Hi Guys,

I don't have a roadgoing sidecar but do have a Shelbourne racing sidecar fitted with an 08 Yamaha R6 engine.



Our team is called KazmiK Racing and we are now into our 3rd year of roadracing. My crazy wife started the project but it's an absolute blast.

She is my passenger and so far we have raced at Shannonville (Ontario), Road America (Elkhart Lake - WI), and Summit Point in WV.

This year we will also be at the 1st Annual Festival of Sidecars in Loudon - NH for a racing event.

The bike runs on 8 - 10 inch slick tires and has just been upgraded with the new engine. It used to have a mid 90's YZF600 Thundercat engine in it.

Here is a picture of the bike with the older engine in it.



I believe that the bike was raced at the Isle of Man before it was shipped to Canada.

I've gotta say that there are awesome looking bikes on here - maybe I'll get a roadgoing sidecar once we are done with racing.

Anyway nice to meet you all.

Take care.

Mick

Lovely colour and the style seems familiar, great to here from you.

Was the bike raced as a solo or a sidecar ?

Look forward to seeing some more photo's, and a bit more about your local area.

Hello There Mick,

Canada .. the land of my dreams .. long story Very Happy .

Warm Welcome to this truly international HPS group site .. most of the guys are in the USA .. but a few of us are way over the Pond and well south of the Centre Line.

Your rig looks like a it's real 'one off' special, hand crafted for the job .. I love it. You are so lucky to have a wife who's as daft (if not dafter) than you .. hanging your bum out of a Race Chair requires a certain ..
.. 'commitment' !!

Keith is in the UK, I'm in Southern Spain .. but we are meeting on our rigs over in the Isle of Man for the Manx GP in September.

So .. if you could just please ship your outfit over .. we could give it a good blast over the mountain .. just for old time sake like Confused

Great to hear from you Buddy .. Bear Hugs and XX to the Monkey Razz

Stay Safe Both Wink Trev The Polar Bear

Hi again Mick,

It really would be interesting to trace the history of this outfit ..

I guess the name Cor Blimey (on the fairing)) might be a clue it started life down in the London area ??

How are the controls fitted .. I can't see any front break hand lever .. are they all linked up to a foot peddle.

It looks like you spend a fortune on Lock Wire .. I love it the more I look the better it gets Very Happy

Yep .. we need more photos and more info ... Please Razz

Stay Safe Wink Polar Bear (Spain)

Polar Bear,

These pictures are from last year.

We are still getting the new engine up & running. 08 Fuel Injected 600 with an extra 30HP

Once finished I will get some extra pics posted.

The brake pedal for all 3 wheels is on the left and the gear change is on the right.

Take care.

Mick
