since my last couple of rides where all solo-bikes






i decided to do a sidecar again

plan is to have the rig running on 16" rims all around (instead of the standard 19" rims) with some other gimmicks to give it a WW2 look-al-like setup

for anything else i'll have to see which other ideas i get

so far the wheels are laced and painted





will use knobbies to give it a beefy and off-roading look - think will look cool with the combination of the vintage overall look



overal paint will be desert-tan as can be seen at the wheels already

mockup is almost done - just need to add the donuts to decide the postion of fenders and some other small stuff ...

hope to be ready for disassy by weekend to go for sandblasting and basecoat within the next 2 weeks



maybe i do kind of Bobber/Chopper setup with the possibility to easy shift to a wartime beemer copy to take part on reenactment events or so???

will keep you updated ...

greetz from china!

the 16 inchers are on

got the look i wanted with those knobbies

still i'm not 100% sure where the whole project is heading to

if i get towards another bobber i will - off course remove the sidecar-fender again and replace with a smaller one







will need to play around a bit with some different layouts to come to a final decision concerning how the final ride should look like

Lots of builds based on russian/chinese boxers are plain ugly but yours are truly good looking. Basically I'm a Stock-man but builds like these can make me change my mind.

TX for the positive feedback!

tyres are local chnese made - size 5.00 x 16 usually used on 4x4's

i have my doubts these rubbers are road-legal somewhere else than in china

on my other bikes i run shinko's and avon's but none of the has such a knobby rough looking thread like the chinese donuts

meanwhile i'm preparing for the paintshop ...

to be open to shift inbetween a bobber-version and a more standard version i worked on 2 sets:

Standard:
1 standard-fender tailfender - standard lights - and fully standard sidecar bucket for a mil-version

custom:
1 customfender for each sidecar and bike (chopped with short skirts) - custom front and taillights

plan ist to connect the electrical components with plugs to easy shift
have to see wether it works or not

that's the chopped tailfender for the bike


here is the standard fender for the bucket


here the chopped version


if i get the parts for final paint into the booth i might start assy before new years eve

will keep ya updated

check my new facebook page with lot of pictures of my other projects

didn't write anything since some time

currently working on the sidecar bucket

this is how the standard bucket looks like



this is as far as i got:

"Jesus Bar" removed - sidedoor closed - ass "bobbed":


looking for a bomber- or bucket seat for the sidecar but difficult ot find

got some seats offered obviously out of a fighterjet - but too bulky and too expensive




will keep ya posted

Lookin good ! I have a idea. Why don't you make a tubular seat frame looking like a jet seat but fits? That would be cool!
