We recently came across an out-of-the-way combination between a motorcycle and a coffin. No, we’re not aware of any biker actually crashing into a coffin. In this case, the coffin plays the comfortable role of the sidecar, which is attached to this pretty stock cruiser.

The bike is not even a herse and it is frequently ridden looking like this. What is your opinion about it? Or, better said, how do you think the passenger in the right feels like?

This Laverda motorcycle has suffered an incredible, truly radical transformation into a…car. In fact, it is a supercar sidecar attached to the original bike, which was heavily modified to fit the scenario.

It was built within 10 years by a Frenchman named Francois Knorreck. The reason why this 10,000 hours project lasted this long is the builder’s little spare time.

Featuring parts of a Kawasaki 1000, VW Golf GTI, Audi 80 and a Citroen Xantia as well as from BMW and Renault cars, the Snaefell, as the builder named it, is probably the most technically diversified piece of engineering.

The impressive fit and finish and the fact that the thing is totally functional leave us speechless. It even features gulfwing doors!

Russia brings sidecar motorcycles back to the world’s attention with the introduction of the all-new entry-level motorcycle called the Ural T. Ok, so they’re not that inspired when choosing a name, but we can’t help noticing how this model looks like an incursion in the glory period of such motorcycles.

Claiming all-around capabilities, the Ural T is powered by this manufacturer’s consecrated air-cooled Boxer-twin engine developing 40 horsepower and being coupled to a four-speed transmission (reverse not counted).

The best of it is that it meets modern requirements while looking like a restored, rare exemplar rather than a brand new one (the black paint scheme with maroon pinstriping does help). Also, the $9,999 price tag almost doesn’t do it justice.

When racers want to complicate their motorcycle racing career, they turn to sidecar racing and get a balancing “bonus” who’s ass might very often be at stake if things don’t go according to plan. So, how do you thing think this guy ended up in this specific situation?

Shot in 1989, this motorcycle chase that I found on Youtube catches my attention for being more complex and realistic than most modern-day scenes despite the “ingenious” defense methods. Which brings us to question I’ve long wanted to ask: Are stunts as attractive and impressive now as they were in the good old days?

An illustration from the good old days could actually reveal what usually happened with brides that either ran from the altar or didn’t get there at all. It looks like sidecars have a role after all...you wouldn’t want to see that beautiful wedding dress being caught up by the chain. The bride is caught up, let at least the dress not to be so.

Harley kept on going through bad and through good in its 105 year of existence and World War || implied some serious new approaches towards their bikes. This is how the famous sidecar-equipped Harley XA ended up on the scene.

And those who say that Harley-Davidson only built V-Twin powered motorcycles should look no further than the Boxer engine on this baby and reconsider their affirmations. But there is a strong justification for that: Germany’s BMW’s were mobility themselves.
