    Jialing JH600 sidecar, the People Liberation Army last weapon spotted by the Wife Today in the streets of GuangZhou, capital of GuangDong, South China.

    She tried to take more pics but was stopped by the rider coming back from a secret mission at the local Ikea store.:devildog

    Very nice. The red light in the center gives me an idea. I think I'll mount a white anchor light (boating) in a similar location for vis.

    The sidecar would look better on a BMW F650GS.

    This is indeed a cool hack, it looks strong and well built. I would have loved to test it but the man in green was not too keen for that. After making a rear maneuver (yes it has a rear gear!) he disappeared quickly in the traffic.

    The spare wheel seems to fit for all. It must have a mechanism to adapt quickly the rear sprocket. The tires are nearly flat and look like an hybrid between bike and car tires. I wonder if this is a 1WD or 2WD, no time to check it.

    I'm chinese.I know this sidecar. The sidecar production by Military factories.
    It have 2 type, for Military version and for public version. If you can buy for Military version that you very good luck. It's very good quality.

    What is the difference between the military and the civilian versions besides quality?
