I linked this picture off of 3rad's web site



Is any one familiar with these front end's?

Their website is in German and as near as I can tell, using babelfish, they build frame and suspension for other sidecars. One picture shows this fron end on a Honda with an EML Speed 2000.

Is this something that can be adapted to an existing rig, or do they start all over with the frame / subframe?

Any one imported one to the US?

What kind of money are we talking?

and while I'm at it, any one have a rust free inner front fender for a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Town Sedan?

I wish I had the opportunity to see some of these rigs up close and in person.
Looking at the pictures, I sometimes canít see how they function exactly.
Hoping to see something this summer at a few unique rallies.
Blah Blah Blah

I have never seen one either but it looks like you could use a hub off of a front wheel drive car of some kind and replace the axle with a tube to run throuh the hub and support the brake rotor....... hmmm.

and i very empressed of this system. This is the best i could find on the market. Also the break is out of the wheel and can better cooling by air while running. So also the break power is fantastic and cannot compare with other existing systems.

They are 2 breaks on the wheel. One (blue) is for the foot break and the second (black one) is for hand break.
So in case you can push both. Amazing

Might be able to adapt it to the front of a chevy drag bike. Hmmmm Question

Oh, Claude, I gave a sidecar with a body like a quarter midget to a friend and he still has it. I'll get you a picture when I get home.
