The XS, and the Sidecar of Death
« on: Aug 27, 2012, 10:56:34 »
Picked up a Dnepr this weekend after a 4 hour drive.







At the moment it appears to be a bit of a mix. The frame has a green under coating and the tag indicates a MT-9 model, the side car has a red undercoating and is tagged as a K750 model, the engine is a 750 flathead, so will have to do some research to propperly identify.

Should be awesome - looking forward to it.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

Signing up, love a good sidecar rigg.  They cruise all day long at 55-60 MPH and that feels fast as hell on these old girls!

Here are some pics after I got it home. I decided to spray 2 cans of PB Blaster on everything and let it soak in until tomorrow. Then I will start the official tear down.
