German HU Sidecar based on , chile
I'm selling my 1991 HU Sidecar as it's time to head back home and I'm running out of time. One of the bearings of the transmission seems to be broken (I was told 30USD) and I dont want to bother flying in a new one here to Chile. but it's also quite probable that you can find one locally. This bearing must be replaced before continuing on.
At the very moment I'm organizing shipping back my bike. but if someone is interested drop me a line to philipe.reinisch (at)gmx.at
It's a sidecar made by Horst Ullrich Google search for Horst Ullrich
The base is a bmw 100gs, 2V engine.
The engine has been openend and fully revised before I left Germany. I did approx. 20000km here in South America, the bike has approx. 82000km.
It has two gasoline tanks (22l+40l) - depending on the main jet setting and final drive shaft in use approx.500-700km of fuel autonomy.
The rear and sidecar tires are from a VW beetle and typically last 10.000km or even much more - depending of the use on asphalt or gravel road. The front tire is from a KTM motorcycle and has just been changed (after 20.000km)
both front and the one sidecar shockabsorber are brand new and bought from Horst Ullrich directly. (The two rear shockabsorbers are from Ohlins). I also just changed final drive shaft to a R65 one 500km ago - now it's generally slower but much more powerful: at 4000m+ you can overtake trucks and heavy loaded local cars without any problems - even fully loaded 2-Up. (You will love this - it's much better than eating dust on these narrow andean roads)
The bike has a box that acts as a comfortable passenger seat - it is perfectly suited to travel 2-Up! (Suspension and final drive shaft are at the moment adjusted to 2-Up riding)
Inside of the box - protected from the cold of the night - the bike houses a big car battery that can be used to light a 5W lamp for hours when camping without endangering to start the next morning. (A strong working battery is also very useful when at high altitudes after a -20c night you are trying to start very early in the morning in order to go when e.g. the El Tatio Geysers are most active - the other bike didnt start at all so we simply 2-Uped and went there... Of course we had a great 3-course breakfast there including a hot cocao - everything was stored in one of the 3 lockable boxes).
Also there is a second head lamp attached to the sidecar - the bike has the same lighting abilities as a car!
All the maintenances have been done more than regularly by myself (what is really straightforward with a 100GS) - every 2. day (foam) air filter cleaning, every 2000km oil change (7500km recommended but I prefer to play it safe. Please note that the bike is not loosing oil at all), every 3000-4000km change of spark plugs and oil filter.
It is registered in Germany.
Price: 10.000Euros or 13200USD
