Added a 2nd bike.. sorta

I've always wanted a hacked motorcycle. Came close to buying a goldwing with a sidecar but ended up in the hospital instead :roll: So I came home on this. Having a 3rd wheel is pretty fun and 2wd isn't bad either :)

Interesting machine.... What IS it? :?: :?:

2WD? How's that work? Differential? Sprague clutches in the axles?

When I bought my 1500 the PO was working on the clutch for a 2WD Dirt Bike! Hydraulic motor on the front wheel driven by a pump in the rear drive train.

Its a Ural, russian sidecar motorcycle.

For the 2wd there is a driveshaft from the final drive to the sidecar wheel can be engaged or disengaged by a lever.

A 2wd dirt bike sounds intense. :shock:

Looks cool. Is it difficult to handle when someones riding the sidecar?

Its a little easier to handle with someone in the sidecar. There are some weird handling things going on to riding with a sidecar but overall its much easier than riding on 2 wheels. :)

I tried driving one when I was in the Philippines back in around 2011 and their sidecar is a lot heavier even without a passenger. I haven't tried one like yours.
