Chinese sidecar is all metal "Flying Tiger" police sidecar.

I like to tell people that the tube under the sidecar is for the "sewer system", or a "TOW Missile", but the truth is that I carry a beach umbrella that I put over the rig at rallies.  Alternatively it could carry a fishing pole, or...???

Sidecar seat and armrests are custom units by Rich Maund of Rich's Cycle Upholstery.  Rich specializes in upholstery products for Russian sidecar rigs and Moto Guzzi motorcycles.

Brooklands windscreen looks good but not a whole lot of protection.  I've bought a second one and planned on having a larger piece of glass/plexi to put in the frame so I could just switch them using the two wing nuts.

There is a monroe 125 pound air-shock on the sidecar.  When I know I will be hauling a load I just pump in the appropriate amount of air.  Plan was to next mount a Gold Wing shock pump on the bike.

Electric lean would be nice but with the air-shock you can balance the rig by adding or removing air.

Sidecar is a highly customized Chinese "Flying Tiger" police sidecar from Mainland China.

Custom tonneau cover.  Heavy duty boat cover canvas with snaps and water barrier.

Spare tire is off a Russian Dnepr and could use some clean-up, new spokes and such.


Spare tire is from an old Russian Dnepr and could stand to have the spokes tightened and everything polished.  Usual pretty rough Russian workmanship.

This is the whole package

I'm not the best at cleaning and polishing as I'd much rather be riding, so it is not going to be perfect and you will probably be able to spot small nicks in the paint, or gobs of dirt, but all in all iit is in very nice condition.. 

135db, should wake up the cell phone talking SUV drivers

Optional Moto Guzzi hard bags by National.

Valve Covers and rear peg braces were custom powdercoated red by dealer prior to pick-up.


Custom Chrome "Fishtail" pipes.  I left the stock muffled crossover in so they are not "too" loud.  Comes with the original pipes which have been wrapped since about new.

The question I get most from people is:  "what year is it" and when I tell them "2002" they are shocked.  Everyone other than the Guzzisti think it is an old bike.

Wish I could say that was my boat in the background.

Optional Moto Guzzi "California Touring" clear screen by National

Sidecar fender is fibreglass.

Sidecar frame and wheel are Russian "Sputnik"

This motorcycle would be great for touring, but if you plan on having a passenger in the chair on long trips you may want to consider adding leading link front end, a different, smaller tire and rim and possibly making the lean adjustable.
