Thanks, I appreciate it. The fairing is an old Firth Design Group Piranha; mid 1970s.

Set up

Set-up:



It’s a 2002 BMW 1150 GS with a chair of SchŲne LiniŽ (Nice Lines) from Germany. Attachments are from Motek. The front swing-arm is a prototype of the single arm leading-link from Mobec with MCC Smart bearings with adaptors and some improvements. It also has the Duo-Drive from Mobec. (two-wheel drive connected with shafts from VW Golf, and a VW Syncro (or Audi) viscous coupling and a wet chain-box). The visco-drive gives 15 - 20% power all the time on the sidecarwheel, but depending on wheelslip and throttle position it can fully lock up tot 100%). Wheels all are 4 J front wheels of the Mercedes MCC Smart. I also had wider rims and tyres, but didn’t like that. Wheels fit everywhere and therefore I mostly ride with the Conti Wintercontact wintertyres, since they can be fitted in either direction. It’s really easy to get the snowchains on these very cheap wheels. Furthermore there are some parts from Wunderlich and Touratech on it. Sidecar shocks are from Bilstein. Front Wilbers, Back Technoflex improved Wilbers. Brakes are from the K100S. Other items are home built improvements. Remus exhaust (no kat) and some minor jobs on the engine. I estimate over 50 Hp at the wheel (on both wheels), but that’s a guess because ofcourse it’s impossible to measure that. I bought it second-hand two years ago and it was imported from Germany into the Netherlands. I’m still improving it. It’s not a full-speed off-road hack (very heavy) but more like a tractor or a Unimog. It just takes you everywere. Even with a trailer behind it. Certainly in comparison with the other hacks I used to have. Even with a trailer behind it. It’s pretty heavy, but 105 Mph or 170 Kmh fully loaded on the German Autobahn is possible.



@ Hogwild, it’s a recovered tyre, size 155 / 15 (not for highway use) and with the knobs a lot higher than the 145/65-15 winter- and summertyres I have and tyres like these you therefore can get in all sizes and depending on the width of the tyre you have 2 up to 5 rows of knobs. This particular one is pretty soft. Good in deep mud and sand, but you wear them out fast on harder grounds. I got them from a shop nearby, where they build dune buggy type autocross cars. I believe it’s an imitation of the “Cross 1” by Immler tyres from Germany,where the Immler brothers recover and make special tyres, which also were used in the “Dakar” as you probably allready know. I can put in some internetlinks, but am not sure if that’s allowed.



That’s it for now. Excuse me for my probably bad english, but as you have understood by now, I’m Dutch.




Any questions, just fire them at me.

No questions...but much admiration. That is an incredible bike.

VERY VERY NICE RIG!!
We built a single sided swingarm leading link a while back and it worked well. I was not happy with the pivot bearing setup and removed it from the bike due to that. Hope to get back onto it soon. Sure is a nice feature as far as being able to rotate tires etc etc. Ours used 165r15 tires all around and was more street focused.

i'm loving your rig, Richard!

I love that snow shot! Makes me miss Colorado, where I grew up, now stuck in New Jersey....
I've been looking a bit more at this forum, as I'd love to get a sidecar setup so I could introduce the offspring to the fun.

There are no parts of VMC on it, Mr. Wolverson.

Here’s another “Adventure Hack” I would like to show you all.

In Octobre last year (2007) I was visiting Horst Ullrich’s shop and took this pic. The birth of a new Adventure Hack.





This spring (April) I saw the result. The pictures below were made at a sidecar meeting in Germany.

Here on the left side (I’m not that small, the bike is just huge).





The right side:





Front view:





Rear view:





The engine is of a MZ 1000. Horst Ullrich is the builder. He’s the guy in the red suit on the rear view picture. He’s made more world-travel-hacks and was involved in the building of a couple “Dakar-outfits”. He has his own ideas and nothing changes that. Customer wishes? Forget it if it does not comply with his ideas of a proper sidecar. I like him.

The bike was amazingly silent. I think we all would drill some holes in the exhaust. It gets however more and more difficult here (Europe and especially Germany) to get these kind of bikes streetlegal because of the environmental demands and sound issues.


Hope you liked it and yes, I allready had a hearcut .....

This confirms my suspicions that the Dutch are completely insane.

I love it
