Transmission noise

So the more I ride it, the more I notice the noise the transmission in my 68 R50 makes. When the clutch is pulled in, the noise goes away. It sounds like bad bearings or that the transmission is...

I just pieced up a Ural sidecar for my 68 R50/2. I bought the bike with a Velorex 562, but the look of the velorex was a bit of a departure for the bike on the whole.
