    They would, especially since a highway peg took out my very small and dangerous tail light.

    My bike was made in the early part of 1955, so it is actually just a R50.

    Make no mistake, they cost just as much as the Cash 2's.

    '43 r75

    Guys,
    Here is my 1943 R75 still under restoration, but at least it is now running.
    (That ugly old guy shoving it into gear, is me)

    The next time your at the National MOA rally, watch for it. I'll have the MG 34 machine gun of the side car, along with a original 1943 fuel (Jerry) can on the hack.
    These are pretty cool bikes. They have a high/low range shift on the input shaft, plus 4 gears with reverse. This gives you 8 forward gears, and 2 in reverse. And, the this bike is equipped with a differential on the final drive. This means both the bike wheel and the side car wheel pull. And there is a lock out lever that you can use to lock the differential so both wheels will pull without spinning when it is stuck in the mud. When you use this feature, you cannot steer the bike any longer. No matter what you do with the handlebars, the bike goes straight ahead. The other interesting feature is that it has hydraulic drum brakes on the rear wheel of the bike and the side car wheel. When the bike is finished, with the fuel cans, storage boxes, and machine gun, it will weigh in at around 1000 lbs. Fast it is not, but it makes up for that in being unusual.
