I hate to say it boys, but I think Mouse has pimped us and left us hangin'.

Any of you folks in England and can look Mr. Mouse up and let him know what his karma is worth right about now?

Sunken sidecar of doom.

Hiya, Just where in Wales is the river bank with this sidecar? I live in England, but I deliver goods to South Wales at least once a week, sometimes with an empty van on the return journey.

Regards..........Johnny W.

I found it!

Thanks _Mouse_ for the challenging tips in your first post. You gave us JUST enough to work with! Your "58" address, aarrgghh, was the clincher. Had to be close to there! Here are the GPS coordinates where it was: 51° 35' 12.90" N, -2° 59' 28.40" W. That's 1.2 miles South (down river) of the M4 in Newport, South Wales. Map LINK

That thing has been completely under water most of the time.

This aerial photo shows the location, though the rig is not visible here due to high tide.




After I dug it up and did a bunch of cleaning, here's what it now looks like: PHOTO



Here are some photos of that river when the tide is down:

I may not have the arrow pointing EXACTLY right, but I'm damn close. Compare this view with the original photo. The sea weed looks VERY similar!! I'll look up and down the shoreline a bit more from different angles and see if I can actually see the rig. I'm sure I have the right bridge, and the right side of the river. Just have to narrow it down to the exact square meter!

Cool. If it's there, it will be tough to get to. Looks like quite a drop from the bank to the river bed.

HogWild, you are my new hero! What an incredible idea you had for tracking this theng down (or at least getting close). If we ever meet I am buying the beer!









Say, can your magic computer stuff find that Mouse guy? Some of us may want to have a word with him.

may have found it ...

I believe that I may have located the foundered sidecar:

if you blow up this shot and look almost directly under the ramp that lies to the right of the bridge:



You can see a very suspicious-looking blob:



Sorry about the poor quality - this is an 8x digital expansion which i had to shrink to fit on the site - but the artifact inside the red box really looks correct - it's oblong, about the right size, and I can see the wheel in the original.

This is an odd way to spend time, although I imagine it's SLIGHTLY more productive than viewing satellite photos of nude beaches.

Cheers

Jim

Well, we know where it is...anyone in the area with some spare time, a case of beer and a couple of mates with shovels?
