    Love the minimalist look - pure / the essence of a boxer you've captured - and yes it's patina is grand :clap

    A great looking custom, it looks nicely done and fully capable of being ridden every day.

    You talking about an offroadish aussie camping type sidecar or conventional rocket shaped one? I have pondered often about making one but figured the girls will be too old soon to be seen in one & the dog isn't really into sticking her nose out the window of the car so may not appreciate it.
    Don't ya really have to change to a leading link front end etc?

    Yeah haven't really decided but likely to be similar to a Ural/Dnepr one.

    It seems I have to right click on the image - view image and then copy the url from the address bar. Wierd!
    Thanks Padmei. And yes I can make you a rear subframe and seat base if you'd like one. I'm making a twin shock one at the moment, I've made mono shock road bike ones like this;

    And you've seen the one on my GS.

    Ok keep that stuff away from me - looking tooo good.

    Can you take your camera to the rockers thing & take some good snaps for us please?
    Not interested in flashy original bikes but the hectic, eclectic & epileptic styles. There'll be a choccy fish in it for you.

    Amazing the transformation an abbreviated seat, guard and change of rear light make to R80 or R100 mono. Can benefit from a few other changes but the rear end change alone completely changes the character of the bike. Other changes are cheap too, paint on wheels pref black and some other paint here and there, handle bars of your choice and bin the engine bars, IMO. I look at R80 monos as they come up for sale and still go thru the whole exercise of "do I of not? " Got part way there once with a cheap ex mot bike, started selling the surplus bits and got carried away, there was a good market for parts. Whole bike took no time to sell for some good unintended profit. I just bought another G/S with the $........
