that's a LL on the front, right? where's the shocks? I can't see them in the pic.
Now that is a little different.
I wonder how well the front shock setup works.
I followed the like to the magazine article, but I can’t read Italian. I wonder how he did the 2wd, I didn’t see any pics of it. Gives me inspiration for the Zook!
Article says it’s now a 1250cc with pneumatic actuator chain drive that can be activated at any speed.
But , How he do dat?
Here's the sidecar wheel drive , Part "A'. Notice the engine sprocket cover is doubled up with a lower cover ? I think there's a second , very short chain driving a sprocket on a take - off shaft that runs across all the way to the sidecars swinging arm where another set of sprockets and chain transfers the power to the chair wheel.
Just under the muffler you can see the chair's chain and rear sprocket.
S&S X-Wedge motor. not a hog clone in the least.
So he runs a jack shaft under the bike, cool. I wonder how he does the pneumatic engagement. Maybe a clutch pack someplace?
Good shot of the LL mono shock . Pull rods connected to the rear of the swinger at bottom and link at top act directly on the shock.
Looks pretty simple actually. But he did have to move the radiator to make room. Or is it an oil cooler. I don’t know if this is a oil boiler Suzuki or a liquid cooled engine.

Not sure if 205, but I was watching an episode of Jay leno's Garage (Merlin Engine) and saw a Ural in the background. A little searching showed up this:
My New sidecar, I've had this bike since 2000, time to accessorize!
The rig, and the copilot, have accumulated over 44,000 miles in the past 3.5 years.
Nothing like having a faithful co pilot to allow for the mileage to build up. Good for the both of you...

Riding was good in central ID, today. Photo near 45th Parallel, north of New Meadows, hwy 95.
Same sidecar but different bike.
That's a way cool lookin side car.
Thanks for posting Doug. Refreshing to see a rig that isn’t limited to the slow lane. This forum has been getting a little too Ural centric to keep my interest much longer. Maybe your post will get a few more folks interested in exploring the other end of the bell curve.
It's a touring machine also , did a 12,639 mile trip West a couple of years ago (all beautiful back roads). Camped out about 1/2 the time and met so many friendly, helpful people along the way.
