I ran a DR 650 for 9 years with a Ural hack on it. Good off road and good on road. I had the sidecar brake rigged so that I could vary the pressure it provided
by moving my foot around on the pedal. This would change the percentage of braking power between the hack wheel and the back wheel.

Nice find Mike. I could almost get excited about a sidecar set-up like that. Then I think why not just get a Samurai? I almost bought one like this in classic Tonka livery only it was a full hardtop with the big 2 ft wind-up key on back where spare tire goes. Too cute, but too overpriced. Tonka.jpg
I suppose a little more cargo room could always be added on... images.jpeg

I agree Fred the Samurai is a great little rig. Actually one of the easiest engines I've ever worked on. And the little thing will go almost anywhere.

Sounds alot like a bike we all have a fondness for. :cool:
