    Looks like a one-off to me.
    I imagine that box is full of lead shot.

    Mike's XS650 Hooligagan hack - he used a GoldWing windshield for the nose and a plywood platform atop an old Velorex/Jawa sidecar chassis

    Jay at Dauntless put this one together for me and then went on to build several other very nice Tiger based outfits. THis is my favorite rig so far! It was a thrill to ride 100 mph in the desert and it would slab all day at 80 and plunge off into the woods to do offroad when I got where I wanted to play. I did my first dualsport rallies with this bike. Amy and I took it camping and saw some wonderful, remote places.

    Yep, I like it too, especially in these colors and with this specific bike.

    <o:p>It’s a Kali Kr 1 Oneseater. The windshield (very important detail I think) on the Guzzi rig is a one-of-a-kind., but can be rebuilt.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    It’s in fact the same as this one on a Kawa Drifter:

    There’s also a Twoseater, the Kali Kr 2, here first on a beemer and then on a Guzzi:

    <o:p>Here’s an older restaured one:

    <o:p>New still available. The one-seater chair fits also on a Velorex frame.

    Amazing what a paint job can do!
    I get the feeling that no one is importing that to the 'States.
    Interesting how it flares out for more foot room.

    Wow. That's an extra wide track, isn't it?
    Seeing as it's a quick detach unit, did you change the front end geometry at all?

    looks wider than it was because of the platform and the short wheelbase. The chassis was a Ural with a Honda Civic hub and Yugo wheel replacing the OEM axle and wheel.

    It was wrecked(by a freind) not long after I got it running so Ididn't get around to painting it or dicking with the steering geometry.

    It steered pretty heavily, but didn't hunt or wobble and was flat stable in turns. Because it was short and relatively wide, it would pivot and I could use throttle or front brake to turn quickly, rather than needing to rely soley on pushing the handlebars around, and that reduced the impact of heavysteering input.

    Eh Up, Good to hear from you!

    Still getting used to a new PC. I actually found this site googleing various other sites to get the links I lost with the old box! I'll find better pictures once I've got my head round it.

    Had to google the the anti-spam question about that Anthony Perkins film too. Guess I should get out more !

    Strangely enough, you can start here! :

    http://www.sidecartrials.com/

    Not a lot of dedicated sites I think, although the "regular" trials sites also have some info.
