    The last time I inquired about pricing from Mobec (Feb 2019) I received the following response. Pocket change :deal
    The total price for a Duodrive EVO conversion with TR 500 Retro body is from 29.000,-- €

    if you deliver a R 1200 GS.

    It is the complete sidecar rig similar to the pictures with the TR 600.


    With our complex Superdrive system the price is from 90.000,-- € ( without motorcycle ).

    A190E8E4-C58B-475B-960D-3605A344FC7F.jpeg DB. What is the width of your front rim? My tire guy is trying to stretch my 165 to fit the EZS 6”er. The 145 was a absolute no go.

    The website says it will fit a 6 inch. But it also said the 145 would but that wasn’t even close.

    I put a 175 on that rim, I don't think your going to get the VW sizes 145/165/80/15 to work well on those wide rims, Strokers wheels that are meant to work in stock forks are only 3.5" wide.

    If you want some excitement you could mount it with some either and propane torch.

    When you think about it, we put 165's and 175's on the DMC-style 15-inch wheels all the time, and those are 4-inchers. Trying to get that same width tire fit a 6-inch rim? I'm not seeing it.

    That's the old school trick we used off roading in the sand dunes. Airing down to 8 to 12 psi before we had bead-loc wheels could cause the bead to pop if you turned too sharp. Jack it up off the ground, give it squirt of starting fluid inside the tire and flick a match at it. Works like a champ!

    We did try the ratchet strap but that just kinked the tire.
