Had a spare one of these in bits so decided to fix up and spray. Again missing panniers and exhaust along with handle bar grips. Got the idea from other pictures i found of this and wuite liked the look of them.

Looking good. Is it possible to switch the sidecar to the other side as in Germany they are always on the right cos they drive on the other side of the road? Smile

I wanted to but the bracket is broke that screws them together on side that stops me swapping them over as the sidecar would wobble.

If I get my hands on a spare bracket from somewhere I will swap them.

That looks fantastic mate!! For the handle grips could you not wind a few revolutions of black electrical tape round the ends? Just an idea..

fonnezz its a 2 part epoxy that looks like plasticine , mix it together It takes hours to set so you can really work with it , but when it does set its as hard as rock . but you can saw or sand it to shape . most model shops have it , its very handy
