). Shield itself will be diamonsplate I have lying around.
Those canvas coverings are still for sale ( can't find the link on my laptop, must be on my computer upstairs ) but I have asked a friend for a canvas roof off of a Suzuki Samurai to make one myself
I have been seriously considering trying to fit one of those CJ lap aprons to the 400 for the coming winter. I think it's going to be a really rough one this year.
I might just try to build me one o' them thar leg shields, too. :3
One of the service writers at Bob's BMW has these fitted to his commuter. Might be cheaper than fabbing your own.
...talking about mz's - this is matze's es250/2 combo which i like alot:
