Thanx :), I want to go back to what has returned to my modeling and it was mainly motorcycle models, so after the 74-Z Speeder Bike I did the Daimler Reitwagen, the Suzuki GSX R750 and now the Tron.
It's also a small reminder of the models I've made years ago:
Jawa TS-500 a Yamaha YZ-500:

BMW R 16 with side-car:

and post apocalyptic motorbike - Mad Zax's Chopper :) :

I love the BMW with the sidecar!! I owned a Velorex sidecar for many years, and logged many 1000's of miles with it. ;)

I glued it BMW about 8 years ago, I was still young :)
I even received a certain price from a local salesman Schreiber-Bogen (model of your choice) ;)

...thanx, but here are far better modelers ;)
...BMW - I think I would probably do otherwise today, but I liked it that way :)
...I like dogs with a chin (I have a third schnauzer already) , so therefore is in the sidecar this dog;)

I loved my sidecar. I rode my motorcycle 6 years straight, through snow and any kind of weather. I could carry tools and cold weather ger in the trunk, and also carried a sleeping bag, in case I got too cold, which did happen one night. It was 10 degrees Fahrenheit, and I had to pull over, and craw inside the sleeping bag, inside the side car. I was up to temperature with 10 minutes, put on some warmer gear, and made it home. It also was 1:00 a.m., not many places open in the backwoods of Connecticut. Actually, no places open!!! :)

Mine was exactly like the one pictured below, except I mounted a headlight in place of the small light on the fender, a Halogen that was extremely bright. I should have never traded that side car for a car, and I never should have sold the car I traded it for!! :) :

I have no idea, but knowing how much that sidecar weighed, it must have had to work hard to reach 35 mph! ;)

Nice stand, the cuts out are really "classy". ;)

That stand is really excellent. The concept lends itself nicely for many different model displays. Very nice!! :)
