    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.

    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.

    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:

    Nothing like having a faithful co pilot to allow for the mileage to build up. Good for the both of you...:clap:clap:clap

    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.
