    Remember the outdoor welding in this thread? Uwe (KNEPTA) welding a fender with one battery. Pics by Robert (UNIMOG).

    Up until today I figured every Velorex car was UGLY.

    Yours is beautiful!

    Maybe I’m just a strange guy and look at a sidecar in a different way. Beyond the perfect paint job. :D <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Good job. I like the sidecar wheel and disk brake conversion (BMW front wheel) on the Ural frame and the Smart wheel in the rear of the bike, as well as the trail reducer in the front. (home made?) What is with the exhaust? Had some problems? <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Or is it just the pic, since it’s a bit small to see details. Any pics of the mounts? <o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    Is that a 3.50-19 <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:place>Avon</st1:place> sidecar tire in the front and on the hack? Low speed index, you know.<o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    I bet you don’t see a lot of outfits like yours in CZ.<o:p></o:p>

    The original exhaust was too big and was in the way of the subframe. So it was replaced by 1150 silencer plus simple pipe between silencer and front part of exhaust system. It is a bit lauder than standard 1100GS.

    Yes on the front and sidecar wheel is Avon sidecar tire. I do not care about the speed limit since I do not drive fast. At the begin (when the tires were brand new) it was hard to keep the sidecar in the way where I wanted it to ride. But after few hunderts of kilometers the tires got little bit worn and they are OK now.

    Yes, Richard, there is not many sidecars on Czech streets.

    I believe that the subframe is bullet proof...

    That rig looks amazing. Did you build it yourself?

    I only wish I was capable of building it -- it was put together by Dauntless in Washington.
    It's quite light handling yet it seems pretty stable when I ride it on pavement. Overall, I'm very happy with it.

    @ Tychoendo,

    I like that. I have been pondering my mind what bike to use to build a light offroad combo and the G650XC crossed my mind. Have you ridden it with a passenger, i.e. can it tow the weight at climbs a.s.o ? Secondly has the trail been altered? I can't see toomuch detail of the front end.

    Mmmm. Details. :wink: Let me think. <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City><st1:place>Aschaffenburg</st1:place></st1:City> license plates on the pic. Well, that’s close enough to <st1:place>Frankfurt</st1:place>. EML-chassis, EML-chair and EML-front-swingarm. Typical eighties, beginning nineties dual-sport outfit. Several parts of different origin. Rear swingarm (extended?) by Horst Ullrich. Rear wheel and sidecar wheel from a Citroën 2CV. Bilstein shocks. (maybe even air suspension on the hack for heavy loading).<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Obviously a trailerhook, trailerhook, trailerhook..... :scratch<o:p></o:p>

    Got it. I knew I made a pic of this outfit.

    Hey Richard, about the welding one question; they didn't get problems with the
    eyes? Okay, this welding I saw, like to wear yellow glases, but when you weld
    in the normal way, you can hurt your eyes. That's not funny, many miles far
    far away from home . . .

    The electric arc was not that bright. I was standing right next to Uwe. We had no welding shield there :D

    G/day Richard.

    That wouldn't be one of your outfits would it?

    If it is, what a small world we live in:D

    The photo's were sent to me from a mate of mind, Wolfie Loher, works for Lufthansa in Frankfurt, and regularly comes to Oz. He is lucky enough to have a GS here in Oz.

    He also sent a photo of this outfit

    I missed a few other outfits, sorry about that, but my excuse was that it was my birthday and I had a few celebratory drinks:wink::wink:

    As you can see, the weather wasn't the best, it rain on and off all weekend and not a great turn up, no doubt due the weather and that there was another big 40th Anniversay rally on the same weekend.
