So, would you end up having to put a booster seat in the sidecar? Think so to be legal.

That Valkerie is a steal at 10K. To me, sidecars go better with cruiser style bikes. I wouldn't mind one, but I am flat out of garage space.

The Beemer and GW rigs would be cool. Even cooler if you mount some fake missles and rockets on the side.

*scratches head* whats the legal age to ride behind again? like 5?


im not so sold on the sidecar.... probably because im not a cruiser guy. aaaand putting one on a sport bike seems kinda lame to me......


that last one looks pretty cool though.

Prior to September 1, 2009 there was no minimum age, height or weight requirement. HB537 passed in the 81st Legislative Session and it requires a passenger be at least five years old. No changes were made to helmet requirements: if under 21 years old a passenger must still wear a helmet, if over 21 years old a passenger can ride without a helmet if the driver meets the helmet exemption requirements.

The OP rig is awesome, especially at only $10K. Now if it was me, with 9 mi of backroads (no interstate) I would get this:




There is the more expensive (and cooler) 2WD version, but the 1WD is only $10K new.

Russian Motorcycle with Sidecar - $3300 (Sulphur)





Russian Dnepr MT-16. It's a two wheel drive bike (powered sidecar wheel). I tore this bike down a couple of years ago to repaint it. Some personal issues came up and I haven't been able to find the time to put it back together. All the parts are here plus lots of new spare parts. I also have the manuals and pics that I took as I disassembled the bike. It was running great when I took it apart. It has a clear title. I have almost $6000 in the bike. I'm asking $3,300 because of it's current condition. I will trade for something of equal value like a CLEAN dependable 4 wheeler, tractor, vehicle, firearm or ?????.

**The bike will have to be rebuilt and no I will not rebuild it. If I did I would just keep it.**

Here are some links to videos showing these things in action.

Thanks
