Have a look on Instagram at gustomotorbikes. He is in Portugal and he makes them. And he speaks English.

I ride a solo in the summer, but the roads round here are so bad, mud, water, cow muck that during the winter its downright dangerous to ride a solo. Out comes the other bike Ural M66 with BMW R65 engine and sidecar and I dont fall off, can take my time, enjoy some green lanes and still ride a bike. Huge grin factor and always get people wanting to chat and asking where the machine gun is! And my son comes with me so we take turns to ride the bike and the sidecar. :)

hi welcome Draperg

I hate being in the box, but an outfit is FUN.

I wish I had another one, I'd swap the K in a moment, and possibly the R after a few minutes thought, assuming that the combo was fit to go, I'd even have another 350 Jawa, cos the last one was so much Slow fun, well worth the 37 quid it cost me!

This is a very interesting subject that's popped up.
I've always wanted to have a sidecar unit, and just recently the interest as strengthened, I'd love to do one, I have a R80RT stripped back to naked, I'd love to put one on that, but to be honest, unfortunately I wouldn't know were to start.
I'm an engineer, so I'm quite capable of making, fabricating and welding parts, although I would like to just buy one, and just do a small amount of work on it if possible.
Is there anyone on here that can give me some tips ? plus, if anyone on here as an outfit of any sort, I'd love to see some pictures.

Hi
someone I know, much better at this sort of thing than I will ever be, started with an R80R and a ural type sidecar

You are starting from a good place with an R80RT, lower geared than the 100, Im told easy to upgrade to 100 but not needed, twin disc?

You could buy a cheap Russian project outfit Ural, Nevel, Cossack and just move the chair over, http://simplysidecars.co.uk/fittingguide.html have the clamps. Then sell the bike on.

I think Dacsceilings is the guy to ask. He runs one and I think he has a spare chassis.

Hi
http://www.f2motorcycles.ltd.uk/specials.html Weld On frame fittings for Ural/Dnepr Sidecars Part - SO2712 £36.00

Set of four factory weldon fittings. two to take the ball clamps from a standard Ural or Dnepr sidecar and two to take eyebolts from Ural. They can be cut or altered to your needs and welded to clamps or direct to your frame. You need to tell them the sidecar will be fitted to the left of the bike.

Get the sidecar, put the bike lamps into the chair fittings and they will automatically be lined up to attach to the bike frame.

Mjolinor and Dacsceilings what is the spare chassis?

I dunno and Dacceilings is a tad busy at the moment, you would be better served sending him a PM I think.

Another fine little score you've gotten me into!
A neighbour was moving house and needed the base of a garden gazebo dismantling and clearing.
Needless to say I was very happy to oblige and after a couple of hours work it was all unscrewed.
This was the second load of 2x6s of 4.5m. Raised veg beds now sorted!

Ah! The familiar issue and well covered off in the replies to this. When I find out how to put pix of my outfit on here I will. One off super sport road outfit designed by my son who works for Tesla and built over three years by two engineers in UK. Blacktop Restorations and Lumley Engineering. I will start a new topic when sorted out pix. Cheers.

You can post an image direct to the forum by clicking the 'Attachments' tab which appears in the 'POST A REPLY' page. If you want to do it in a new post, you'll need to go into the 'Full editor and preview' page (button at the bottom of the short entry page). This will only work, though, for quite small images (in terms of pixels that is.

It is possible to attach any image to a post by using an image hosting service... I use 'ImgBB' but there are numerous others, most are free to use for a limited number of images. If you sign up to one of these, you can upload your image and get a link URL (embed code) suitable for Forums (the none to go for is the one called something like 'BBCode Full'). Copy the link and post it into your post on the forum and, abracadabra, the image will appear when the post is opened.

Hi George
I so get your twitch. After commuting from Worcs to London frequently on a GL1500 I eventually sold it and the twitch got me. So I went up to Charnwood Classics in Coalville and saw Jim D’Arcy. He showed me a handful of classic outfits but what caught my eye was a Suzuki ‘Busa with his Super Sport Sidecar based on a Watsonian ‘hull’ and chassis with professional paint in Suzuki team racing ‘eagle’ design. “What’s the least you’ll take for that says I”. “11,250 pounds” says he. Went home. Just then an endowment policy matured which was destined for mortgage repayment. To my missus: “Can I spend this on an outfit?” “Yes!” Brilliant!! What a girl. Sadly the solo urge got me again and I let it go for a Fazer Thou. The rot-turned-addiction all started back in the 60’s while at Liverpool Uni and I wanted to go sand racing. To get the Velo to the beach at Wallasey I got a very tired Ariel Red Hunter with platform. Did the job a treat.
Time to scratch …..?
Hope so…
Cheers
