I don't think it looks round enough to be a Tilbrook, I'll ask him next time I see him.
Says Battlax right there on the sidewall - you can't read it?
That's the bias-ply Bridgestone Battlax BT45 130/80-17. 2nd one. First one got torn to bits on a 105 degree day when I hit some very sharp-edged gravel (also destroyed my rear and side car tires!) This one is doing fine. I've recommended this tire to a number of inmates. Fellow inmate szurszewski who is wandering the country on a big K1200LT-Hannigan rig with a trailer (see Bakery Quest) got 21,000 miles from one on his rig.
I remember talking to you about this on our ride. It don't remember the reason for bias ply vs radial. Was it only for carcass stiffness or something more? Thanks.
Stiffness. That's all. Resists lateral deflection much better than radials.
Here is the new to me Sidecar rig 2003 with less than 1300 miles
Nice looking rig. Congrats
RTE today with the COG group. nice road trip for the new sidecar.
Out in the middle of Chesapeake Bay - in the wind!
Ok - that's officially what I want next :)
I can built for you if you want :)
Like the two wheel drive.
Gancek--I can't believe that this box survives!! Hope there is nothing valuable in there.
Josh, it's really a remarkable rig. Build thread here --
BMW R1200GS + sidecar with drive
@Gancek, would you really be willing to build one for somebody in the U.S.?
That would be fantastic but I'm going to need to save up for a few years (decades?) first. And that's only going to work if I somehow generate an income to save.
Would need to save up enough to come pick it up in Poland as well!
It cost time and money, but yes, I can build another.
Sending to U.S. is for sure possible, this is as well just question of money.
This rig is my first, so now with my expirience, second will be better :)
This is tool box. Truth is that it was fixed to low. It survived but I do not use it any more :)
I offer for sale full set of drive or single parts:
Makes me wish I had a BMW so I could try these out.
