Its classified as a sidecar. I built it for El Mirage dry lake and Bonneville. As I said its powered by an old Weslake 500 single (pushrod not cammy). Lots of fun. The best speed so far has been 126 at Bonneville. Heres a short video.

Thanks. Its a hoot to ride. Not very fast but it has the 500 pushrod sidecar gas and fuel records at Bonneville and El Mirage. Its entirely home made and yes, I'm starting to feel a bit Burt Munroish. But its too much fun to stop!



Sorry put up the wrong photo. This is my other machine. Equally fun to ride.

I've had several two, three and four wheels. Currently I have a 2008 HD XL1200N going through a full transformation into a cafe while I'm deployed to Afghanistan.

Good looking bike. I'm digging the gold.



The black XR1200 looks too cool for words.

Not going to post pictures for safety purposes but I currently have a nice black 2007 Honda CRF250...which is a bitch to me and has had to have new head 3 times in one racing season and the engine has now blown up...big job too! Before that I had my lovely 2005 YZ 125...which we ended up making so fast and very enjoyable to ride. My first bike was a 1998 Kawaaki KX125...with the purple seat and bits

I have two, neither of them in a roadworthy state at the moment. One has been in the family for about 15 years and is not getting any better, needs some work to get back on the road. The other is my winter 'project' and is in pieces all over the garage. Neither bike is impressive or worth any money
