I thought one's first post was supposed to be something breast-related down in JM.

Those "fender suport thingies" to which you refer (always thought the word support had two pps?) have extra large grab handles so that two men can move one of these onboard a retrieval vehicle.

Don't know if THAT information is in this book:

buying in China

I asked a similar question about buying a bike in China and riding it back on HU and got something to think about. If you go ahead keep me informed about how it went. I do not know about Ireland but in the UK we cannot register bikes with a right hand sidecar manufactured after 1981, although there are ways around that of course.

Ask about the MOT if you try most of the "ways round". A trike makes three tracks in the snow, one that makes two fails the MOT. A lot of welding or overstamping round the frame and engine numbers gets you an MOT fail and a call from your local vehicle crime squad who'll ask you how many other ringers you have and if your insurance is happy with your modified bike.

The only safe way to keep a post 1981 outfit on the road in the UK is to mount the chair on the left.

Thanks Mark - we're usually the same in Ireland in most things regarding motorcycle regulations (except we have the 33BHP restriction for the first two years of our license, but without the option of a direct access course). I'll have a look into it though, who knows.

Have a search about on the CJ Web-sites. There ARE some builds produced with Left-mounted "boats". A significant number end up in SA, which drives on the Left:

I am a little bit surprised at the moment that the Chang Jiang is advertised as a copy of WW II motorbike BMW R75. In fact it is a copy of BMW R71 which was produced from the early 1930ies until 1938 when BMW was ordered to stop the production of civilian motorbikes (including R71) and to concentrate on the production of military motorbikes such as the R75.

The BMW R71 was a pure civilian motorbike developed and produced in a time when Germany still accepted the restrictions of the Versailles Treat (after WW I) not to produce any military equipment.

The construction plans for the R71 went to Sowjet Union beginning of the 1940ies, most likely as a part of the Hitler-Stalin Treat although this is not really clear how they came to SU. In SU the motorbike was produced under the name M72 (No - "M" ist not the abbreviation of the SU Foreign Minister Molotov who signed the Hitler-Stalin Treat in the Name of SU but for the Russian word мотоцикл (motozikl) = motorbike). Later the SU government forwarded the plans to their socialist brothers in China.

In 1938 German government ordered German motorcycle producers to develop a pure military motorbike according to very detailed technical specifications. BMW tried to improve the R71 according to these specifications whilst German motorbike producer Zündapp developed a brand new motorbike, Zündapp KS750.

Zündapp won the competition and was awarded with the contract of the German government and BMW was ordered to produce the Zündapp KS 750 in BMW factories in license what they did under the name BMW R75.

Comparing BMW R75 and R71 but also M72 and Chang Jiang you can see that the concepts are totally different. The frame, the front fork etc. What they all make look similar is the characteristic look of the 2-cylinders boxer engine and the sidecar - and that´s it. Technically we are talking about different worlds.

Kind regards from Kabul
