Scooter Bob's store shut down, see his web page. I had looked at him years ago as well. From his site says, he is working directly for the importer or builder now or something. There is a link to an email of someone he knows who is still handling the purchases though. For all the work though, I'd still say anyone who seriously wants one should just go for the Ural. To each their own though.

A Chang or Chang with a BMW engine.......from Jimbo's Sidecars in Beijing. He's an American who speaks English.

The Chang importation issue isn't an issue so long as your paperwork is in order and is of a certain age.............I brought my Chang back from China and registered it in California. No major hurdles or hoops to jump thru.

Parts are cheap and easy to get.........5-10 days by post.

How much was it from Jimbo's? The Bmw power-plant would definitely be more reliable.

If you can get it registered in California, anywhere else should be easy.

You have to ask Jim.........mine came from elsewhere. I purchased it locally and rode it when I was in China (Shanghai).

I recommend Jim, I know him, seen his work and knows he stand behind his product.........and you'll have zero communication issues. Promises made will be promises kept.

That's not a BMW motor. That's a Chang OHV motor with an outboard distributor.

I can't speak for Jimbo, but the other companies that I looked at usually charged around $3500 or so for the build. That didn't count importing/shipping into the U.S. That was several years ago, they've probably gone up. Here's a few links for you:

http://www.cjsidecar.com/
http://www.bmwsidecar.com/ (Jimbo's)
http://www.750sidecar.com.cn/
http://www.sidecar-leo.com/main.html
http://www.sidecar-solution.com/

Here's the thread from here about the importation process:

I thought that was so obvious that it didn't bear a mention.

Hey now, you have a Ural lump to re-re-rebuild!

If you are curious about the CJs, Contact ScooterBob, real name Greg. He's very knowledgeable about the CJs as well as the old Soviet flatheads. He still has connections for CJ parts. Immulmen (Chris) on here and at RI is also a big CJ guy, and really knows his stuff.

They both will tell you the CJs can be made to be very reliable and even will cruise all day at 55-60 if they're massaged a bit. The parts are available and cheaper than Ural even.

Windham Maine!
I have one for sale. Have done a bunch of mechanical upgrades and is in good condition. It is a M1M 12 volt flathead. Bike has 2000k motor has 5000k. I have not ridden the bike much but the motor was in my Ural for the 5000k and is a strong runner. This one has a sidecar brake and I do have a Ural front brake if interested in upgrading that. You would need a Ural wheel also.
