The XS, and the Sidecar of Death

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.

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.

Therapy is expensive. Riding is cheap. You decide.

Well, I must admit I had to wiki Dnepr. Sounds like you cleaned house with the trade (remind me not to horsetrade with you) and you have the bones of a great project. Keep posting!

Yeah it really was a no-brainer trade.

Working on the Dnepr right now. I won't be going with a completely stock look on surface coatings and would love any suggestions.

Sold some of my "keeper" bikes last week to fund this project and clear some room in the shop. Spent a few hours picking up the shop tonight (many more needed) and managed to pull the some parts off, including the pipes and motor.

On that note, I've sold the last Suzuki T series bike I have, so if anyone needs T250 or T350 parts let me know, I am ready to part with them and have more than a ton, including some NOS in the package parts.

Let me see what I can get together, I'm sure I have a mess of NOS gaskets and seals you could have.
